muSOAing for 6/20/09

Let us focus on BPM for a change. So now the term BPM is now synonymous with orchestration of services. A BPM engine is now a standard SOA offering along with ESB, Registry and Governance Tools.

A BPM offering is similar to a low level process orchestration engine in the sense that it has a design time and a runtime component. The design time component is a visual drag and drop palette that gives the user a view into all the existing services and let’s the user build orchestrations by composing these services that serves to address one of the Business Use Cases such as Order fulfillment or Order Processing.

A BPM tool is tailored for use by Business Analysts. It is a no code zone. It is not an interface for writing new services, that will fall under the domain of a LLPOE (Low Level Process Orchestration Engine).
