BPM Quotes of the week

On BPM Researchers – Alberto Manuel

One of the most prominent academic thinkers in the field of BPM: Wil van der Aalst. This man was responsible for developing the basic concepts of process modeling through petri nets (where all the other mapping standards drunk inspiration), in addition to the enormous contribution to scientific thinking around BPM in the last decade.

On BPM and Mobile – Evan McDonnell

So how do you improve process speed? BPM by itself clearly makes processes faster. Having a clear process that automatically moves work from person to person is radically faster than managing through paper or even e-mail and attachments. Converting processes to BPM is good, but no longer good enough. The key to faster process speed can be summed up in a single word – Mobile. The growth of mobile and smart phones in particular is astonishing.

On BPM Suites – Blogger

We have spent years talking to industry experts, analysts, our partners and our customers about what they want and need from a BPM suite and how we can best help them solve their process problems. It’s clear that BPM isn’t going away and that people are turning to it more and more to help fix some very complex problems

On BPM ROI – Jaisundar

To me, if there is only one striking difference between a BPM solution and a conventionally developed application, then it is the opportunity to unlock hidden potential for improvements.

On Social BPM – Ian Gotts

Collaboration to improve a business process or to get a job done – the 2 perspectives of Social BPM – has always happened. Now there can be less friction, more people can be involved, and better decisions can be made. But there’s the rub. Unless you have a solid process context or backdrop to have those conversations you will not exploit Social BPM. So for many companies, getting the basics in place – consistent, shared, understood end to end processes – is the starting point. Social BPM is not a short cut.

On BPM and Gartner – Mike Gammage

There’s no shortage of BPM specialists: the BPMS vendors, the BI vendors, the BAM vendors, the BPA vendors, the process discovery vendors, the ECM vendors. What we’ve lacked is the BPM physician. Now Gartner has staked a credible claim to that role, at least in the office of the CIO

On the BPM Core – Ashish Bhagwat

We have had many peripheral distractions along the way: Social BPM, BPM(S) in the cloud, and blurring with many other disciplines & technologies, but I guess we have had an opportunity to synergize all these and focus on what the BPM as a discipline had to offer

On BPM in the GCC – Sanooj Kutty

BPM in the GCC will face its toughest battle not at a functional or technological level, but, with governance. Governance sets controls and authorities that enable the right people and restrict the wrong people. Until such time, that they do not learn to empower and restrict in a balance, no automation shall compensate for innovation. BPM as a discipline and as a technology both rely on improvement. Improvement, not by automation, but by innovation

On Process Status Interfaces – John Reynolds

Improved process visibility is one of the key promises of BPM, so think these screens through very carefully. If you don’t do them well, then you probably won’t meet your BPM objective.
