WebSphere Process Server
This is a runtime environment for flexible deployment of business processes and
orchestrates their execution. It makes plug-and-play of components a reality and
provides the secure, robust, and scalable environment needed to deploy your
mission-critical business processes. For business applications that require
business integration using different technologies, it is the ideal platform. For
more detailed information, see 6.6, “WebSphere Process Server and Integration
Developer” on page 235.
WebSphere Business Monitor
As a Web-based client/server application, it monitors processes and process
execution, measures business performance, and reports on business operations.
This provides the real-time visibility into process performance, enabling process
intervention and continuous improvement. It allows for visualization of key
performance indicators, so that the health of the business can be monitored and
arising problems can be pinpointed, allowing for immediate resolution. It also
includes support for monitoring processes running in WebSphere Process
Server. The information captured can help you identify problems, correct faults,
and change to achieve a more efficient business process. For more detailed
information on WebSphere Business Monitor, see 6.5, “WebSphere Business
Monitor” on page 222.
4.5 Implementing business process management
In this section, we describe several considerations when starting a business
process management project. The objective is to describe a set of tasks, rather
than a methodology, that can help organizations as they begin their business
process management implementation.
Determine organizational changes
This task enables you to understand the impact on your organizations. Changes
in organizational processes impact organizational objectives and resources,
such as employees, customers, and suppliers. Therefore, it is important that the
task and changes be planned well and communicated well.
