Introduction

Business Process represents a business workflow. New employee onboarding, for example, can be a business process in the Employee Onboarding system.

This procedure will include several Transactions, each of which will have several stages. Serverless360 Business Activity Monitoring gives the ability to define the business process that best represents the user's workflow.

Business Process can be defined as a group of business transactions.

Tracking Name for a Business Process is a name given to the business process to identify it while tracking the relevant data.

The integration solution supported by Business Activity Monitoring is Azure only solution, which typically makes use of Azure Integration Services such as Logic Apps, Service Bus Queues, Event Grid, APIM.
