Red Hat Summit Middleware Keynote and Demo

This year, JBoss BPM Suite 6 / jBPM6 was an important part of the middleware keynote once again !

Mark Little explained why the release of the JBoss BPM Suite 6 is an important step forward.

And later it was used as part of the keynote demo to drive requests (coming in from twitter), all running on openshift, set up on a bunch of laptops.

The full keynote video is available here, enjoy!

Come meet us at Red Hat Summit in SFO

This week, Red Hat Summit is taking place in San Francisco, and a lot of us (engineer, product management, solution architects, etc.) will be there at the Moscone Conference Center.  If you are attending Summit or DevNation (the developer-oriented conference co-located with Summit), feel free to come and see Mark Proctor's presentations on Drools / JBoss BRMS and/or my presentation on jBPM / JBoss BPM Suite.

There will be plenty of opportunities to meet us as well, like for example the DevNation hacknight on Wednesday, but should you want to meet up but can't find us, try reaching out to us on twitter, @markproctor or @KrisVerlaenen.

There will also be plenty of opportunity to go and watch one of the demos at the JBoss booth, and the Usability Team has set up booth as well where you can go and check out JBoss BPM Suite 6 and provide feedback, so definitely go take a look.

Hope to see you all there, hopping in my flight now !

Webinar (April 10th): Business Process Simulation

Get More Value out of BPM with BPSim Simulation


Thursday, April 10th, 11:00AM Eastern

Business process design with BPMN2 can be complex, with many feasible options for implementing a business strategy. How can process designers evaluate alternative approaches before committing to a costly rollout of an untried process design?

Recently, there have been great strides in new process simulation tools, intended to answer this question and help analysts optimize their process designs before any real data is available to test them against. The BPSim standard is now emerging to provide a common framework for defining and exchanging simulation data in conjunction with BPMN2 models.

Join BPM.com's Nathaniel Palmer with guest Kris Verlaenen to learn how BPSim compatible tools can help you understand how business process designs will perform in practice, and where to look to improve and optimize them.
As part of the presentation we will see a live demonstration of Red Hat's new process simulation tool, included with JBoss BPM Suite. Attendees will also receive access to the developer version of BPM Suite, and the exclusive demonstration models used in the presentation.

Why You Should Attend:
  • Learn How to Use Business Process Simulation for Data-Driven Process Excellence
  • Gain Both Actionable Ideas and a Complete Working BPM Suite with Process Simulation Capabilities
  • Jumpstart Your BPM Programs With Pre-built and Ready-to-Run Simulation Models
Who Should Attend:
  • Business Architects and BPM Practitioners Looking to Get Started with Process Simulation
  • Business Analysts Seeking to Leverage BPM and Simulation for Data-Driven Process Optimization
  • Anyone Looking to Get Started with BPM, BPMN2 Process Modeling, or Process Simulation
