Process-Driven Applications: A New Approach to Executable BPMN

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:01-08:00 March 18th, 2015|BPMN, BPMS|

One of the singular successes of BPM technology is a common language - BPMN - used both for process modeling and executable design.  At least in theory....   In reality, the BPMN created by the business analyst to represent the business requirements for implementation often bears little resemblance to the BPMN created by the BPMS [...]

BPM at IBM InterConnect

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:01-08:00 February 26th, 2015|BPMN, BPMS|

It would be unfair to say there was absolutely nothing on BPM at IBM's InterConnect conference, which took place this week in Las Vegas... but it would not be far from the truth. InterConnect is the supposed successor to IBM's annual Impact middleware event where "Smarter Process" - IBM's term for BPM and decision management [...]

BPMN as an Execution Language

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:01-08:00 April 4th, 2014|BPMN, BPMS|

One of the reasons that BPMN so quickly displaced BPEL in the BPM space is it had a graphical notation that exactly mirrored the semantic elements. What you see is what you get.  So whenBPMN 2.0 changed the acronym to Business Process Model and Notation, I stubbornly refused to acknowledge the "and".  For me it [...]

Get Ready for bpmNEXT 2014

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:02-08:00 February 20th, 2014|BPMS|

If you’re interested in the technology side of BPM, there’s an upcoming event you won’t want to miss.  It’s called bpmNEXT, and it runs from March 25-27 at the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, a stone’s throw from Pebble Beach on the Monterey Peninsula.  I'm hosting it together with Nathaniel Palmer of BPM.com.   This [...]

IBM Impact: BPM Makes Way for Smarter Process

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:07-08:00 May 6th, 2013|BPMN, BPMS|

Process innovation was a central theme of last week's IBM Impact conference - it took center stage in the Day 2 Main Tent - but the term BPM has seemingly been banished at IBM, replaced by "Smarter Process".  Now BPM is just the name of one product in the larger Smarter Process marketecture, shown below. [...]

bpmNEXT Review

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:08-08:00 March 22nd, 2013|BPMN, BPMS|

Thanks as always to Sandy Kemsley for a detailed summary of all the talks.  My review is more impressionistic.  The goals of the program were these: Talk about something I haven't seen before Actually, SHOW me don't just tell me Spur my imagination And the program in the end met those goals.  It was really [...]

bpmNEXT 2013 – A Home Run!

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:09-08:00 March 22nd, 2013|BPMN, BPMS|

I'm just back from bpmNEXT.  From my perspective as the event organizer, it could not have gone any better, and the tweets seem to agree. Malcolm Ross ‏@mrappian  Great time at the #bpmnext event this week.. looking forward to next year Steinar Carlsen ‏@steinarcarlsen  #bpmNEXT - Thank you @bpmswatch and @nathanielpalmer for organizing a great [...]

5-Minute BPM with Effektif

By | 2013-03-11T08:44:34-07:00 March 11th, 2013|BPMS|

Open-source BPM pioneer Tom Baeyens (jBPM, Activiti) today announced the launch of his new company Effektif, aiming to dramatically lower the cost and effort of human-centric process automation.  Unlike jBPM and Activiti, which targeted BPM developers, Effektif looks to empower ordinary end users with a cloud-based BPM tool.  Initially Effektif will limit processes to simple [...]

Expect Nothing to Work

By | 2013-03-01T14:27:52-08:00 March 1st, 2013|BPMN, BPMS|

One of the things I love about Ismael Ghalimi is he is an absolute nut... in a cool, brilliant way.  He launched the modern BPM era about 10 years ago (BPMN was one result of that) but his company Intalio never quite reached escape velocity. Sometime last year he started a new venture STOIC, a [...]
