Authors: Stephen White,


The purpose of this Redpaper is to provide guidance for the preparation of business process models, developed with the WebSphere Business Modeler, which will ultimately be monitored by the WebSphere Business Monitor. The model preparation, including business measure development, and the configuration of monitoring, including dashboard design, is the main focus of this paper. There are other resources from IBM for guidance on general process modeling, deployment, and execution.

By use of examples to illustrate the concepts of continuous improvement management, this Redpaper presents the mechanisms for an organization to:

- Model and simulate a business process.
- Define business measures.
- Monitor the application to observe key performance indicators.

Throughout the paper best practices are highlighted to provide additional guidance for using WebSphere Business Monitor and WebSphere Business Modeler and for optimizing the value of the developed solutions. This paper will evolve and be updated as more best practices are identified..
