jBPM on Red Hat Summit / DevNation

From June 21st – 26th, Boston will be the place to be for the Red Hat Summit and DevNation 2015 conferences.
This year, I’ll be presenting two sessions on Summit:
Wednesday, June 24 (10:40 am – 11:40 am)
Enabling business users to update their applications and processes is an integral part of business automation. Doing so requires rich client web technology and a powerful workbench to customize and extend business rules management (BRM) and business process management (BPM) solutions.

Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite is a flexible and powerful BPM platform, offering business process modeling, execution, and monitoring capabilities for numerous use cases. It can be used in different environments, and, as a result, the platform can be integrated in multiple architectures and configured in detail. The platform can be customized to provide customer-specific enhancements.

In this session, you will:

  • View a live process-driven application demo.
  • Discover the top technical things you need to know about the latest version of JBoss BPM Suite.
  • Get answers to some of the most asked questions.
  • Learn the truth about BPM myths.
  • Find out what’s next for JBoss BPM Suite.
Continuously improve your processes with Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite
Kris Verlaenen — jBPM Project Lead, Red Hat
Thursday, June 25 (1:20 pm – 2:20 pm)
Business process management (BPM) lets your business operate smoothly and in a controlled manner. But to get the results you want, you have to be willing to continuously improve your processes. Join us to see how jBPM and Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite help you continually improve your processes.

We will explain and demo how to:

  • Collaborate on designing processes.
  • Manage your processes using multiple repositories and projects.
  • Promote business assets (from development to production).
  • Execute different versions of your processes in parallel spaces.
  • Perform process instance migration.
  • Implement a new functionality as a process. 
[Credits for this proposal go out to Maciej, who did most of the work]
I won’t be presenting on DevNation this year, but I’ll definitely be around as well, for some late night coding and if necessary some beers 🙂 Let me know if you’re planning to attend and would like to meet up at some point !
There will be numerous other interesting Summit presentations where jBPM will be involved as well, for example:
And a lab as well, on integration with Fuse:
