Optimize business processes to reduce complexity and improve productivity


IBM® Business Process Manager is a full-featured, consumable business process management (BPM) platform designed for faster time to deployment. It includes tooling and run time for process design, execution, monitoring and optimization of business processes.

IBM Business Process Manager can be used almost immediately in its standard configuration or in an easily customizable configuration. It provides a highly integrated environment that scales smoothly and easily from initial project to enterprise-wide program, providing faster time to value with improved user productivity.

IBM® Business Process Manager is a unified platform for analyzing and improving business operations through a combination of business process and basic case management, service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process analytics. It includes Process Server, Process Center and a visual design environment for process, case and integration requirements. It supports process improvement across a spectrum of work patterns, from highly automated, straight-through processing to dynamic unstructured processes.

IBM Business Process Manager provides built-in support for business process and case handling based on IBM Business Process Management (BPM) technology and Enterprise Content Management (ECM) basic case management capabilities. It improves knowledge worker productivity through intelligent process automation and support for ad-hoc activities in a collaborative, social environment.

IBM Business Process Manager includes an embedded restricted-use content repository to support basic case documents and folders. The restricted-use content repository can be extended to support unlimited content management use cases with IBM ECM.
