IBM Business Process Manager v8.5.5 has just been released. It is not a mere fixpack, but an incremental upgrade that brings exciting new features. In my opinion, here are the five most noteworthy and cool new features you should check out:
1. Case Management
If you own IBM Business Process Manager (IBM BPM) Advanced, you can optionally purchase an add-on to enable implementing case management in IBM BPM.
2. New Client-Side Human Services
Client-Side Human Services have a new web editor that runs on a browser and that includes a full-blown human service Inspector that lets you visually debug the human services with variable inspection.
3. Responsive Coach Views for Mobile
This new feature lets you build coaches that automatically adapt to different devices without having to build custom dedicated user interfaces for each type of device.
4. Improved Ad-hoc Tasks
5. Streamlined Configuration & Migration
To make things even easier, IBM BPM v8.5.5 introduces the BPM Configuration Editor visual tool. This tool lets you define all the required configuration options in one easy-to use graphical user interface that also validates the configuration to assure consistency.
Version-to-Version migration is a very sensitive task, especially for production environments. IBM BPM v8.5.5 improves the migration process while reducing risk.
The performance of automated migration process has also been improved, allowing up to 2x-3x reductions in migration time for BPM v7.5.1 migration and up to 20x time reduction for Teamworks v6.2
