IBM BPM 7.5 platform

Heart of the new IBM’s BPM platform is the Process Center. When you install IBM BPM Advanced 7.5, amongst other things you get a Process Center with Process Center Server profile. Process Center is a central repository for all artifacts (data objects, interfaces, etc.), created and used during business process design. It enables us to use and modify these artifacts in Process and also Integration Designer. (more…)
