Organizations seeking to deliver business process management (BPM) on a service oriented architecture (SOA) have traditionally been faced with one of two compromise solutions: a workflow approach with limited connectivity of an integration approach with limited BPM functionality.

Using this unified approach results in a process layer and a service layer, each independent of the other. Changes can be made to processes without affecting the underlying services and the line-of-business applications with which they interact.

Similarly, changes can be made to the technical underpinnings of the service without impacting those business processes using the service. This flexible design approach significantly increases process agility, isolates the impact of change and allows the specialized skills of business analysts and IT developers to be properly harnessed.

TIBCO believes that to deploy effective and efficient BPM, the strength of both the BPM-oriented and EAI-oriented approaches must be combined and built to operate in an SOA.

The following TIBCO products deliver this functionality:

  • TIBCO iProcess Suite software
  • TIBCO BusinessWorks software

TIBCO has more than 15 years of experience in delivering integration software and is a recognized leader in terms of market share and analyst rankings.As the need for BPM on an SOA was emerging, TIBCO completed the acquisition of leading BPM vendor Staffware and has integrated its best-of-breed BPM software, now called iProcess Suite, with BusinessWorks, BusinessFactor and Hawk.
