A Global Workflow Infrastructure

Thursday, September 20, 1:30 pm

Presented by Stephen Coster, Robert Jenks

Goldman Sachs Workflow systems provide vital infrastructure to the operation of the firm, coordinating the execution and delivery of millions of business-critical tasks across the entire Firm (including trade facilitation, regulatory rule computation, exception processing coordination, personnel onboarding and thousands of other business processes).

In this presentation, you will learn how Goldman Sachs is leveraging Camunda software at the heart of two of its Workflow platforms:

  • Workflow Elements – The Camunda process execution engine is integrated with a task engine, task cache and entitlements cache, wrapped by REST APIs, to implement a “managed appliance” which integrates with Firm systems and orchestrates both human and system processes at enterprise scale.
  • Decision Services Platform – The Camunda process execution engine is leveraged in our in-memory Decision Flow engine. The engine integrates high-performance rule execution with data integration in an extension of the DMN standard. The platform leverages GS’s own open-source jDMN execution engine.
