BP3 Global provides services and toolkits that support organisations developing process applications. Its flagship Brazos UI product leverages IBM Business Process Manager, building upon and enhancing Coach View controls available in its out-of-the-box UI designer; but it also produces a tool for open source BPM engines (Brazos Open).

In addition to its established BPM practice BP3 also has a growing decision management practice, focused specifically on implementation of IBM’s Operational Decision Management technology, owing to its 2014 acquisition of specialist consulting services provider Modexe.

Brazos UI Toolkit

Brazos is a user interface design toolkit for process application development. It leverages the APIs and patterns from IBM Business Process Manager’s Coach View framework, combined with open source libraries such as the Bootstrap web front-end development framework, Google’s AngularJS JavaScript framework for dynamic views, JQuery (to handle data exchange, provided by IBM BPM’s own integrations), and AJAX services (for large data sets).

The resulting toolkit enhances developer and user experience (compared with the out-of-the-box capabilities afforded by IBM’s standard Coach NG process application development tool), particularly in two areas: firstly, in support for mobile – where Brazos is able to provide a responsive environment, scaling applications across multiple screen sizes from a single code base and exploiting native browser functionality for common interface elements wherever possible; and secondly, in conformance to WCAG 2.0 Level A Guidelines on support for people with disabilities.

The Brazos UI Toolkit also includes a responsive chart library (Brazos Charts), which includes seven base charts with numerous configuration options (all able to be populated using AJAX services).

BP3 describes Brazos as “the toolkit it wishes IBM had developed”, basing it on its consultants’ experience building process applications and developing the company’s BPM methodology in their own projects. BP3 tests Brazos with beta versions of IBM BPM prior to general availability so it can be “upgrade-ready” when new versions of IBM BPM are released.

The toolkit is offered in both Lite and Enterprise editions, both of which ship with a Brazos Examples process app, user guide, and interactive Brazos CSS Generator built using Brazos Coach Views. Both are also fully compatible with Brazos Portal (see below):
