This three-day instructor-led course teaches students how to use the powerful features and capabilities of IBM WebSphere Business Modeler V7, as well as key business process management (BPM) practices, to map, document, and analyze business processes.
WebSphere Business Modeler V7 enables the visualization, documentation, modeling, and analysis of business processes for understanding and process execution. Business Modeler provides a comprehensive view of the processes that underlie how organizations do business, which allows users to document business processes and to improve them through business process analysis.
In this course, students receive intensive training in documenting business processes and conducting analysis with WebSphere Business Modeler V7. The course begins with an overview of Business Modeler and the concept of business processes. Students learn how to document business processes by creating business process diagrams with Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN). Students also learn how to define human tasks and business rules tasks, validate the process model, and apply common modeling patterns.
Hands-on lab exercises include creating process models using the Swimlane editor, project versioning using Rational ClearCase, and performing team collaboration by using WebSphere Business Compass with Business Space powered by WebSphere. Students then apply what they learned, using these concepts and techniques to develop their own models based on a provided business scenario.
