The participants were, from left to […]

This training is being hosted at Hotel Howard Johnson, from May 16th to 20th. The training focuses on recently releases ProcessMaker v 2.0, which includes many new and exciting features, such […]
Most organizations who are utilizing ProcessMaker to manage their workflow take advantage of the Document Management System (DMS) to upload input documents and pass them along with the case it belongs to. But did you know that if your input document happens to be an image or group of images, then you can embed those […]
If you’re the person in charge of a ProcessMaker server, you must ensure a backup and recovery strategy is in place to protect existing information in case of data loss. In this article we will provide a basic backup plan, intended to be configured on a Linux server, combining tar, crontab, and mysqldump utilities. For […]
It’s been almost 50 days since the last stable release. But I think waiting for this one was worth it. One of the much awaited features is related to the ability to customize the Subject field in email notifications (check this post in the forum). Well, good news (drum roll please): it’s finally available! This […]
English is the default ProcessMaker’s language. But if your users are using a different one and your processes are not designed to be run in English, it’s not easy to always remember to choose the appropriate one in the Language drop-down every time you log in.

This past Thursday I attended a session at the the Gartner BPM Summit in Baltimore entitled “The Great Case Management Debate.” The session was moderated by Gartner Research VP Toby Bell with participation by two other Gartner VPs: Janelle Hill and Kimberly Harris-Ferrante.

And, as any college graduate knows, the bible of better technique is Strunk & White’s Elements of Style. Bruce gets this (and has positioned his book to become the Elements of Style of BPMN), and after 12 hours in his course I can understand why he doesn’t seem so interested in the BPM Suite itself. The fact is that the BPM Suite tends to work just fine whether it is ProcessMaker, Pega, IBM, Appian, or another. The problem is much deeper and needs to be solved in a much less automated way. The problem is the “style.” This problem needs to be solved through better education and better teachers.

Adverse economic conditions have also brought to fore the significance of operational transparency, control and auditability, largely due to the cost-containment measures adopted by companies
