Alignment between business and processes

By |March 26th, 2018|

Business process management is a common term. But it is rarely questioned what sense bears each word in this combination. Does it imply to manage business with processes? Or to manage business processes? Or to enable processes managing business? Perhaps, nothing from above.

In fact, it might be silly to manage business processes, as far as […]

Is BPMN suitable for RPA modeling?

By |March 23rd, 2018|

Question of relation between methodology and its subject area is quite generic. One one pole, every case is specific and deserves its own methodology. On another pole, nearly every case can be cast to any given methodology with more or less voluntary approximations.

Low-code BPM is the code of business

By |March 22nd, 2018|

I always wondered how appeared strong association between BPM and low-code solutions. As the name suggests, business process management is all about business and its processes. BPM has no direct relation to code.

Think BPM. Understand your business.

By |February 27th, 2018|

BPM is not a new fashionable trend. BPM is not an IT solution. BPM is not a branch of knowledge. BPM is a form of existence of any company, regardless is it recognized or not.

Of course, a company doesn’t think of anything. But management does. Management can think of BPM or not.

If management doesn’t think […]

Modeling foundation of low-code BPM

By |February 15th, 2018|

Integrated development environments (in short, IDE) dominate nearly every area of modern IT. Developers cannot work productively without a graphical shell, which accelerates routine code writing and wraps common constructs. Despite common belief of business, IT is the area occupied by low-code platforms.

Why these low code platforms of IT are not recognized as such in […]

Business sense of automation

By |February 12th, 2018|

It is often believed that automation concerns replacement of humans by machines, in general, and by computers in IT scope, in particular.
