Business Process Automation at CERN with Activiti

Business Process Automation at CERN with Activiti

CERN is using Activiti to automate as many as 60 administrative processes across all of our key business areas such as safety, procurement, finance, logistics, and training. Activiti is the workflow engine which is at the core of CERN’s Electronic Document Handling system (EDH) – an in-house developed application with more than 17’000 active users worldwide, which processes every year over 360’000 electronic documents and over 750’000 electronic signatures.

In this presentation, we will describe how we have integrated Activiti with EDH, for the execution, automatic testing, and monitoring of the aforesaid mission-critical processes.

Presented at the Global Activiti User Day, Paris, France.
