IBM Business Process Manager V8.5.6 improves quality of service, delivers new federation and mobile capabilities and IBM Business Monitor V8.5.6 supports new operating environments.


IBM Business Process Manager (IBM BPM) V8.5.6 is an update to the comprehensive and consumable IBM BPM platform that provides visibility and management of your business processes.


New features built into IBM BPM V8.5.6 Advanced include:


    • Improved IBM Enterprise Content Management (ECM) integrations that enable up-sell scenarios for both ECM and IBM BPM product teams.

    • New APIs that provide the ability to link cases to obtain a 360 degree view of a case.


    • An IBM PureApplication System pattern configuration that is optimised to help accelerate the setup and management of complex, highly available, business process environments.



The pattern configuration was previously delivered under the separate IBM BPM Pattern program. Starting with this release, the pattern configuration is available for download to customers entitled for this edition.
