Watch Joram Barrez and Paul Holmes-Higgin's JAX London 2018 session

Using transactional BPM for service orchestration on NoSQL

JAXenter Editorial Team

In this session, JAX London speakers Joram Barrez and Paul Holmes-Higgin show how we have achieved a native integration of open source BPM to MongoDB and its potential with the established relational implementations.

Transactions are still important to process management in the age of microservices orchestration in heavily regulated industries, such as banking. With ACID transactions becoming available in NoSQL, Joram Barrez and Paul Holmes-Higgin show how we have achieved a native integration of open source BPM to MongoDB. The speakers compare the potential of this with the established relational implementations, in terms of performance, scalability, and flexibility.
