Cross-disciplinary architecture is among crucial and often neglected factors of BPM initiatives. Compatible multi-domain modeling is rarely available or seen as priority in BPM projects in favor of local automation tasks. However, exactly transparent and scale-able process collaboration across an organization determines long term success of the digital transformation.
The ability to capture a consistent view of an organization through precise mapping of relevant notations is a cornerstone of all subsequent BPM implementation. The goal of BPM is not a replacement of existing processes and technologies but their skilled alignment, which should ensure most effective and transparent interaction of the existing corporate infrastructure at minimum cost and modification.
Unfortunately, too many BPM initiatives go as vendor driven disruptions, revolutions, breaks through and other scenarios similarly dubious in terms of attractiveness and suitability for a continuous corporate growth. BPM is merely about bringing a harmony into established business structures, which is a skill too rarely found or distinguished as a demand.
