Open source business process management
Red Hat has released Version 6 of its open source business process management suite. Red Hat explains JBoss BPM Suite 6 is a platform for business process management that includes all the capabilities of JBoss BRMS and adds support for modeling, automation, simulation and monitoring of business processes as well as complex event processing. JBoss BRMS is a platform for business rules management and complex event processing that is used to host an organization’s business rules and to make business decisions based on those rules, as an alternative to coding them directly in applications.
Red Hat highlights the following capabilities of the JBoss BPM Suite:
Visibility—enables organizations to gain better visibility into how their business is functioning, identify where bottlenecks may be occurring and determine what they can do to improve the way the organization works.
Agility—business users can own, manage and change processes, rules and policies in response to changing market conditions, allowing the organization to respond faster and compete more effectively.
Consistency—organizations can execute key processes and decisions the same way, every time.
