4 Exciting Resources From BPM Openhouse 2014

This week was the kickoff of the BPM Open House event online.

While I posted earlier that there were a number of reasons to attend, the biggest was to enjoy the overview and live demo given of JBoss BPM Suite on both local and bpmPaaS on OpenShift.

Before we give you the promised resources, a short recap of the event and our sessions.

We delivered our session live before a worldwide audience and opened with the following by Luis Cortes.

Improve your organization’s capability for faster growth and change with BPM, Rules and Events

BPM is no longer only about improving efficiency and productivity. According to leading analysts, 85% of organizations report that their primary objective for BPM is achieving faster growth and improved capabilities for change. Meanwhile, where once traditional BPM systems were too expensive and too complex for mid-sized businesses to setup and use now because of cloud computing BPM is becoming more accessible to a much larger audience.

So how can Business Process Management help your business quickly adapt to changing business requirements?

Join this session to:

  • Hear how a leading consumer goods manufacturer uses Red Hat BPM to manage the process of launching new products increasing sales of new product by 18% and decreasing the time to market from 15 to 9 weeks
  • Understand how you can use Business Process Management, Rules and Events to support business growth and fuel your company’s performance
  • Explore general trends on why companies from all sectors are embracing and getting results from BPM



There was then a live demo session where I walked through the various aspects of a financial project showcasing rules, events and BPM. Finally I showcased the same project in bpmPaaS, a cloud deployed JBoss BPM Suite. It was all based on the following outline.
