Red Hat Process Automation Enhanced
for Both IT and Business Analysts
May 6, 2019
Red Hat Process Automation has new capabilities designed to address functional and knowledge gaps between IT developers and business analysts, enabling them to apply domain-specific expertise to the development of applications that automate processes and decisions to more rapidly adapt to a changing business environment.
According to industry analyst firm Forrester, "The way we do business is changing, and there is a major push underway to reframe organizational operational processes around digital transformation efforts. The nature of core organizational processes is changing to meet customer expectations and keep up with the increasing threat of more automated, disruptive competitors."1
As a result of this shift, and the increasing role of software as a catalyst for competitive differentiation, both business and development teams are now on the front lines of digital transformation. Red Hat Process Automation enables these teams to work together—each contributing their own unique expertise, and each using tools and technologies tailored to their skills—to create modern, cloud-native applications aligned with key business objectives.
To support this collaborative and integrated approach, the latest release of Red Hat Process Automation introduces a collaborative environment where individuals can make changes to project assets independently and simultaneously. Using these shared workspaces can lead to a more efficient, iterative and agile development process.
Mike Piech, vice president and
general manager, Middleware, Red Hat said, "We’re excited about how Red
Hat Process Automation extends the development productivity and
operational reliability benefits of our application environment vision
to encompass direct participation of business stakeholders."
New capabilities designed to help users more easily model processes and decisions, and build applications to automate them, include:
•An integrated modeler for building Decision Model Notation (DMN)-compliant decision models;
•An editor specifically designed for creating case management models (currently in Tech Preview);
•Test scenarios that enable users to define, test and validate decision models before moving them into production. Test scenarios work with both traditional models, created with rule and decision table editors, and with DMN models created with a DMN editor.
•Rule models that can be
compiled into an executable form that are designed to improve start-up
and execution times, and as a result, applications can better conform to
the needs of cloud and Function-as-a-Service environments.
Marc Aché, CTO, Engineering,
WorkFusion said, "The combination of WorkFusion and Red Hat Process
Automation enables companies to expand their level of automation for
business processes. With Red Hat managing the end-to-end process and
WorkFusion orchestrating labor-intensive manual tasks with intelligent
automation technology, more aspects of enterprise operations can be
fully automated — which can lead to lower costs with greater agility and
Red Hat Process Automation is available now.
