During a recent presentation, Arden Thomas, Cincom Smalltalk Product Manager, and Dirk Verleysen, the Lead Engineer for the Modeling and Mapping Tool of Cincom® ObjectStudio®, discussed the processes involved in building a business using Cincom Smalltalk.
In conjunction with the recent desire for Business Process Analysis (BPA) capabilities that focus on the business-user’s perspective, Arden discussed the necessary steps in determining the business’s processes, and Dirk visually demonstrated how to use the Modeling and Mapping Tool to create the necessary IT infrastructure to get the business up and running in minutes. Some of the things demonstrated and discussed were:
