Business Process Management Meets Enterprise 2 0

  1. 1. Business Process Management Meets Enterprise 2.0<br />Sandy Kemsley<br />Kemsley Design Ltd.<br /><br />
  2. 2. Agenda<br />Defining BPM and social software<br />BPM and Enterprise 2.0<br />Collaborative process modeling<br />Runtime process collaboration<br />Online BPM communities<br />Software as a service<br />Impacts and future directions<br />
  3. 3. What Is BPM?<br />A management discipline for improving cross-functional business processes.<br />The methods and technology tools used to manage and optimize business processes.<br />Model<br />Automate<br />Optimize<br />Monitor<br />
  4. 4. What’s In A BPMS?<br />Process modeler<br />Repository<br />Execution engine<br />System integration (web services)<br />Work-in-progress management<br />Monitoring and analysis<br />Simulation and optimization<br />
  5. 5. What Is Web 2.0?<br />Consumer-facing social software<br />Software as a service<br />User-created content<br />Lightweight development models for mashups<br />Image copyright The Economist, 2010<br />
  6. 6. Web 2.0 Examples<br />Gmail: rich interface,constantly upgraded<br />Wikipedia: content frommany authors<br />Google Maps: open APIadds to other apps<br />
  7. 7. What Is Enterprise 2.0?<br />Enterprise-facing social software<br />Business purpose, not purely social:<br />Social interaction to strengthen weak ties<br />Social production to collaboratively produce content<br />SaaS or on-premise<br />
  8. 8. Enterprise 2.0 Examples<br />Beehive, IBM’s internal social network<br />Intellipedia, US intelligence community’s wiki<br />
  9. 9. Collaboration, Social Networking and BPM<br />
  10. 10. Drivers For BPM And Enterprise 2.0<br />Changing user expectations<br />Trends towards greater collaboration<br />Lack of agility in many current BPMS implementations<br />
  11. 11. Collaborative Process Modeling<br />Multiple people participate in process discovery, modeling and documentation<br />Captures “tribal knowledge”<br />Internal and external participants<br />Technical and non-technical participants<br />
  12. 12. Collaborative Process Modeling: Examples<br />Lombardi Blueprint<br />SAP NetWeaver BPM with Google Wave<br />
  13. 13. Runtime Process Collaboration: Dynamic BPM<br />User can “step outside” structured process + create ad hoc collaboration<br />Audit trail and artifacts captured within BPMS audit log<br />Eliminates uncontrolled(unaudited) email processes<br />
  14. 14. Runtime process collaboration examples<br />HandySoft<br />Fujitsu<br />
  15. 15. Online BPM Communities<br />External communities of practice<br />Provide idea exchange, tools<br />Augment or replace internal BPM center of excellence<br />May be vendor specific/sponsored<br />Internal center of excellence<br />Discussion forums<br />Collaboration linked to process models<br />Collaboration linked to process instances<br />
  16. 16. Online BPM Communities: Examples<br />External communities of practice<br />IBM BlueWorks<br />Appian Forum<br />Software AG ARISalign (AlignSpace)<br />Internal center of excellence<br />Appian<br />Global 360<br />Fujitsu<br />
  17. 17. BPM Software As A Service<br />Reduce capital costs<br />Full capabilities of on-premise version<br />Design and run from anywhere<br />Key targets:<br />Business process outsourcers<br />Small and medium business<br />Business-to-business processes<br />
  18. 18. BPM Software As A Service: Examples<br />Appian Anywhere<br />Fujitsu InterstageBPM<br />Cordys Process Factory<br />...more emerging<br />
  19. 19. Impacts Of Enterprise 2.0 And BPM<br />
  20. 20. The Analysts Agree...<br />
  21. 21. Social/Cultural Impacts<br />Participatory culture for collaborative modeling<br />Business must commit resources<br />IT must allow business to participate<br />Comfort level for collaborative execution<br />Users must feel comfortable deviating from predefined structured process<br />Management must allow sufficient autonomy<br />
  22. 22. Technological Impacts<br />Standardized RSS/Atom feeds for repurposing data and user-created dashboards<br />IM/SMS/microblogging for process alerts<br />Rich user interfaces (AJAX) eliminate desktop installation<br />User-created mashups<br />
  23. 23. Economic Impacts<br />RIA and lightweight development models lower development costs<br />Fast graphical development<br />End-user composition<br />Software as a service BPMS lowers capital costs<br />Runtime collaboration lowers cost and latency of process modeling<br />
  24. 24. Barriers To Adoption<br />Perceived loss of management control over processes<br />Lack of understanding/trust in lightweight development models/tools<br />Risk of data loss or security breach with SaaS BPMS<br />
  25. 25. The (Enterprise 2.0) Future Is Already Here<br />BPMS vendors incorporating Enterprise 2.0 functionality<br />RIA configurable user interfaces<br />Lightweight integration<br />RSS/event feeds<br />Design collaboration<br />Runtime collaboration<br />SaaS<br />These are facilitating change in BPM<br />
  26. 26. What To Expect In The Future<br />User tagging of process instances<br />Dynamic subprocess definition<br />Integrated IM and other synchronous communication<br />Goal-oriented shift of process responsibility from management to knowledge workers<br />
