Hey folks!! let we discuss about the emerging IBM BPM’s parent architecture ( Mention Parent nothing but IBM BPM take over the main core from Team works).
The left hand side figure clearly illustrating the main aimed of Team works, how it is implemented its core technology. between the layers Web Client & Legacy Systems. team works not intended to provide the system of record rather than intended to integrate the legacy systems with cost effective manner. so there is no mean for replacement at all.
The right hand side clearly depicted its core components, team works is leveraging the web client technologies on behalf its own internal view component that is called coaches applicable to human services.
the architecture is de-facto and most famous model was MVC architecture. it components also divide to best fit in each layer in fig. Process Governance is mostly centralized in Business Process Layer, You will have a clear visibility to improve standards of each layer, the view component (coaches) are flexible enough to display the business data most effectively. We have Business Object Model (BOM) which will carry business data from third party system/Legacy Systems. Integration layer is encapsulated with several components to retrieve the data from different third party system. few examples are Java Connectors, Webservices, JDBC) these are the active shields of various other components as well in the model later.
So this is all regarding the basic explanation of how team works is in corporate in basic layer architecture. we will continues our discussion in further topics as well , until then … keep searching 🙂
