Rules management Stakeholders in IT and business can define and change rules that drive processes “on the fly” without any development work.
Business console Manage business processes and tasks with role-based monitoring and social guidance. A customizable inbox enables you to view, act and collaborate on all assigned tasks. A recommendation engine for experts helps guide you in completing tasks faster and more effectively. Business Console is available as a web and mobile application.
Closed loop analytics Dashboards in the business console provide visualizations for process and stage intrinsics that enable users to define KPIs and take immediate actions based on alerts from process milestones, goals and associated SLAs. Out-of-the-box actions (such as an escalation process) can be kicked off to address violations or breaches and can direct the users to the business console to collaborate on root-cause analysis.

Task & team management Improve how people interact with your processes via task management and collaboration capabilities.
