    Great read Karthik.

    If we can get the support for template projects that would be the topping on the cake! I look forward to it.

    Could you possibly elaborate on how well this integrates with NW BPM suite?

      Thanks Vivek.
      I agree, it is definitely in our roadmap.

      Regarding NW BPM, we are commited to enhance the integration even further.
      As of today, you can access the blueprints directly within NWDS and create/establish a link between the blueprint and your implementation. You can also document the BPM process inside NWDS and publish it to BPB(via the SOCO add-on) and the plan is to allow users to access the same published documentation within BPB.
