Sessions by topic: Red Hat JBoss BRMS

Application and data integration

This track provides overview and deep dive sessions that cover the products, features, and technologies for datacenter modernization and consolidation. Example topics include: storage migration, performance optimization, management of data in distributed applications, and middleware integration. Attendees will learn how to enable lines of business to rapidly respond to business events in an automated manner, automate rules-driven business processes, and integrate applications, data, and embedded devices across all cloud environments.

Migrating a Tier-1 order management process to Red Hat JBoss Middleware

Jaroslav Blazek — Senior technology architect, Accenture
Radan Base — Senior system analyst, Accenture

New Order Engine (NOE) is a composite application based on Red Hat JBoss BRMS and Red Hat JBoss Fuse Service Works with process management, rules engine, messaging, and integration capabilities. NOE is a configurable, product-driven order decomposition and fulfillment engine that streamlines transformations from commercial orders into a common data model based on the shared information data (SID) model standard. The application provides dynamic decomposition into fulfillment tasks and real-time provisioning of service orders into multiple backend systems.

In this session, we’ll explore the application’s architecture details and discuss its implementation to a Tier-1 European telecommunications provider, replacing its commercial orchestration platform with an open source alternative.

Topics: Cost savings, Flexibility, Red Hat JBoss BRMS, Red Hat JBoss Fuse Service Works, Red Hat JBoss Middleware, Scalability

Integrate your BPMS processes with Red Hat JBoss Fuse Service Works

Babak Mozaffari — Middleware architect, Red Hat

Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite beta allows developers to simplify complex requirements by modeling them as modular rules and business-centric process models. While the beta can communicate with third-party systems through standard Java and web service interfaces, Red Hat JBoss Fuse Service Works supports bidirectional integration, providing access to a central service bus that can help implement service-oriented architecture (SOA) and act as a central integration hub.

In this session, Babak Mozaffari will:

  • Share simple examples of BPMS applications interacting with JBoss Fuse Service Works.
  • Detail the integration between Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite beta and JBoss Fuse Service Works.
  • Highlight the features and capabilities of each product.

Topics: Flexibility, Interoperability, Red Hat JBoss BRMS, Red Hat JBoss Middleware

Business and IT strategy alignment

This track targets the juncture of business and IT considerations necessary to create competitive advantage. Example topics include: new architecture deployments, competitive differentiators, long-term and hidden costs, and security. Attendees will learn how to align architecture and technology decisions with their specific business needs and how and when IT departments can provide competitive advantage.

Intelligent business management in the cloud

Vamsi Chemitiganti — Chief solution architect, Financial Services, Red Hat
James Labocki — Senior principal product marketing manager, Red Hat

While cloud solutions claim to empower line-of-business (LOB) users to make successful IT decisions, most enterprises are simply optimizing IT infrastructures on new infrastructure platforms without giving any control to LOB users.

In this session, you’ll learn how a Business Rules Management System (BRMS) can be integrated with a cloud management platform to deliver new value to LOB users and their organizations. You’ll learn about several use cases that illustrate the value of combining business rules management with cloud management. Specifically, you’ll learn how to:

  • Respond to complex cloud infrastructure events according to defined business rules (that can be based on market conditions and/or regulatory policies).
  • Give cloud users and administrators the ability to define complex business workflows based on those cloud infrastructure events.
  • Allow cloud users to place cloud workloads based on granular, user-defined policies that span the infrastructure, hypervisor, storage, and application tiers.

The session will include a demonstration of an integrated BRMS and cloud management solution (Red Hat JBoss BRMS and Red Hat CloudForms) that delivers new control to LOB users as they embrace cloud infrastructure platforms like OpenStack.

Topics: OpenStack, Red Hat CloudForms, Red Hat JBoss BRMS

The next wave in BPM from Red Hat

Phil Simpson — Principal product marketing manager, Red Hat
Prakash Aradhya — Product management director, BPM and BRMS, Red Hat

Over the last few years, business process management (BPM) solutions have seen rapid adoption across the enterprise. Innovative organizations are recognizing the value of BPM for improving the efficiency and agility of business operations, and thereby boosting competitiveness and the bottom line.

Late last year, Red Hat launched a new BPM platform, Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite beta. The offering resulted from an extensive engineering effort to merge our popular business rules management system (BRMS) with BPM technology acquired from Polymita. The result is a comprehensive platform for business automation, incorporating 3 key technologies–business rules, business processes, and complex event processing.

Join us for this session where you’ll learn about the capabilities, vision, and roadmap for Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite. Specifically, you’ll learn about:

  •  The new, business friendly tools for process modeling, user interface creation, etc.
  •  Process analysis and simulation
  •  Task management and process monitoring
  •  Business activity monitoring

After the session, you’ll have a solid understanding of the capabilities and direction of the product, and will be ready to use the free developer subscription to evaluate it for your needs.

Topics: Cost savings, Flexibility, Open hybrid cloud, Red Hat Cloud, Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite beta, Red Hat JBoss BRMS, Red Hat JBoss Middleware
