Real difference between BPM and CAF

Currently I work out the difference between guided procedures (CAF), BPM and so on.

It is clear that you use the BPM for the A2A process integration (with XI). It is also clear that the CAF is the framework for the SOA functionalities. I think, I read all the docs and tutorials an so on, but the complete differences (or similarities) are still obscure to me. Well, it is all in deployment, so it's hard to find a "so it is in truth"-paper.

Can someone give me an overview of the complete concept and how the different BPM tools work together (or should work together).

Thanks in advance

    Christian,

    Another suttle difference between the two is that CAF makes use of "modeling" wherein you use existing business model to build new ones. Whereas most BPM are built from scratch because of the varied scenario requirements. Not making use of modeling in BPM

    Hi Christian,

    I do not have an answer to your question yet, but I think it is somewhat along the same line as an article

    I just posted in a different Forum:

    Title is <b>"Difference/Link xApps vs CAF vs Visual Composer"</b>Difference/Link xApps vs CAF vs Visual Composer

    Maybe someone will provide us with some answers.

    Regards

    Markus
