Getting Started with AMX BPM

Note:

This Question's info is depreciating and is presented here for Historical reasons.  Please refer to the better supportted wiki page, https://legacycommunity.tibco.com/wiki/getting-started-tibco-activematrix-bpm.


I've been asked by a new customer to point them in the right direction with AMX BPM.  Here is what I think:

 

If you can't wait to get your hands on the product then start with the tutorials.  In Studio click on Help > TIBCO Business Studio Tutorials.

 

Now that you've satisfied your need for immediate gratification I STRONGLY suggest you read the documentation.  I didn't do this until I had been using the product for a year.  I had to fly to Singapore from Atlanta (a 22 hour trip).  I was bored so I read the documentation and it's amazing what I learned!  So... don't wait!  There is a ton of good info in the docs!!!!  Read them now and you'll learn the right way to do things :-)  All https://docs.tibco.com/products/tibco-activematrix-bpm-2-1-0 are available on https://docs.tibco.com.  It's important to understand the doc structure as the docs are in a couple folders.

  • Business Process Management
    • BPM in the Enterprise
      • TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM
    • Business Rules
      • TIBCO ActiveMatrix Decisions (the run-time side)
      • TIBCO Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-In (design time)
    • Process Modeling
      • TIBCO Business Studio - BPM Edition
      • TIBCO Business Studio for Analysts

 

Here is the order I would suggest for reading the docs:

 

Check out the http://developer.tibco.com/business_studio/default.jsp section on http://developer.tibco.com.  It provides a little more structured introduction.

 

Check out the http://www.tibco.com/company/events/webinars/default.jsp

 

And finally don't forget to explore the https://www.tibcommunity.com/community/products/bpm/activematrix community on TIBCOmmunity.  And make sure you contribute!!!!!!
