This course is also available as self-paced virtual (e-learning) course Developing Applications with IBM Business Monitor V7.5 (ZB797G). This option does not require any travel.

In this course, students learn how to develop monitoring applications with IBM Business Monitor while also learning business process management (BPM) techniques and skills.

IBM Business Monitor is a business activity monitoring (BAM) product that supports BPM by measuring business performance, monitoring both InFlight and completed processes, and reporting on business transactions. Business organizations can use the information provided by IBM Business Monitor to identify business problems, correct exceptions, and improve processes and efficiency.

This course includes topics of interest to students who want to develop applications using the IBM Business Monitor environment. Students interested in learning how to administer IBM Business Monitor should take Administering IBM Business Monitor V7.5 (WB798G). Business analysts who want to learn how to design business measures using IBM Business Monitor should take course Business Activity Monitoring with IBM Business Monitor V7.5 (WB799G).

In this course, students learn how to develop, implement, and test IBM Business Monitor applications so that they can generate real-time business views of enterprise data. The course begins with an overview of BAM and BPM in a service-oriented architecture (SOA), and the capabilities that IBM Business Monitor provides. In subsequent units, students learn how to build monitor models, establish performance metrics, monitor events, manage action services, debug the model, and build a business space dashboard. Students also learn how to enable events from various sources, including IBM Business Process Manager Advanced and WebSphere Message Broker.

The hands-on exercises provided throughout the course enable students to develop and implement a monitoring solution. The exercises include how to use the various components of IBM Business Monitor, such as reporting and dimensional analysis using the IBM Cognos Business Intelligence service and the Monitor Development Toolkit, along with other products, such as WebSphere Application Server. Students use the Monitor Development Toolkit to develop a monitor model, and then test the model using the IBM Integration Designer Test client. Students also build customized business space dashboards that can be used to analyze and troubleshoot process performance.
