Business process automation with a workflow engine or BPM suite has existed for decades. However, using the data streaming platform Apache Kafka as the backbone of a workflow engine provides better scalability, higher availability, and simplified architecture.

This article discusses my talk at JPoint in Moscow about: “Microservices, Containers, Docker and a Cloud-Native Architecture in the Middleware World”.
An intelligent business process (iBPM, iBPMS) combines big data, analytics and business process management (BPM) – including case management! This post implements a use case using big data / fast data analytics with TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM, BusinessWorks, StreamBase, Spotfire and Tibbr.

I have spotted a really great article about comparing prices of open source and proprietary products: “What is the TCO difference between WebSphere and JBoss?”. The interesting aspect is, that this article is written by an IBM-biased company (Prolifics). Usually, only open source vendors write such comparisons. I really like this article, seriously!
