IBM Business Process Manager

Abstract: The IBM Business Process Manager Advanced: Process Server for z/OS Version 8.5 is the latest offering of the Business Process Management (BPM) product suite on the z/OS platform. Combined with the IBM Process Designer, IBM Integration Designer, and Process Center Advanced are used to Author, Develop, and Deploy BPM applications on z/OS.
This workshop demonstrates the construction of a BPM Solution using these products on z/OS, and provides understanding to plan, implement and configure the Process Server V 8.5 in your z/OS environment, and to deploy and test BPM applications.
The hands-on lab exercises help build a working Process Server on the lab z/OS systems, using a WebSphere Application Server V8.5 Network Deployment cell which the students will also configure. The spreadsheet provided in techdoc WP102261 is required. There are also useful configuration and troubleshooting tips to improve the success when installing BPM at your home site.

  • Configuration of IBM BPM:Process Server for z/OS V8.5
  • Use of the IBM Integration Designer (IID) and IBM Process Designer to create a business process, application artifacts, and deploy them to the Process Server runtime.
