Flowable again clinched Best in Show at this year’s bpmNEXT, beating off fierce competition from other leading BPM and Intelligent Automation vendors, including Appian, Bonitasoft, Fujitsu, IBM, Kissflow, Red Hat, SAP and Trisotech.

In the conference’s own words, bpmNEXT has consistently been the defining launch pad for the ideas and innovations surrounding technology-led business process innovation. Presentations are not case studies of past successes, but vision statements on where we are going next.

In our presentation, “The Case of the Intentional Process”, we described and demonstrated how using standard-based Case Management to manage process-driven chatbots had enabled our clients to provide intention-sensitive customer engagement.  In simple words, our chatbots could be smarter because they “knew” when they were appropriate for the user’s needs.

This year’s result follows on from winning Best in Show last year, which in turn built on our first attendance at the conference in 2017 that won us the Most Promising award. For us, the focus of the conference on people deep into BPM and Intelligent Automation makes the awards even more meaningful. It’s not about how good is your marketing, it’s about how innovative is your BPM technology.

A video of the presentation can be seen on the Flowable YouTube Channel.

We are pleased to announce that in 2019, Flowable will again participate in bpmNEXT, which is now in its 7th year.

The event which will take place in Santa Barbara, California on April 15 – 17 remains the definitive showcase of the next generation of Business Process Management– covering Advanced Analytics, Blockchain, Decision Management, Digital Transformation, Robotic Process Automation, AI, the Internet of Things, Process Mining, and the next generation of BPMS platforms.

It´s not a typical “how to” conference aimed at BPM newcomers. It is designed specifically for those already chest-deep in BPM and wanting to get in early on the next generation of process innovation technology – touch it, see it, and influence it.

Presentations are not case studies of past successes, but vision statements on where we need to go next. With over 20 leading-edge sessions, including the full gamut of technology spearheading the next wave of process innovation, combined with the “Business of BPM” workshop,  you  get the chance to participate in the future of BPM.

An insight to some of the work at Flowable will be presented in “The Case of the Intentional Process” given by our Chief Product Officer, Paul Holmes-Higgin, and our Chief Technology Officer, Micha Kiener.

We are pleased to announce the release of the Flowable 3.0 product line.

The Flowable products provide a sophisticated set of case and process technologies that can be easily applied to create real solutions to meet the needs of today’s businesses. This release incorporates some major enhancements to core components, and we have increased the version number to 3.0 to reflect this. The full product line includes:

  • FlowableEngage 3.0 for real-time chat with case management
  • FlowableWork 3.0 for full business process and case management, and
  • FlowableCore 3.0 for embedded case, decision and process engines.

All the improvements in Flowable Core 3.0 are available in all the products, and all enhancements in Flowable Work 3.0 are available within Flowable Engage.

Flowable Core 3.0 Enhancements
We have made a number of significant improvements to some of the key components of Flowable Core, including a new highly scalable and performant CMMN 1.1 execution engine. This provides a much wider coverage of CMMN capabilities in addition to many extensions that make defining cases easier. The BPMN engine also has some major improvements, including extended auditing of user task events and sequence flows, optimized active instance query performance, support for DMN 1.2, and extended process migration services.

Flowable Work 3.0 Enhancements
The user interface for Flowable Work has been completely rewritten, providing the latest browser technology for dynamic user interaction, customization and extension. The UI technology is now based on ReactJS, a widely used, stable and growing web framework. We took this opportunity to add new features, such as visual case status diagrams. We have also integrated and enhanced our document management and analytics reporting services. Documents and files with metadata can be captured and stored with custom content models. Heatmaps, pie charts and bar graphs can display process and case performance data from historic and active work. There are new context-sensitive services to help the creation of applications, including Templates for content in messages and document generation, plus Actions for defining behavior that is exposed to the user whatever interface is used – web app or mobile app. All the new services are available in the headless Flowable Platform edition of Flowable Work.

Flowable Engage 3.0 Enhancements
The WhatsApp Business API is now supported, joining an extended WeChat integration and other popular chat apps. A new conversation type, Desk, has been introduced that allows chats to be managed through a team support model. With this, a group of users can be assigned to a Desk chat where any incoming chat ticket can be assigned to a team member to work with. This can also be integrated with the new Chatbot handover capability that allows an automated chatbot to pass a conversation over to another user or team. Rich media messages and much enhanced conversational process definitions broaden the types of interaction that can be achieved over chat.

Flowable Control 3.0, Flowable Design 3.0 and Flowable Forms 3.0 Enhancements
As part of the main products, we have also made many enhancements to the supporting applications. Flowable Control 3.0 adds full visibility and control of all the engines for system administrators to both monitor and fix any issues that can arise in live systems. Resolving unexpected failures of external systems or misassigned tasks in production systems are examples. Flowable Design 3.0 includes a completely new attribute management panel, many usability enhancements, and a new form debugger. Flowable Forms 3.0 provides new forms components and extended developer tools for working live with forms.
