Thanks to Sandy Kemsley for the kind coverage of our demonstration:

Outpatient care example with coordination of resources (rooms, labs) and people (doctors, patients), BPMN may not be best way to model and coordinate resources since can end up as a single-task anti-pattern. Target UI on tablet, using their Brazos tools with responsive UI, but can be used on desktop or phone. Patient list allows provider to manage high-level state of waiting versus in progress by assigning room, then add substates such as “Chaperone Required”, immediate updates regardless of platform used. Patient and doctor notifications can be initiated from action menu. A beautiful UI implementation of a fairly simple state management application built on IBM BPM, although the infrastructure is there to tie in events and data from other systems.

It was fun to run through the ignite presentation and demo. The key element is that sometimes your Business Process solutions need an app that cuts across processes to provide a role or user with coordinating capabilities.  This was just such an app. 

There’s something great about building an app that will run on any device, along with fun features like pinging your Apple Watch with notifications.  Our team does a great job of designing these solutions, I just had the pleasure of showing it off.  Brazos is what makes it easy, and it remains in my view the gold standard for BPM user interface (I am biased of course).

Looking forward to 2017!

Celebrated the following morning by walking over to Handlebar Coffee for a great Latte. They still roast the old fashioned way, in small batches, with a Probat.  For a process guy, this is the kind of place you have to respect – retail and production in one room.
