  4. 4. A business process is...<br />a collection of related, structured activities or tasks that produce a specific service or product and have to be executed in a specific sequence.<br />It often can be visualized with a flowchart as a sequence of activities.<br />
  5. 5. Processes are everywhere...<br /><ul><li>Marketing and sales
  6. 6. Customer relations
  7. 7. Human resources
  8. 8. Communications
  9. 9. Internal policies and procedures
  10. 10. Manufacturing
  11. 11. R&D</li></li></ul><li>Business Process Management (BPM) is…<br />a set of tools and methodologies<br />to model, automate, monitor and optimize<br />the processes of an organization<br />
  12. 12. Process lifecycle: continuous improvement<br />
  13. 13. Many applications are process based<br />BPM should be everywhere in any type of company<br />BUT ….<br />It is not the case today<br />Many processes are hard coded<br />
  14. 14. Why ?<br />Because BPM solutions are historically complex to implement and very expensive<br /><ul><li>So there are exclusively used by wealthiest companies for mission critical projects</li></ul>Because it can be tempting to hard code the processes<br />
  15. 15. Agenda<br />What is BPM? Why is this useful?<br />What does a BPMS provide?<br />What is BPMN?<br />From the process to the application<br />What is Bonita Open Solution?<br />How to model a process?<br />How generate a web application?<br />Under the hood<br />How to develop connectors?<br />Use theexecutionengine's API<br />
  16. 16. A Business Process Management System (BPMS) is…<br />a set of software tools<br />to implement Business Process Management<br /> in an organization<br />
  17. 17. BPMS<br />Set of tools to go from Business Process Modeling to Business Process execution and monitoring.<br />Can include extra BPM features such as process simulation, or application generation.<br />Helps transforming business logic into something that can be executed<br />
  18. 18. BPMS and agility<br />By uncoupling business logic from technical issues, a BPMS brings agility to your business.<br />Modify a process =<br />edit a diagram + redeploy a file<br />Improving business processes is transparent for people affected by these processes.<br />
  19. 19. BPMS and continuous improvement<br />Open the doors towards monitoring, reporting, business intelligence, simulation...<br />
  20. 20. Agenda<br />What is BPM? Why is this useful?<br />What does a BPMS provide?<br />What is BPMN?<br />From the process to the application<br />What is Bonita Open Solution?<br />How to model a process?<br />How generate a web application?<br />Under the hood<br />How to develop connectors?<br />Use theexecutionengine's API<br />
  21. 21. Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is…<br />A standardized graphical notation for modeling business processes<br />BPMN 2.0 standard released in January 2011<br />proposed by the Object Management Group<br />contains standard graphical elements<br />uses standard semantics<br />identifies standard execution<br />

  26. 26. BPM (for business users)<br />BPM answer to questions such as:<br />“And now, what do I have to do?”<br />“How am I expected to do that?”<br />“What is going on with the things I was involved in?”<br />BPM is all about giving to the end-user the application that exactly reproduce the way he works with those processes on a day to day.<br />

  29. 29. What are the benefits ?<br />Business logic is externalized in a process<br />The BPM solution will manage the life cycle of the process as well as human and system interactions<br />Only link between the web application and the BPM solution is the BPM API<br />
  30. 30. How could we go further ? <br />Generic graphical interface for processes<br />Process based web applications generation<br />
