Blueworks Live lets employees improve simple processes like new marketing promotional campaigns, employee on-boarding and sales quote approvals while gaining visibility, understanding, insight and control. Users can interact with colleagues and collaborate through a private work stream and follow any updates to roles, processes and more, which are updated in a Facebook-like stream view. Meanwhile, managers and team members can see the status of works in progress through built-in dashboards and reports.
Along with unveiling its plans for Blueworks Live, IBM added a new technology to its Business Rules Management System, called WebSphere Decision Server, a new decision management software. Combining Business Rules Management with WebSphere Decision Server, organizations can detect and react to data patterns as they happen and make decisions based on policy, best practices or regulatory requirements.
Additionally, IBM added WebSphere Lombardi Edition to its BPM suite, a new tool that enables building and managing process applications with less time, cost and risk in a unified platform. The design lets processes owners and business users update and improve their business processes. WebSphere Lombardi Edition adds visibility that lets users and solution providers understand process bottlenecks and inefficiencies so they can be streamlined. IBM WebSphere Lombardi Edition is the fruit of IBM's December 2009 acquisition of Lombardi, a BPM software maker.
