Alfresco Process Services powered by Activiti

Alfresco has rebranded their product names. Activiti for Enterprise BPM is now called Alfresco Process Services powered by Activiti. The name Activiti still exists but now it just covers the BPM part for Tech enthusiasts (not Enterprise). Because our solution strictly uses the REST API, it will work with both versions. Therefore and also for simplicity (shorter name than “Alfresco Process Services powered by Activiti”), we're still using the name Activiti furthermore on this page.


Run Activiti Workflows within SAP Fiori

Our solution connexas4fiori enables to run Alfresco Business Process Services (BPM) within the modern look and feel of the SAP Fiori Launchpad. This also includes responsive design which SAP Fiori was made for. No matter whether on a mobile device, on a tablet or even on a desktop PC, the layout will be adapted without any loss of functionalty. With this behavior the most possible user experience can be provided. Furthermore, the user stays in his familiar world of SAP (Fiori Launchpad) where he is able to run the workflow and to execute his tasks without knowing the precense of Activiti (Alfresco Business Process Services) in the background. Based on customer needs, additional data from the connected SAP system can influence the workflow process.

How it works

connexas4fiori is installed as HTML5 application wihtin the SAP HANA Cloud platform and registered to be used with the SAP Fiori Launchpad. Having that, the new App can be published and will be available in the Fiori Launchpad of the user. From now, the user is able to manage his tasks from Activiti in SAP Fiori. The business logic of the process model still remains in Activiti but our solution is able to enrich task data by any information of the on-premise SAP system that is connected to the SAP HANA Cloud Platform as well. For example: We can provide all available 'Cost Center' in a dropdown list based on a task criteria like an entered user name.

Demo Video

This short video gives an overview of the product. It also demonstrates how tasks can be even completed through SAP Fiori. After a new task has been created in the Activiti UI, we switch to SAP Fiori and show how it looks like on a mobile device. The task is claimed by the current user, then it is viewed and some fields are filled to be able to submit the task. Once submitted, there is now another task in "My Tasks" to review the entries. Finally, the review task can be completed.
