  8. 8. How BPM gets started A problem that IT can’t fix  No time, no resources, too costly Group leaders look elsewhere for:  Process improvement  Ways to do more with less  Ways to manage compliance  Process standardization across departments, groups, regions, etc.  Improved visibility  Quick changes, at less cost Hey! BPM solves problems! Let’s do more! BPM suites are becoming next generation AppDev and DevOp platforms8
  9. 9. How to think about BPM, processes and applications Misconceptions about BPM… • A methodology • A cost cutting initiative • New technologies BPM is a managerial discipline focused on execution, adaptation and consistent performance  Processes are assets and must be managed as such  A new definition emerges… • Process – an asset of execution that affects the quality of a product, service or brand to uniquely satisfy customer needs and differentiates its executor from competitors  BPM requires transaction-oriented software applications to yield to business process applications9

  11. 11. What is a business process application?The system created after careful design, analysis and redesign of acomplex set of activities that manage resources required to achieve abusiness objective. It enables stakeholder collaboration, governsexecution through polices and rules, and measures the achievement ofspecific performance, compliance and outcomes.11

Negotiate (adapt) and record commitments based on roles, empowerment, motivation, accountability, responsibility9. Disseminate information to all relevant systems and stakeholders10. Track and report commitments and results against KPI Set(s) and strategic objectives14

  17. 17. Components of a BPM suite1. A modeling environment for process design, collaboration, analysis and simulation2. Business rules management to define KPIs, ‘controls’ and ‘bounds’ necessary to assure compliance3. A process engine to orchestrate structured processes and unstructured cases4. Integration technology for resource connectivity (internal and external)5. Data and content management for capture, quality management and context and role-based sensitive controls6. Stakeholder user experience to enable people to execute processes7. Operational intelligence for real-time monitoring of process execution, KPI management and rules compliance8. Business analytics for decision support and decision automation (predictive analytics)9. An administration console for system monitoring and control10.
