One use of BIX is that it can be implemented Business Intelligence Exchange (BIX) as a solution to extract data to the data marts
Situation: Transformation program to improve and automate the recovery management process for a large global insurer with complex reporting requirements.
Using BIX, Extraction rule can be configured to extract the instances of any work or data or assign class. Using the extraction rule, we can extract Single Value Properties, properties in a page, page list, page group, value list, Value group, embedded pages (all levels), embedded page group (all levels). Extraction rule provides the option to select the list of properties for extraction based on the applied to class of the rule. Direct properties and inherited properties of class will be available in extraction. Data can be extracted to xml format or csv format or Database table.
BIX extraction process can be scheduled by calling Process Commander Application libraries from the Ant script. We specify the data to be extracted and the output format by providing an Extract rule definition defined in Process Commander.
W. Edwards Deming in the 1950’s proposed that business processes should be analyzed and measured to identify sources of variations that cause products to deviate from customer requirements. He recommended that business processes be placed in a continuous feedback loop so that managers can identify and change the parts of the process that need improvements. As a teacher, Deming created a (rather oversimplified) diagram to illustrate this continuous process, commonly known as the PDCA cycle for Plan, Do, Check, Act*:
- PLAN: Design or revise business process components to improve results
- DO: Implement the plan and measure its performance
- CHECK: Assess the measurements and report the results to decision makers
- ACT: Decide on changes needed to improve the process

BPM is the organizational activity that incorporates: Planning, Designing, Building, Operating, Maintaining, and improving business processes and their enabling capabilities forever and for everyone.
Businesses would have a number of processes which need to be repeated over and over again. Some examples would include adding a new customer, modifying details of a customer, paying salary to employees, granting leave to employees, introducing products, etc. These processes also use variety of methods to input data such as web-pages, installed applications, call centers and back offices.
Many organizations, especially the large ones, use various software in each of the sub-divisions to automate and computerize these processes. BPM tools help in maintaining all business rules in one place. BPM tools also help in reducing the coding effort as they are business friendly.
