Cloud Edition

Living Systems® Process Suite Cloud Edition is a business process design suite with its execution part in cloud. With the execution taking place in cloud, you do not have to set up a server with the execution resources, such as, database, application server, and the execution engine yourself.

All you need on your computer is Process Design Suite (PDS) with which you can model and deploy your processes, and administrate runtime.

To acquire Living Systems® Process Suite Cloud Edition, register with Whitestein on www.whitestein.com.

Limitations

The cloud edition is based on the LSPS Enterprise Edition; however, it has the following limitations:

  • It does not contain the Embedded Server, the application server with the Execution Engine.
  • It does not include the Runtime Suite (no command-line and migration tools).
  • It does not include the Repository: you cannot customize the front-end application, or create custom objects that require implementation in Java, that is, custom Task types, custom Form Components, and custom Function definitions with implementation in Java (you can implement your functions in the Expression Language).
  • The runtime connection is pre-set and cannot be changed.
