Z Flow offers rich structured and unstructured data management capabilities to support workflow management. The primary types that are of interest include

Workflow (Process) Attributes

Workflow attributes are structured information that describe the business context of the workflow. These attributes can be used to collect relevant information as well as for rules that determine the workflow path. It is likely that these attributes (highlighted below in the picture) represent different objects (quotes, product master data, customer data, events, etc.) of the system to which Z Flow is integrated.




Z Flow has rich support for managing files as part of process workflows, as independent objects, or in relation to other objects. Files can also be subject to lifecycle management (version, revision and release management) if needed.



Form is a generic structured object that can also be used to represent different type of master and transactional data used in business processes. Forms can be part of a workflow instance.
