Process modelling, including related techniques and technologies are a key part in making SOA a reality for many organisations. One of the main reasons for this is the separation of the business process from the underlying implementation. Accurate modeling of business processes combined with the appropriate tools to automate these models can significantly enhance the design and implementation of a part of your business. JUMPCO has been using IBM’s WebSphere BPM stack to accomplish this for our clients for several years now. We are also following open-source initiatives in this area.
