Alfresco also has integrated Business Process Management (BPM) capability. This goes beyond the Simple Workflow folder-based method of sending content for review, allowing content to remain where it is while complex workflows can operate on it. The BPM-based workflow creates tasks for users to complete, with these showing up in the user’s My Tasks To Do Dashboard Component.
