Reinventing Process Automation for the Digital Enterprise

Any company today needs to think like a software company — placing technology at the heart of their organization. Process automation and emerging technologies like Robotic Process Automation (RPA), artificial intelligence, microservices and the general move to the cloud provide tremendous new opportunities for automating operations and transforming your business.

To truly realize this opportunity, companies are now looking for new approaches to achieve full end-to-end automation and orchestrate all relevant aspect of a process, be it human or system. Successful organizations also bridge the automation divide between business and IT and support agile collaboration that includes business stakeholders, citizen developers as well as professional developers. What they need is a highly flexible, infinitely scalable process automation platform that runs on any cloud, public, private or hybrid.

Camunda is driving this sea change with a new vision for process automation — enabling every enterprise to automate any process, anywhere.

Process Migration 201: Tips, Tricks, and Techniques

If your organization relies on BPM and your process definitions are considered to have “long running” process instances (perhaps due to user tasks etc.), then there comes a time when your organization needs to define their process instance migration strategy. This talk will show you how to define your migration strategy as a business process and to use BPMN to help control different scenarios during your custom migration.

Putting it all together: Process Automation, Automated Testing and CI/CD

Now 15 years into our business process automation journey and 3 workflow engines later we’re really starting to benefit from efficiency in our delivery of workflow through automated unit and component testing, CI/CD pipelines, and operational monitoring and metrics. We will take you through our journey and describe our current technology stack that builds on the Camunda Enterprise platform and open source utilities to deliver end-to-end automation for our business.

Authentication, Authorization and beyond – Camunda Security 101

When users ask us for best practices and guidance around security concepts and Camunda BPM, they often get the consultant’s most favorite answer: it depends! And indeed, due to the great flexibility of the product and the many architecture options, it is hard to come up with a generic solution that fits for all scenarios. In this talk, I will show you the foundational building blocks that you need to consider and how they play together. I’ll use live coding examples to illustrate how to solve common problems as well, so that after the session you will be able to come up with your own security architecture that suits exactly your needs.

Unlocking the Power of Custom Tooling Through Camunda Resources

In this session, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (OTPP) will share how they built a custom workflow visualization and dependency application leveraging Camunda resources to improve the experience for the BPMN development team. Our flows make considerable use of sub-flows which can result in lost time checking out BPMN source to navigate between the flows and was opaque to non-technical users. It was also challenging to differentiate which sub-processes were being reused in other processes. With the use of Camunda’s REST APIs and the bpmn-js library, OTPP designed a custom application called the Workflow Viewer. The Workflow Viewer provides a visual representation of the workflows to help navigate and analyze their 130+ business processes. It is now being used for a variety of purposes by developers, testers, and business analysts etc.

Driving Continuous Improvement using Process Metrics

Process optimization is more relevant than ever before. Business-friendly reporting and the ability to share process insights across the organization in real-time allows teams to continuously monitor and improve processes. Unfortunately, many teams still don’t have access to real-time process information and struggle to answer simple process questions and KPIs.

Automating 5 Billion+ Process Node Executions a Month with Camunda: 24 Hour Fitness

With all our orchestration, transformation and business rules buried in java code it was becoming time-consuming to understand how our systems operated, bring new hires up to speed and answer use case questions. Due to the complexity of our business rules and the general mistakes that naturally take place in human communication, it was time-consuming and error-prone to translate information from the product owners to developers and vice versa. 24 Hour Fitness has now been using Camunda to solve this problem for 5 years and is now pushing over 4.7 Billion FNI and 2.2 Billion EDE a month. In this short talk, I will discuss how we accomplished this.
