“IoTBPM Server” is a Business Process Management Engine for IoT Device Orchestration.
When IoT meets BPM – The IoTBPM Server documentation will help you understand exactly what IoTBPM Server is and how it is relevant to IoT Device Orchestration and IoT Device Ontology (AI-IoT Device awareness, state of being, knowledge of real-world objects, situations and abstract concepts).
In the context of IoT Devices when we say BPM, all we mean is “a sequence of tasks that allows us to achieve a goal.” In IoT BPM orchestrated each task-goal can be carried out by a different IoT Device, enterprise RESTful server, human task, or any other integrated service.
The IoTBPM Server ensures that once started, the BPM is carried out fully and retries any steps in case of failures. The IoTBPM Server maintains an audit log, so that the progress of BPM can be monitored. The IoTBPM Server is fault tolerant and scales seamlessly to handle growing transaction volumes.
IoTBPM Server Introduction A company’s end-to-end IoT BPM workflow will almost always span more than one IoT Device or enterprise servers. These IoT Device and Services Integration into the enterprise can be mission critical to the business and is rarely modeled and monitored. Often, the message flow of events through different IoT Devices is expressed only implicitly in code.
These cross-microservice workflows can be a company’s core operation drivers, often they are rarely modeled and monitored; and the flow of events through different IoT Devices is usually expressed only in low-level Interface Flow specifications and rarely depict Business Enterprise goals.
IoTBPM Server IoT Device solution IoT Devices architectures have become increasingly popular in recent years for providing new functionality and services; but, the very principles that make IoT Devices architectures so appealing; (i.e., loose coupling, independent deployment, and new data points) also present significant challenges.
A core point of IoT Devices architecture is that each IoT Device is responsible for one and only one business capability. Each IoT Device exists to contribute to a broader workflow. The company goal succeeds only when the end-to-end workflow is successful, so ensuring workflow quality is critical. In an IoT Devices architecture, where each IoT Device is responsible for only one carefully-scoped business capability, who’s responsible for the end-to-end workflow?
By default, no one. In fact, the end-to-end workflow might not even be formally documented within the company, with the flow of events from IoT Device to enterprise service expressed only implicitly in code. Many IoT Devices architectures rely on a pure choreography pattern for communication, where IoT Devices collaborate by publishing events to and consuming events from a messaging platform without a central controller.
IoTBPM Server workflow solution IoTBPM Server is a workflow engine that manages your end-to-end IoT Device business processes solution. It monitors the state of activities in a workflow and determines the status of each BPM activity according to defined processes.
IoTBPM Server provides high throughput, low latency, and horizontal scalability. The IoTBPM Server does not require a central database component and instead leverages event sourcing, meaning that all changes to a workflow’s state are captured as events and stored. In the IoTBPM Server this state is written directly to the filesystem on the server where the IoTBPM Server is running, and the current state of a workflow can be derived from the events stored on the server.
IoTBPM Server uses a client / server messaging model. The IoTBPM Server is a remote engine that runs in its own program space on a Java Virtual Machine. Either in the cloud or on your own servers.
IoTBPM Server is an open-source BPM workflow engine for IoT Devices orchestration that provides:
- Visibility into the state of a company’s end-to-end IoT BPM workflows.
- BPM Orchestration based on the current state of a BPM; IoTBPM Server publishes “commands” as events that can be consumed by one or more IoT Devices, ensuring that BPMs progress according to their definition.
- Monitoring for timeouts or other BPM errors with the ability to path, such as stateful retries or escalation to teams that can resolve an issue manually.
IoTBPM Server was designed to operate at a very large scale and to achieve this, it provides:
- Horizontal scalability and no dependence on an external database; IoTBPM Server writes data directly to the filesystem on the same servers where it’s deployed. IoTBPM Server makes it simple to distribute processing across a cluster of machines to deliver high throughput.
- A message-driven architecture where all BPM-relevant events are written to an append-only log, providing an audit trail and a history of the state of a BPM.
- A publish interaction model, which enables IoT Devices that connect to IoTBPM Server to maintain a high degree of control and autonomy, including control over BPM sessions. These properties make IoTBPM Server resilient, scalable, and reactive.
- Visual BPMs modeled in ISO-standard BPMN 2.0 so that technical and nontechnical stakeholders can collaborate on BPM design in a widely-used modeling language.
- A language-agnostic client model, making it possible to build an IoTBPM Server client in just about any programming language that an organization uses to build IoT Devices.
- Operational ease-of-use IoTBPM Server does not require a cluster coordinator. Because all nodes in an IoTBPM Server cluster are equal, it’s easy to scale, and it plays nicely with modern resource managers and container orchestrators.
The power of the IoT (Internet of Things) device increases greatly when business process (jBPM) can use them to provide information about our real-world as well as execute IoT devices as part of our business process. The jBPM-BPMN modular allow us to define both the business processes and IoT devices behavior at the same time using one diagram. With Arduino Tron adding Drools-jBPM to IoT, we make the IoT devices “smart”. Moving beyond just collecting IoT data and transitioning, to leveraging the new wealth of IoT data, to improving the SMART decision making is the key. The Executive Order Arduino Tron AI-IoTBPMServer will help these IoT devices, environments, and products to self-monitor, self-diagnose and eventually, self-direct.
The IoTBPM Server Orchestration A company’s end-to-end IoT BPM workflow will almost always span more than one IoT device or enterprise servers. These IoT device and enterprise services integration can be mission critical to the business and is rarely modeled and monitored. These cross-microservice workflows can be a company’s core operation drivers, often they are rarely modeled and monitored, and the flow of events through different IoT devices is usually expressed only in low-level Interface flow specifications and rarely depict business enterprise goals and workflow diagrams.
The IoTBPM Server provides the solution with the benefits of loose coupling IoT Devices architecture while ensuring robust end-to-end business enterprise BPM workflows success. IoTBPM Server can work alongside the components you already use in your event-driven architecture without requiring you to replace or remove any existing systems to provide workflow visibility.
With the IoTBPM Server platform, we go beyond loose coupling IoT Devices architecture with Drools providing AI to our IoT Device BPM workflow. The IoTBPM Server uses the concepts of Drools AI applied to the BPM workflow to make smarter decisions by our IoT Devices. The definition of AI (Artificial Intelligence) is the intelligence exhibited by machines or software. IoTBPM Server is enabling what have previously been “dumb” devices to add new layers of functionality and access creating the basis for smart homes, smart cars, and smart manufacturing. It’s not just about automatically turning on an air conditioner. The data collected, combined with IoTBPM Server makes life easier with intelligent automation, predictive analytics, and proactive intervention.
