Fundamentals of IBM Business Automation Workflow: Developing Workflow Solutions (WB837G)
This course introduces solution architects to the workflow capabilities in IBM Business Automation Workflow. In this course you learn how to model processes and decompose activities into nested processes. You learn the core notation elements of Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) and examine a set of detailed process requirements and identify the activities and roles involved. You translate process discovery analysis into a workflow. You model the workflow in Process Designer and create a linked process. You implement the workflow model by building business objects, variables, services, and user interfaces (coaches).
This course is a subset of the 5 day course: Developing workflow solutions using IBM Business Automation Workflow 188.8.131.52(Course code: WB835). Developers who need in-depth training with Business Automation workflow should take WB835.
This course is designed for solution architects.
