Siebel Business Process Designer Administration Guide > Introduction to Workflow Processes >
Overview of the Workflow Architecture
Siebel Business Process Designer works with all Siebel eBusiness Applications and involves the following architectural components:
- Siebel Tools. Siebel Tools is an integrated environment for configuring all aspects of a Siebel application. In this release, the Workflow Process Designer resides in Siebel Tools. You use the Process Designer within Siebel Tools to build your workflow processes.
- Siebel Client. Workflow Processes and Workflow Policies are administered through the Administration - Business Process views in the Siebel client (Mobile Web Client).
- Siebel Server. Siebel Server manages the Siebel Workflow components that automate business policies.
- Siebel Database. A relational database containing the set of data that Workflow Policies act against.
Siebel Tools provides the design interface of Siebel Business Process Designer. The Mobile Web Client (the run-time client) provides the debugging interface of Siebel Business Process Designer. After workflow processes are designed and debugged, they are written to repository tables for deployment from the administrative interface in the run-time client.
