Reflections on Business Process Modeling, BPMN, and BPMS

27/04/2011 | Category: BPM, Open Source | Tags: , , , , ,

And, as any college graduate knows, the bible of better technique is Strunk & White’s Elements of Style. Bruce gets this (and has positioned his book to become the Elements of Style of BPMN), and after 12 hours in his course I can understand why he doesn’t seem so interested in the BPM Suite itself. The fact is that the BPM Suite tends to work just fine whether it is ProcessMaker, Pega, IBM, Appian, or another. The problem is much deeper and needs to be solved in a much less automated way. The problem is the “style.” This problem needs to be solved through better education and better teachers. We need to train better process consultants and this is a long and arduous journey with no shortcuts.

BPM Software Leader has a 24.7% market Share according to Gartner

According to a new Gartner Report, ProcessMaker is not the BPM Software market leader; IBM is.

I would be lying to you if I said I wasn’t disappointed. Apparently, IBM beat us again. In fact, they have 24.7% market share – more than double their closest competitor in the BPM Software space. Now that’s a tough competitor. Hats off to them.

Business Process Management (BPM) represents activities carried out by global enterprises in optimizing and adapting their business processes through the use of software tools. The global economic recession has emerged as a blessing in disguise for the evolving BPM market, providing a solution to deal with falling revenues and margins. The recession has affected the long-standing customer relationships of several businesses, forcing companies to focus efforts on adopting new initiatives for improving customer-centric processes. Adverse economic conditions have also brought to fore the significance of operational transparency, control and auditability, largely due to the cost-containment measures adopted by companies

What constitutes Social BPM and what is the future of Social BPM Software?

28/03/2011 | Category: BPM, Facebook, Open Source, Social Applications, Twitter | Tags: , , , , , ,

The debate about the trends of Social BPM Software and Social Workflow Software continues to rage in the BPM Software blogs, forums, and linked-in groups.  It is definitely a debate worth having.  The BPM industry tends to lean a little to the right and be a little grey on top, so it makes sense that […]

Is Open Source a Viable Business Strategy for Enterprise Software Applications?

3/02/2011 | Category: Open Source | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Last week Derek Singleton of Software Advice published a post on his blog regarding how open source ERP applications have in many ways failed to be as successful as their proprietary counterparts.  Although in many ways this is a hackneyed debate, I think several of Derek’s comments merit further discussion.   I work for an Open […]

Designing workflow software steps as actionable messages in email or facebook messages

5/01/2011 | Category: Open Source | Tags: , , , ,

There is a definite tendancy among companies I work with to implement more and more activities in their business processes “outside” the web login.    In one of my previous posts,  I explored the primary driver behind this tendency – the worker’s attention span is already used up by too many applications.  As a result there […]
