  Nintex WEBCON BPS
Modifying a live application

Cancel/restart your live workflows or let them finish the old way

InstantChange™ – your in-flight workflows adapt immediately

Application lifecycle management

Workflow/forms are versioned but not moved between environments; data is not part of your application and changes to data will break it

The entire application – workflow, forms, reports, dashboards, data schema, connections to external data – can be packaged and deployed (and updated) from development to test to production

On-premises & Cloud
Three separate and incompatible offerings

One platform that runs on-premises, cloud IaaS, and SaaS offering

Migration and upgrades

Manual with some automated guidance. Not all features migrate. Audit trail and current running status must be discarded

Everything migrates, in every direction, with current status and audit trail preserved and intact

Process mapping
Separate product

Integrated with workflow and forms and report and dashboard designer

Workflow designer
Separate product

Integrated with process mapping and forms and report and dashboard designer

Analytics

Workflow designer must add extra measurement steps to workflow

Built into each workflow step

Application data

Must be modeled somewhere else (SharePoint, SQL) and managed independently of your application

Data is part of your application and is deployed/updated as your application evolves

Power user options

Power users use the same tools as professionals, which are definitely not “workflow for everyone”

Designer Desk provides non-professionals with an easy way to create prototypes professionals can extend and deploy to product

Release. Review. Revise. Repeat. Evolve.

An application isn’t really a one-time deliverable – it’ll need to be regularly adapted and improved in collaboration with users and stakeholders. That can’t happen unless the cost of change is low, and that applies to both creating changes and gracefully deploying them.

Say goodbye to fragile dependencies.

When you map a process, the workflow is already finished. So are the forms. When you change a field, the forms, the reports, the data – they’ve already adapted. When you define a connection, you can reuse it over and over again. When you consider that many platforms expect your application to be a series of strings of dependencies upon dependencies, rock-solid solutions are a welcome change.

“Citizen development” is a nice idea – but it’s citizen-assisted development that actually works.

Business users have day jobs. The work it takes to go beyond a quick tactical app and an enterprise-grade solution isn’t trivial. Applications that work by gluing together assets spread all over the company are harder to assemble than one might think. Perhaps it’s better to cooperate with professionals than bypass them. Have everyone participate in a solution, with different tools for different roles – that work together: users can create prototype examples that professionals quickly evolve into true solutions.

WEBCON BPS apps can run for seconds, months, or years. Migrate, and even modify them, and they keep on running.

No process left behind when you make a change

InstantChange™ means application updates take effect everywhere, right away, even on workflows in flight. No disruption, no restarting, no grandfathering.

The end of fragile applications

A solution with many moving parts in many different places is hard to deploy & maintain but really easy to break. A WEBCON app is built, deployed, updated, and secured as a set.

Professionals and stakeholders working together

Don’t abdicate, collaborate. Let users show designers what they want the easiest way possible; you can finish what they started, without compromise.

Deployment lifecycle support

Deployment isn’t an afterthought to WEBCON – it’s part of our DNA. Every part of every application is designed to gracefully deal with dev-test-production stages

Process mapping and workflow diagramming aren’t two separate things

Don’t work hard to make it understandable and again work hard to make it work. Create one thing that does both – and always in sync.

Auditing and analytics without extra effort

WEBCON processes auto-report on themselves. You don’t have to clutter them with extra steps that feed custom logs. It’s extra insight without extra effort.

The end of analysis paralysis

Build and deliver it right away, it doesn’t have to be perfect. Because you can easily – and quickly – improve it. Using real feedback, not imagined requirements.
