Burly Joe Sayers – Personality profile

(At our annual meeting every year, we take headshots for our website. We also give everyone the option to show off their personalities, and sometimes, we get them to write a story about their idea’s)

Burly Joe came from humble beginnings. His father, a peanut farmer in rural Georgia, would send him into town every Tuesday on the back of a melon truck for supplies and to sell cajun boiled peanuts outside ole McSchuster’s drug emporium. Well, one Tuesday he came back to the farm and his dad was getting arrested. Some snowflake from the city choked on a peanut that came from his farm and he was suing him for not having a choking hazard on the peanut. Burly Joe never did see his father again and all he left him was an axe and a case of Busch beer.

Rapidly Enhancing an Enterprise Services Layer with IBM BPM and ODM at First Tennessee Bank

First Tennessee Bank (FTB) and Apex Process Consultants have implemented a system-guided process to assist the customer service representative in completing the online banking enrollment process. By leveraging IBM BPM and Apex Coach Views, the solution was developed, tested and ready for production in under five weeks. The ability to develop the solution in such a short time provided an extremely quick ROI. FTB is now leveraging both BPM and IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM) to enhance its enterprise service bus by providing both guided process and decision management across the enterprise. In the latest enhancements, business decisions in ODM provide an early warning mechanism for the bank’s deposit system to detect potential fraud.
