Red Hat, global provider of open source solutions, announced the launch of Red Hat Process Automation Manager 7. It is a comprehensive, cloud-native platform for developing business automation services and process-centric applications across hybrid cloud environments.
Digital transformation can place new demands on both business and IT to deliver greater efficiency and agility throughout the application lifecycle. Process Automation Manager is the next generation of Red Hat’s business process management (BPM) offering, Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite. This enables organizations to streamline, automate, measure and continuously improve business operations.
It aims to foster closer collaboration between IT and business. It enables business users to directly participate in creating new applications using business-friendly concepts. At the same time, it retains the governance and oversight required by IT for application scalability and security.
Process Automation Manager provides both business and IT users with a low-code solution. This can reduce the time required to build applications that automate business processes, enforce business policies and make business decisions.
- Cloud-native application development: With Process Automation Manager 7, Red Hat is expanding its business process automation capabilities. They are native to Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, a comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform. Customers can quickly and cost-effectively develop, test and deploy intelligent, cloud-native applications. They automate business decisions and processes as containerized microservices spanning hybrid cloud environments.
- Dynamic case management: New dynamic case management capabilities support dynamic and ad-hoc workflows that are otherwise difficult or impossible to represent in a traditional process model, which helps customers collaborate more easily and better manage unstructured processes. In scenarios such as fraud detection and investigation, Process Automation Manager can enhance process automation efforts with better visualization and organization of workflow goals, results, collaboration, and associated content.
- Low-code user experience: Process Automation Manager now includes new application development tools for creating rich, device-independent user interfaces as part of a simplified and more intuitive experience for building process-driven applications.
Process Automation Manager includes Red Hat Decision Manager. This is a decision management platform that simplifies the development and deployment of rule-based applications and services. It can also be used as business resource planner based on the OptaPlanner community project.
