Insights, perspectives and experiences from real world BPM

Unnoticed BPM revolution

By |August 26th, 2017|

Even despite BPM methodology and tools are widely known for at least a decade, there still exists a prejudice that BPM is mere a niche technology not well suitable for every company. This biased view entirely ignores crucial visionary role, which plays BPM in the entire IT landscape.

It is hard to find even a single […]

Case vs process

By |August 11th, 2017|

Case is a grouping container for business objects and processes. None is a replacement or an inclusive container for another. Both are equally important for a balanced BPM solution. Well measured combination of case management and process orchestration where either side never overweight another is essential in a successful BPM initiative.

Low-code / no-code BPM

By |August 2nd, 2017|

It would be an error to say that low-code platforms are an exclusive prerogative of BPM systems. In a wide sense, any modern platform already is low-code. Computers do not operate on a level of programming languages. They just execute sequences of binary commands. In this sense, any programming language, even low-level one, such as […]

Scrapping business processes

By |July 27th, 2017|

Business structures, especially on large enterprises, are quite stable. This stability relates to real business assets behind these structures, such as production facilities and employees. Business processes express relations between these objectively existing business objects. This implies stability of these processes.

Process agnostic to digitization

By |July 15th, 2017|

The process of intellection. While BPM is an incredible technology to describe / model / automate business routine, imagination and creativity are principal irrationalities distinguishing real business from a perfect digital machine. No doubt, well designed business machine can become unrivaled in superior delivery of predefined business outcomes. However, it will never compete with human […]

Perfect process

By |July 5th, 2017|

Perfect process is an abstraction, which predefines and motivates all development of BPM.

Perfect process does not exist literally in most cases. Rather, it serves as an asymptotic, which represents a reference point for any process improvement. In this sense, perfect process is a cornerstone and an ultimate goal of process mapping, analysis and governance initiatives. […]

Case definition

By |June 25th, 2017|

Case is a grouping container intended to hold artifacts and operations associated certain business entity.

Business practice normally deals with complex mutable structures, which have no clear and stable equivalents among classical data primitives. Case is convenient generalization to express this inherent volatility while preserving the unifying business idea behind this ad-hoc association.

Case offers convenient and […]

Factors preventing BPM adoption

By |June 11th, 2017|

There exists definite psychological barrier and prejudice against BPM, both among management and workers, in perceiving BPM as too mechanical and “soulless” technology. It is important in this respect to stress crucial “human” dimension of BPM, which saves workers from enormous time losses on boring routine tasks and unlocks incredible potential for improvisation and creativity.
