The K2 and SharePoint 2007, SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 are very successful stories to tell – spanning for almost a decade.
K2 Automated Testing Software
BenchQA allows full test automation of K2, including fully automated K2 SmartForms and K2 Workflow testing. It promotes test driven development for K2 and ensures continued quality assurance for K2 solutions. Easily apply changes to test cases to accommodate changes to K2 apps and ensure all apps are regression tested to avoid defects and assure continuous quality.
The deep integration between K2 and SharePoint means that the no-code K2 to SharePoint integration events requires minimum investment to configure, and it adds tremendous benefits. The K2 accelerators for SharePoint touch various SharePoint features. The most popular form of K2 integration with SharePoint is document and list library integration. Most K2 and SharePoint solution configuration uses this integration. The K2 events for SharePoint cleverly integrate with the SharePoint events infrastructure to hook in the K2 Workflow integration. This K2 Wizard driven approach makes it easy for even a novice SharePoint developer or designer to integrate enterprise workflow with SharePoint.
All elements of the SharePoint document library and SharePoint list libraries are supported by the K2 tool. You can now rapidly build document approval and document lifecycle management workflows using K2 for SharePoint, and even integrate with the records centre in the same process using easy drag-and-drop K2 events. Document and list creation, check-ins, check-outs, deletion and permissions can easily be designed and implemented using the K2 for SharePoint wizards. Workflow solutions for SharePoint can cleverly be constructed by using SharePoint as the data store of line of business data and documents, and using K2 to generate the data access layer to the list and libraries using SmartObjects. The K2 SmartForms platform adds the data capturing features with the metadata that populates dropdowns and pickers being surfaced from SharePoint using K2 auto generated SmartObejcts. The K2 blackpearl workflow adds the behaviour and enterprise management and reporting to the system and it brings the system together; providing the orchestration of the underlying business processes and notifications to stakeholders.
The power of using the K2 and SharePoint enterprise platforms to construct loosely coupled systems is tremendous. It provides agility to change as the business requirements change. The SharePoint document and list libraries can evolve into what is required by the business at any time, the integration with line of business databases can easily be done using external content types or using K2 SmartObjects, the user interface easily changed as required by the users and the K2 workflow processes updated to reflect the latest version of the business process requirement.
