This regular post showcases some of the best content about IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) published each quarter on the developerWorks Middleware hub.

Happy New Year from IBM developerWorks Middleware! To start off 2017, we’ve been working on updating content that the developer community still uses, but making sure it applies to current versions of products. For IBM BPM, check out the updated articles about designing and implementing Advanced Integration services in both IBM BPM Advanced V8.5.5 and earlier, and in IBM BPM Advanced V8.5.6 and later versions:

I also updated Top 10 editor’s picks for IBM Business Process Manager to include some new content from 2016.

Here’s a round-up of some of the best new developerWorks content about IBM Business Process Manager from 4th quarter 2016:

  • Set up IBM Business Process Manager with Amazon Web Services: Under the IBM Bring Your Own Software License (BYOSL) policy, you have the freedom to deploy eligible IBM software on a range of public clouds, including Amazon Web Services. IBM is proactively partnering with other cloud infrastructure providers to deliver a best-in-breed experience for organizations that want to take this approach.

  • Transform your business in the cloud with Business Operations Connect: With business processes and business rules, you can transform your operations by gaining efficiency and insight.

This tutorial shows how to create a business process using IBM BPM on Cloud and a decision service using IBM ODM on Cloud and then how to manage those assets as APIs in IBM API Connect.
  • Business Operations Connect learning path on developerWorks Connect to Cloud: In addition to the new article from John Santoro (the previous item), we also added a new learning path for Business Operations Connect to provide learning resources for using IBM BPM and IBM ODM capabilities to support the API economy and transform existing business processes and decisions into the hybrid cloud. The Business Operations Connect learning path includes resources to hone up on APIs, learn how to use IBM Business Operations Connect with your business processes and business rules to support the API economy and transform existing business operations into the hybrid cloud, get started, and extend your knowledge.
