Bizagi presents an integrated runtime environment where you can log in to test your automation process. As the building process takes place, this runtime environment, or Work portal, reflects in real time all the changes performed in Bizagi Studio.
The Work portal is a web-based application that only requires a browser, and it is hosted at the web server instance.
Where you host this web server instance and Work portal, is called the Bizagi Server.
Bizagi Studio uses this web server so that you may anytime launch the Work portal, just as it would be seen and made available to the end users on a working environment.
Bizagi Studio automatically generates the Work portal and provides this runtime environment for your automated processes, in order to allow you to carry out quick prototyping and tests.
Supported application platforms to be installed at the web server are:
•Microsoft Internet Information Services (for a .NET runtime environment).

Quick start option
For a quick start, you may rely on a bundled IIS Express instance provided by Bizagi Studio's installer.
No additional configuration is needed and you may skip the chapters on web server configuration.
For doubts about the quick start system requirements, refer to Bizagi Studio system requirements.
If you want to configure a collaborative teamwork setup, make sure you follow the configuration for the IIS as the web server, as presented in the following chapters.
Using IIS is strongly recommended (instead of using IIS Express). This is so because the IIS is a Web server far more robust, configurable and oriented to a better performance, and commonly used for corporate and production environments.
Recall that if you are using an Oracle database, you will need to install the ODP.NET data provider (both the client supporting 32 and 64 bits) at the Bizagi server.
For more information about this, refer to Oracle requisites.
