Today I am going to be introducing Aquima BPM System and how businesses can benefit from it. Aquima is a rule based business process management (BPM) suite for automating dynamic applications and processes. By reducing the traditional “business / IT” gap, organisations can use Aquima to gain competitive advantage by automating processes that change frequently. Aquima facilitates agile application development, which in turn allows systems to be quickly modified and adapted to changing market conditions.
Benefits of Aquima
The benefits of Aquima include but not limited to the following;
Aquima Studio provides business analysts and developers with a highly intuitive modelling environment. The modelled processes and applications can be executed directly in Aquima Runtime: the model is the application! Aquima is ideal for iterative development processes and improves collaboration between business and IT. So Aquima is not coded but rather uses Artificial Intelligence to automate the design process.
Easy to use
In order to close the traditional gap between business and IT, a tool is required that can be used by analysts, so those responsible for the wishes, requirements and content can develop applications themselves. It is therefore important that the tool is user-friendly. Aquima’s Microsoft Office look and feel is recognisable, intuitive and simple. Applications can be developed and maintained quickly, without the need for knowledge of programming languages.
The way in which interaction with users takes place is separate from the decision logic of an application. Information that an end user enters on the screen can be interpreted immediately through the underlying logic; therefore, the results or interim results and dependencies can directly affect the behaviour of the application.
For example, depending on the user input the system can determine:
- what the subsequent step is;
- what information is required;
- which information/answers can already be derived;
- What may and may not be displayed to the user.
The distinction between user interaction and logic provides maximum flexibility, performance and user-friendliness.
The model is implemented immediately in Aquima via engines that work on the basis of interpretation. This means that Aquima can show why certain derivations, choices and decisions have been made in a transparent manner. Interpretation, therefore, means visibility. Aquima also makes it possible to test, use or see in operation what has been modelled immediately
All components within one environment
Aquima consists of key concepts. Each of these concepts contributes to the functionality of the models, as created with Aquima. These concepts include Communication, Documents, IT systems, Supportive Task and processes.
By reducing the traditional “business / IT” gap, organisations can use Aquima to gain competitive advantage by automating processes that change frequently. Aquima facilitates agile application development, which in turn allows systems to be quickly modify and adapted to changing market conditions. Aquima is being used in the financial, governmental, healthcare, retail, and housing sectors. More information on existing applications is available through various customer cases.
