Today, a company’s IT department is more interconnected and dependent across all of its divisions and functional groups. The base of this interdependency within global organizations is reliable and quick information flow across a vast Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), which operates underneath complex Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Business Process Management (BPM) and Complex Event Processing (CEP) deployments. Every managerial decision or corporate strategy affects these message networks, which increases the importance of having the latest data about these deployments and its customizations exponentially. This information is not only critical for your IT department during the implementation, but also serves as a basis for managerial decisions during day-to-day operations.
MakeDoc® for TIBCO is able to increase your IT departments productivity, decrease the time required for business requirement implementations, increase your system‘s uptime, and allow your IT department to provide accurate, technical level feedback on proposed decisions.
By using MakeDoc® for TIBCO as a complementary product to enhance the responsiveness of your TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks™, BusinessEvents™ and iProcess suite™ deployments, your company will experience:
- Faster fulfillment of market demands
- Bring you a step ahead of your competitors and in conclusion
- Lead to happier customers
It’s not your SOA and CEP platform that cares about your customers... IT’S YOU!
So use MakeDoc® for TIBCO to leverage TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks, BusinessEvents and iProcess suite to a new level of efficiency.
Documented Projects / Cross-Referenced Middleware Architecture
Continuous availability of up to date and consistent documentation for your middleware platform. Visibility into your actual deployments benefits solution architects, developers, support and operation, and management. MakeDoc’s Microsoft Word output format allows for unlimited customization for presentations to emphasize critical points to a specific audience (clients, management, etc.).
Business Requirements Transformation
On average, 30% of time for transforming a business requirement from its functional to technical specifications is saved. You can choose the depth of documentation detail so analysts and integration architects are not burdened by too detailed and technical issues. Clear communication lines for your team will be established. End user testing and hand over procedures will be simplified.
Operation & Release Management
Standard system operation and new deployments can be monitored and controlled more effectively. MakeDoc® automatically generates snapshots of your test and production platform by running in batch mode. Different versions can be stored and compared using MakeDoc’s built in Repository Analyst. Deltas of platform versions are created and stored and should downtime occur, IT teams focus on highlighted items that changed immediately before the error occured, saving 90% of time to identify source and location of the problem.
Special on-demand service, that is set according to the customer’s specifications. Automatic testing helps to find 80% of errors, which usually can’t be discovered during development, or unit testing. Deviation from standards are quickly identified, addressed and can be centrally enforced.
BPM Analysis (iProcess Extension)
How to identify interconnections among iProcess suite procedures and ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks processes? MakeDoc’s iProcess suite documentation and BPM / ESB Cross-Reference enables the analysis of both the ESB and BPM layer and all their interconnections from one central place.
Creates real-time visibility into your TIBCO SOA/middleware deployment, projects, and legacy systems. MakeDoc’s output is a well-arranged, organized and uniform, printable document with searchable indices to save your time.
Written in Java and therefore portable among different operating systems. Developed under operating systems Microsoft Windows and GNU Linux.

MakeDoc® for TIBCO Provides 5 Main Services
Project Documentation provides detailed and comprehensive information about an unlimited number of projects.
Cross-Reference links the communication between destinations, projects, the usage of global variables and database objects within the projects. Cross-Reference by Destinations produces a graph of projects communicating with selected destinations. Supports JMS messages, SOAP, JDBC connections, RV messages and BusinessEventsTM. Cross-Reference by Global Variables maps the references of a selected global variable in all analyzed projects. Cross-Reference by Database Objects shows queries executed by projects on a selected database table, view, or procedure. Cross-Reference by Projects provides a list of all destinations, global variables or database objects referenced by a selected project.
Repository Analyst allows the tracking of changes and development progress among projects or production evironments.
Quality Assurance is an adjustable rule based system, which checks the adherence to your set development standards by validation of TIBCO resources according to set of defined rules.
BPM x ESB Cross-Reference analysis is generated for all BW and IProcess inputs and identifies which ESB services are called by BPM procedures or which BPM procedures are triggered by ESB processes.
