The 'Platformization' of Workflow at Goldman Sachs: A Camunda Day NYC Recap

Written by Mike Winters on , under Use Cases category.
In June 2018, Camunda hosted a Camunda Days New York City event at the Galvanize space in SoHo, our second New York community event in the past 12 months. Members of the Camunda team from our Berlin, Denver, and San Francisco offices traveled to spend time with the local user and customer community and to share updates on Camunda’s product lineup, from Zeebe to Optimize. Headlining the event was an in-depth presentation from Richard Tarling and Randall Graebner of Goldman Sachs, who discussed how the firm has built widely-used internal platforms for both workflows and decisions.

Scripting with DMN inside BPMN

Written by Philipp Ossler on , under Community category.

In Camunda, you can use scripts at different places of a process. For example, inside a Script Task, as an execution/task listener, as a condition expression on a sequence flow or inside an input/output mapping. Usually, the scripts are written in JavaScript, Groovy or JUEL.

Using the FEEL extension, it is also possible to write scripts in FEEL (Friendly Enough Expression Language) which is a part of the DMN specification.

Wildfly Swarm Community Extension 1.0.0 Released

Written by Svetlana Dorokhova on , under Execution category.

Wildfly Swarm is a way to build your Java EE application with just enough of the application server, packaged in one uber-jar. This is usually the way to go, when building microservices architecture, when each service is such kind of Jar, containing the server runtime inside it. For those who want to try it out, the community extension is now available to easily include Camunda Engine and/or Web applications into Wildfly Swarm projects.

In a recent blog post, I described a use case based on facial image recognition to perform an authentication task. In an ideal process, the recognition system either passes or fails the recognition task and the process proceeds via straight through processing to completion. In practice there is a fuzzy boundary between these two outcomes where human judgement via a human task is injected into the process. Now consider the case where say an image of a driver licence is used as a reference image.
