Process Insights with Red Hat Process Automation Manager and Kibana

Red Hat® Process Automation Manager is a platform for developing containerized microservices and applications that automate business decisions and processes. A critical piece of a business process system is having real-time insights into what is happening, and both monitoring KPI metrics and responding to problem trends is an integral part of operations.

In this video, we will take a look at how we can enable integration with Elasticsearch on a Red Hat® OpenShift environment, and how to represent the KPIs in a graphical business-friendly dashboard using Kibana.

Application monitoring in OpenShift 4.3

As enterprises start to adopt their container journey and onboard their applications into the OpenShift Container Platform, application monitoring becomes critical to anticipate problems and discover bottlenecks in a production environment. Application Monitoring is also one of the biggest challenges faced by almost all organizations who are either in the process of or already have migrated their workloads into OpenShift.

The growing adoption of microservices architecture makes monitoring more complex since a large number of applications that are distributed in nature are communicating with each other. What used to be a function or a direct call in a monolithic application is now a network call from one microservice to another. Also, running multiple instances on these microservices as containers adds another layer of complexity.

Starting with OpenShift 4.3, you can use the platform’s monitoring capabilities for your application workloads running on OpenShift. This helps keep the application monitoring centralized. You don’t need to manage an additional monitoring solution as the platform now provides these capabilities.

Achieving the promise of Microservices, one contract at a time

So many organizations are jumping on the Microservices bandwagon. The amount of hype makes the phenomenon nearly impossible to ignore. According to InfoQ, Microservices and their respective frameworks are in the “Late Majority” stage, meaning that even those industries and enterprises which are slow to adopt new tech are using them. That said, many of those same organizations are struggling to attain the promises that have been espoused by companies like Google or Twitter around Microservices.

BPM in a Microservice World: Part 3

This article was originally published on Diabolical Labs.

Many BPM practitioners are used to utilizing a software suite that has some sort of Process Manager component that has control of the transaction as it progresses through activities. The process is generally authored and visualized graphically in BPMN or BPEL. When applying BPM in the microservice world we don’t have that visibility or control.
