Ovum: On the Radar: Alfresco advances content-driven approach to BPM

Alfresco Activiti is Alfresco’s business process management (BPM) solution aimed at both business and IT users. Its integration with Alfresco One and other enterprise content management (ECM) platforms, and process and data modeling capabilities align with the requirements of use cases involving content-driven process applications.

Key messages

  • “Ease of use” for business users is a core attribute of Alfresco Activiti
  • Adoption of Activiti as a “stand-alone” BPM solution is growing and it is increasingly used as a lightweight BPM solution alongside proprietary (commercial), resource-intensive BPM implementations
  • It can be deployed on-premise or in public or private cloud environments.
  • In the first phase of its development, Alfresco Activiti has evolved into a BPM solution offering substantial capabilities in key areas, such as process and data modeling, collaboration and task management, process monitoring, and multi-tenancy and cloud deployment
