IBM WebSphere Business Modeler V7: Process Mapping, Simulation and Analysis

This course teaches students how to use business process management (BPM) practices while using the powerful features and capabilities of IBM WebSphere Business Modeler V7.

WebSphere Business Modeler can provide a comprehensive view of the processes that underlie how companies do business. Organizations can use WebSphere Business Modeler, along with business process analysis methods, to support process improvement by gaining an understanding of how their processes work.

In this course, students receive intensive training in business process modeling and analysis by using simulation results, while also experiencing the capabilities of WebSphere Business Modeler’s advanced features. Students explore business process management scoping and methodology and learn how to set project standards. The course also focuses on the concepts and procedures involved in modifying and customizing business process models based on modeling modes. Using these concepts, students participate in interactive discussions on solution modeling, and they build their own models based on a business scenario. Other topics covered in this course include creating process models using the Swimlane editor, project versioning using Rational ClearCase, and performing collaboration by using WebSphere Business Compass with Business Space powered by WebSphere. æ

Hands-on lab exercises enable students to gather project requirements and compare simulation results. The labs also give students the opportunity to create, analyze, report, and update business process models by using Business Process Management Notation (BPMN), importing data from other tools like Microsoft Visio, linking requirements with Rational RequisitePro, and reviewing process models on WebSphere Business Compass.
