Workflow processes are automated each and every day. Some are simple, while others are long and complex. How well a workflow process is automated can depend on the technology used. Many of the existing BPM workflow products deployed in companies around the world are based on the office automation technology that existed at the time. While there may be nothing wrong with the older technology, typical limitations include workflow processing speed, application connectivity, user functionality, and program code maintainability. This explains why so many process improvement projects struggle. When faced with the functional limitations of their existing workflow process automation technology, they can only do so much.
Workflow Process Automation Limitations
Workflow technology capabilities and limitations differ across products, product versions, operating systems and programming languages. Your workflow process automation technology may be limiting your company’s performance if it does not support:
- Evaluation of complex expressions
- Workflow pre-processing for path optimization
- Updates to workflow design at runtime
- Multi-core processing / parallel processing
- SaaS / cloud deployment
- Drag & Drop graphic process design
Before cDevWorkflow, our services organization automated many processes for many business verticals using various third-party workflow packages. After years of running into limitations similar to those sited above, we decided to harness our experience and build the next generation BPM workflow product we were looking for.
Workflow Process HTML5 Technology Advancements
When it comes to the internet and web applications, HTML5 is the future. There are many advanced browser features that can be utilized with HTML5, especially with its enhanced graphical design elements. The cDevWorkflow process designer uses HTML5 to provide the latest thin-client graphical interface functionality for modern day browsers. However, in the event that you are using an older browser the system will still enable SVG rendering.
Workflow Process .Net 4.0+ Technology Enhancements
Meanwhile, .Net framework 4.0+ offers new coding functionality that can be used to enhance application performance algorithms and scalability.
The Future of Workflow Process Automation Technology Starts With Innovation
Our product history details a continual effort to implement the best technology suited for each workflow feature. HTML5 and .Net framework 4.0+ are among latest programming tools we have exploited to create the powerful workflow process automation features of our workflow engine. The future of workflow process automation technology starts with the application of proven tools in new and exciting ways. cDevWorkflow’s innovative approach to meeting the workflow process demands of today and tomorrow is driving the next generation of workflow process technology solutions.
