Topic:          Rapidly Automate Complex Workflows using K2 and SharePoint Server 2007


DescriptionTogether, K2™ and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS) provide a robust BPM platform for delivering solutions that involve people and processes.  With the release of K2 BlackPearl, K2 now provides multiple workflow designers targeted to different users within the organization so that they can take ownership of their automated business processes.  Demonstrating how different user roles using the K2 designers can automate complex workflows that leverage the capabilities of MOSS will be the focus of this session.



·  How a business user can automate a policy approval  in SharePoint using the AJAX based K2 Web Workflow

·  How a business analyst using Visio, InfoPath Form Services and K2 can automate an expense claims process Visio diagram

·  How a workflow developer in BlackPearl Studio can collaborate with and/or extend the above workflows and provide deeper integration into SharePoint through the K2 SharePoint wizards which allows interaction with:

Ø  Site — managing sites and site permissions

Ø  Library and List — managing lists and list permissions

Ø  Document Manipulation — working with documents, document permissions and document metadata

Ø  List Item — working with individual items in a list

Ø  Records Management — managing records, record permissions and record attributes

Ø  Event Process — taking action triggered by MOSS events

Ø  Publishing — streamlining collaboration and approvals for Web publishing

Ø  User Management — managing users, groups and permissions

Ø  Workflow Integration — associating K2 processes with MOSS libraries and lists
