Infor10 Lawson Process Automation (LPA) and Infor10 Lawson Process Integration (LPI) are generally available as of May 15, 2012, for Infor’s Lawson S3 9.0.0/9.0.1 applications. LPA delivers an enterprise-class business process management (BPM) application for use with Lawson and non-Lawson solutions. LPI includes the same functionality as Lawson Process Automation, plus it delivers the IBM WebSphere Transformation Extender (WTX) third-party product for robust any-to-any data mapping and data transformation.
LPA/LPI is designed to model, orchestrate and execute processes between systems and users by providing the tools to build and execute workflow, notifications, and interfaces. With LPA/LPI, tasks can be automated, business events can be monitored, and process compliance can be assured.
LPA/LPI replaces and improves on ProcessFlow Integrator by delivering a superior user experience, improved performance and scalability, and support for internationalization and localization, particularly multi-character set languages such as Chinese and Arabic.
Lawson Process Automation or Lawson Process Integration is available as an upgrade to existing ProcessFlow Integrator customers.
LPA/LPI provides Lawson S3 9.0.0/9.0.1 applications customers with a BPM solution that is designed for Lawson applications, delivered with a rich set of adapters, connectors, and prebuilt Event Triggers to monitor business events, and is ready to use through Inbasket in Lawson Smart Office, Lawson Portal, and Infor10.1 Workspace.
Additionally, reviewers can take action on work items directly from their email inboxes. LPA/LPI reduces business operating costs through faster adoption of best practice, monitoring and improvement of processes, elimination of manual tasks, connection of systems and functions, and elimination of modifications.
It can increase business efficiency and agility through faster design and implementation of business processes, automation of process flows, reductions in training requirements, increased flexibility in the interfacing of systems, and reduced dependency on specialized skills. LPA/LPI can also improve quality and regulatory compliance by ensuring consistency of processes, monitoring individual work units and overall processes, analyzing and reporting on process metrics, and by managing escalation and rerouting.
