Practical BPM Collaboration

There is a new form of Business Process Management (BPM) collaboration rising.

We have been exploring and documenting how we see the collaboration between business people, developers and sys admins in The Process Cycle Layer. Traditional BPM focusses on forward engineering or round trip engineering. But in our experience that is a bottleneck for mass adoption that we targeted previously and now with Activiti even more. In the Process Cycle Layer we sketch how that bottleneck in the collaboration can be removed by focussing on discussions, links and social interaction that spans the whole business process automation lifecycle.

Now, Bernd Ruecker just presented his ideas in Making the BPMN Roundtrip real. It turns out that those ideas align very well. They have been working out this idea in a project called camunda fox. This seems like a great validation of our thoughts. Very interesting stuff.


  1. Okay, how many tweet links to your posts do I have to do in order to convince you to publish full feeds? :)

  2. I agree with Sandy - full feeds are great.

  3. @Sandy: You're doing great. Keep it up ;-)

    @all OK. I did it originally cause someone said it was vital for his stats. Well, probably your convenience is more important then my stats. I'll see if i can find that setting.

    Keep tweeting, Sandy. Keep tweeting ;-)

  4. thanks!! you can put stats on your feed, btw: use feedburner to track the number of subscribers.
