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.

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.
