JP Morgan Chase & Co. www.jpmorganchase.com Platform Development: New Business Process Management Description of Project The JP Morgan Chase Commercial Card group provides products and services to corporations for Purchasing, Travel and Expense Management, and Business to Business payments to enable our clients to streamline payment processing, enhance spending controls, automate payment reconciliation and provide powerful data capture and reporting. These products are targeted to US Middle Market and Large Corporations through our Corporate and Investment Bank and Commercial Bank clients. Through acquisition, mergers and reorganization, the Commercial Card Division has seen significant changes over the past 10 years. The current business systems are non-ideal combination of manual processes and legacy systems from previous divisions.
The student team will design, develop, and validate a new, modern platform for the Commercial Card Division. The platform will be developed primarily using the open source jBPM Suite (Java Business Process Management). Students will be responsible for developing the base framework, U/I, and reporting function, while addressing communications to data storage and persistence (held in a different business system or within this application). The students will also develop and migrate at least one functional processes to the platform Students will evaluate and prioritize further business process for migration.
Phase I Deliverable Deliver approved design framework of the entire system built in jBPM that includes refined U/I and minimum viable functionality for reporting and communications. Include an approved wireframe that addresses data storage and persistence outside the system.
process mapping of one function.
Include a Deliverable (Intermediate – Phase II) and Details Here: SUCCESS Implement an improved business process (more efficient and/or more effective) on the new platform. Additional functionality in reporting and refinement in UI Page 1 of 4
Include Stretch Goals and Details here: HIGH SUCCESS Integration of the data storage and persistence process connection to standard JPMC systems.
