Abstract: The IBM Business Process Manager Advanced: Process Server for z/OS Version 8.0.1 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 describes and demonstrates the construction of a BPM Solution using these products on z/OS. This workshop provides understanding to plan, implement and configure the Process Server V 8 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 Network Deployment cell which the students will also configure. There are also useful configuration and troubleshooting tips to improve the success when installing BPM at your home site.
