The digitization of business processes has become a key challenge for organisations and enterprises. From the development perspective, essentially two things are needed for a modern application design:
- a process description – created using the BPMN 2.0 standard
- a runtime environment – to execute and persist business data in a secure way
With the Imixs Process Manager we are now releasing a new platform that combines the design and the execution of business processes in a highly scalable and easy to use environment. Organisations can start quickly and develop and test their own business process. And of course the open source platform can be customized and extended to be used for development as well as for production.
The Imixs Process Manager comes with a Docker profile that can be started within seconds in a containerised environment like Kubernetes.
A business process is designed with the help of the Imixs-BPMN modeller tool. New models are uploaded and executed directly within the Imixs Process Manager.
With the new build-in custom form generator, the Imixs Process Manager allows the definition of custom forms directly in a BPMN 2.0 model without writing one line of code. New forms are defined by a XML template which brings much more flexibility into the process design.
<?xml version="1.0"?> <imixs-form> <imixs-form-section label="Order"> <item name="_orderid" type="text" label="Order ID:" /> <item name="_orderdate" type="date" label="Order Date:" /> </imixs-form-section> </imixs-form>
Of course, the Imixs Process Modeller is open source and can be forked on GitHub.
The Imixs Process Manager provides a great new and easy way to start with modern business process management.
