Colosa‘s ProcessMaker BPM and workflow suite is continuing to evolve. This week, the company pushed out major enterprise feature updates for the platforms, which represent the leading workflow solution with roots in the open source ecosystem.
The feature enhancements come in the form of plugins that integrate into existing ProcessMaker installations, meaning that upgrades to the product itself are not necessary to use the new software. The plugins include the following: Enterprise Search, Case Archive and Restore, SLA Manager, Business Rules Engine and an integration with New Relic Performance Dashboards.
The plugins do what their names imply: Provide better search functionality, archive (and restore) information and so on. Colosa seems to be placing the greatest emphasis on the Business Rules Engine plugin, which it describes as “a significant new plugin for ProcessMaker that allows companies to develop business rules outside of their processes, making it much easier to develop and maintain complex business logic. This level of abstraction allows companies to assign business rule maintenance tasks to an analyst that only needs to understand the logic of the business rules and does not need to have a deep understanding of the entire business process.”
The latest updates to the ProcessMaker suite, which is available in three different tiers with varying levels of pricing and functionality, follow new functionality and performance improvements to the 2.5 version of the software that appeared last spring. Colosa has also established a channel presence around ProcessMaker by reaching out to partners including OSSCube to collaborate on enterprise software integration.
