Main goal of the course is an introduction to essentials of Business Process Management (BPM) and Service-oriented Architecture. BPM is a complex discipline on the edge of Management and Information System development. Students will get familiar with most important concepts of BPM and related BPMS platforms including most recent standards for process modeling (BPMN 2.0), process execution, business rules and human interaction with processes. Both open-source and commercial BPMS are presented and utilized for team projects during the course (IBM BPM, jBPM, Bonita, BizAgi BPM etc.). Important part of the course is a comprehensive team project, where students practice their acquired knowledge.
