CM First has been invited to present again at SHARE, the premiere enterprise IT conference

SHARE in San Antonio

Rhodes said, “Some companies essentially gave up on BPM when the investment and complexity made the move too difficult. Speaking at SHARE means CM First can help experts understand what the combination of API’s/microservices plus iBPM can do."

While many people know how Application Program Interfaces (API) and Business Process Management (BPM) helps develop business applications, integrating business process and IT workloads, some have been discouraged in pursuing this approach because of the heavy investment in software and training. The combination of API’s/microservices + iBPM (intelligent BPM) represents a new approach offering a faster and more cost-effective way to modernize. But many developers haven’t heard of this new approach and struggle to deliver on modernization goals by undertaking budget busting rewrites or delivering crude “screen scrape” applications that miss the mark for responsive UX design and device deployments.

CM First has partnered with both OpenLegacy and Axon.ivy to offer a revolutionary ‘API + iBPM’ solution with proven results in helping companies take legacy mainframe applications and transform them into state-of-the art code that will support Cloud, Big Data and web and mobile capabilities. But before developers can begin to look at solutions, a business case must be made to drive interest.

SHARE has invited John Rhodes, CTO, to speak at the biannual conference in San Antonio. Rhodes will present “iBPM – The Developer's Secret In the Quest to Modernize Legacy Applications”, on Tuesday, March 1, 2015 in San Antonio, TX at the Convention Center.

Rhodes said, “Some companies essentially gave up on BPM when the investment and complexity made the move too difficult. Speaking at SHARE will allow CM First to help technology experts understand what the combination of API’s/microservices plus iBPM can do and how it can really speed the modernization effort.”
