  • Thanks for your comment. I've been talking about the crossover between BPM and social computing for a couple of years now, and although there are some small advances being made in the vendors' products, there needs to be a lot more.

  • Great presentation, sorry I missed it.



    I feel you are on target - social computing needs to meet BPM to extend business processes to include our partners 'outside the firewall'. I also liked the points about user empowerment.
