Expanding into New Markets

VPay wanted to develop a new solution in a new market for mobile-friendly claims payment approvals to provide more payment options and faster payments. Apex brought this vision to life in just a couple of weeks with IBM BAW and an Envisioning project, leading to customers signing up for the new offering based on the prototype demonstration.

There are many companies working on older versions of IBM BPM and BAW.

Apex has a wealth of experience helping existing BPM/BAW customers upgrade and seamlessly migrate their data. From simple upgrades to moving off a mainframe or on to a cloud environment, we have developed techniques and tools for helping BPM customers update and migrate.

Case Study

Automated Migration Utility

A client needed a POC to establish how to migrate in-flight process instances while moving their BAW installation from Oracle to SQLServer. Apex developed an innovative approach to instance-by-instance migration that supported the process architecture in use, and developed a small application to automate the migration activities.

No Code Forms for Faster Implementation

At First Horizon, Apex built a business friendly forms editing capability on top of IBM BAW for the Loan Operations team. This enabled business users to create and maintain the user interfaces for over 600 unique process steps across over 100 loan operations processes.

Specialized Integrations

Extend the reach of IBM BAW with a 'micro app' to achieve certain types of integration quickly and easily. For example, integration with a system that uses a Webhook pattern (like Docusign) can be quickly achieved with a micro-app in the cloud to handle the callback.

Case Study

Excel Integration for Engineering Quotes

Aptiv’s engineering change process includes complex cost estimation spreadsheets driven from data in their Oracle system of record. Apex built a micro app that gathers the data, fills in the spreadsheet and adds it to the process instance for review and approval.

Cloud/Container Strategy

Ready for Containers and Microservices?

Workflow Process Service is an innovative packaging of the core BAW process engine in a containerized form. This opens the door to moving from a monolithic BAW deployment to a distributed, containerized deployment.
