In today's fast-paced business landscape, where organizations need to swiftly adapt to market changes and customer demands, having robust and modern business automation solutions is crucial. However, developers often face challenges creating robust decision-automation solutions using modern technologies.

IBM BAMOE 8, built on top of jBPM, Drools, and Kogito, brought it with all the greatness of over 10 years of experience. This knowledge, collaboratively built and hardened over the years, resulted in a new phase of IBM's open-source automation solutions.

Introducing IBM Business Automation Manager Open Editions 9.0: exciting new features, enhanced security, a flexible architectural solution, and cloud-core technologies.

IBM BAMOE 9.0 release empowers developers and cross-team collaboration like never before. Here are some highlights:
