Introduction to Flowable

APRIL 20, 2017

After our announcement… it seems now to be a good time to give a brief introduction to Flowable. There are just two key takeaways: Flowable is Open Source, and Flowable is an awesome Business Process Management engine.

What does that mean to you? Let’s unwrap some of that and dig in more deeply, as they say.

Open Source, so what?

You can…

just download and start using it

look inside at all the codes

make whatever changes and extensions you need

contribute code back to the project (if you’re progressive enough…)

use it wherever you want…

and we may never need to be aware of each other.

There’s a healthy community of users and people contributing fixes and enhancements, all curated by the core engineers. This community can help you by answering questions on the forums, whether it’s low-level technical detail or just how to get started. There are many varieties of open source projects, and the only way you’ll find out which are the best is by experiencing their community.

And who wants to learn more about the BPM engine? We are looking forward to give u more details… coming soon!

What if more help needed? Support subscriptions are available from now on. Please check Flowable Core

We’ll be talking much more about the technology and business benefits, so remember to check back here to find out more… do not miss to follow us!
