Right back from InspireX ! It was a great event with a lot of great sessions and news !
John Burton, Nintex CEO, announced 3 awesome features coming soon :
- The first one is Nintex Insight which will provide BI dashboards to better administer, govern and manage business processes built using Nintex solutions. It is a cloud based service where you can connect your Nintex environments and it will automatically get your workflows data that you can then display in dashboards or reports customizable using Power BI or a third party BI tool. With Nintex Insight, you can deliver both operational and business level Business Intelligence.
- Another new feature announced was Nintex Xchange. It will be an extension to the Nintex community where you will find code samples, solutions, templates, courses, assets shared by the community, for the community. All these solutions and assets will be documented and tested and the author of the solution or asset will provide a support to be sure that everyone can install and use it. This will be a central repository to “do and build more workflows, forms and mobile solutions faster and easier”.
- The last announcement but not the least was about a new product – Nintex Workflow Cloud – meaning getting the power and simplicity of Nintex – outside of SharePoint. Nintex Workflow Cloud will be a solution in the cloud where you can build and execute your processes across your solutions (SalesForce, ServiceNow, O365, etc…) without code. This can really be seen as « Workflow as a Service ». This will open up possibilities !
During this event, I had the honor to present two sessions including one with Vadim Tabakman :).
The first one, a technical one, was about how to perform SharePoint 2013 REST API web requests in Nintex Workflow (Nintex Workflow for SharePoint 2013 and Nintex Workflow for Office 365). SharePoint 2013 REST API enables you to read and edit SharePoint data. In Nintex Workflow, there are already several actions that let you do that but you cannot do all what you’d like. Performing SharePoint 2013 REST API web requests in Nintex Workflow will enhance your processes concerning manipulating SharePoint data.
The session with Vadim was about Nintex Workflow Governance : what you need to do during the installation phase of Nintex Workflow, what you can do to control the use of Nintex Workflow (Nintex actions, constants, permissions…) and what is important to do to maintain your Nintex Workflow environment (controlling the amount of data produced by the workflows).
All the InspireX sessions have been audio recorded and are available in Nintex Learning Center.
