IBM WebSphere Lombardi Edition V7.1 Process Modeling, Operations, Administration


Course Description


Overview

This 5-day instructor-led course teaches core process modeling skills, project development methodology, delivery best practice patterns, and product skills required to install, configure, and manage a WebSphere Lombardi Edition environment. In this course, students use IBM WebSphere Lombardi Edition to create a business process definition (BPD) from business requirements that are identified during process analysis.  The course begins with an overview of BPM and process modeling. Students learn how to make team collaboration more efficient by enabling all team members to use standard process model elements and notation, which makes expressing and interpreting business requirements consistent throughout the BPM life cycle. The course also teaches students how to build an agile and flexible shared process model that can be understood by key business stakeholders, implemented by developers, and adjusted to accommodate process changes. Students learn how to work within the parameters of the BPM life cycle methodology in ways that maximize the functionality of WebSphere Lombardi Edition and project development best practices, such as meeting the target playback goal. The course continues with the architecture, installation, configuration, and management of WebSphere Lombardi Edition. Students examine the architecture of WebSphere Lombardi Edition to provide contextual information for the rest of the course, and then install and configure the product. After learning about configuration, students define and manage user authentication and authorization, and install and deploy snapshots to different environments. Finally, students monitor process execution and system errors using various tools. The course uses an interactive learning environment, with hands-on demonstrations, class activities to reinforce concepts and check understanding, and labs embedded in each of the course units that enable hands-on experience with BPM tasks and skills. This course is designed to be collaborative, and students can work in teams to perform class activities.
