Announcing bpmNEXT 2013 Program

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:09-08:00 January 14th, 2013|BPMN, BPMS|

It took a bit longer than we hoped, but the program at bpmNEXT 2013 is now set.  bpmNEXT, which takes place March 19-21 at Asilomar Conference Center on the Monterey Peninsula, is not your typical BPM conference.  It's a technology showcase spotlighting the next generation of BPM software innovation.  No how-tos, best practices, or case [...]

bpmNEXT Early Bird Registration Deadline Extended to November 19

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:09-08:00 November 12th, 2012|BPMN, BPMS|

Because so many people were set back by weather-related issues in the past two weeks, we've extended the early bird discount for bpmNEXT registration until November 19.  bpmNEXT is an exciting new event I'm hosting with Nathaniel Palmer next March 19-21 at Asilomar, near Pebble Beach in California.  The event will showcase leading examples of [...]

New Gartner MQ: Rattling the Birdcage vs Upsetting the Applecart

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:09-08:00 October 12th, 2012|BPMS|

I'm probably the last to chime in on the new Gartner iBPMS Magic Quadrant.  Adam Deane's hilarious sendup cannot be topped, and Scott Francis's uber-thoughtful three-parter is also excellent, but possibly takes it more seriously than it deserves.  Both are well worth reading.  Here is my take. Many of us, at some point in our careers, [...]

IBM BPM Update

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:09-08:00 October 11th, 2012|BPMS|

This week IBM hosted a special analyst event in San Francisco focused on their BPM/ODM portfolio.  ODM is the unification of IBM's acquisitions in business rule and business event technology, and was given equal billing with BPM at the event.  That was surprising given the near-complete absence of information about case management, which seems significantly [...]

Case Management White Paper Available

By | 2012-10-08T08:56:53-07:00 October 8th, 2012|BPMS|

In the world of BPM, the hottest topic today is case management. Some call it dynamic case management or adaptive case management, and some say it’s not part of BPM at all. One thing is for sure: Conventional BPM Suites cannot do it very well. The objectives of case management are identical to those of [...]

Oracle BPM Update

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:09-08:00 October 5th, 2012|BPMS|

Oracle has this unfortunate policy of putting almost everything in their Fusion Middleware Analyst Day under NDA and requiring blogs on that to be preapproved by Oracle.  So I will just ignore what I heard in the analyst sessions and talk about what I saw in the Exhibition Hall, where bits of the next release [...]

BPMN vs ACM… Again

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:09-08:00 September 21st, 2012|BPMN, BPMS|

It boggles my mind that we are still having this debate, but there it is: Is BPMN compatible with ACM?  The latest round started with a paper presented by Keith Swenson at a BPM conference, stirred up by Sandy Kemsley's review, and kicked into full riot by an ebizQ comment thread.  The supposedly winning argument [...]

SAP BPM White Paper Available

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:09-08:00 September 12th, 2012|BPMS|

SAP, well-known as a leader in the enterprise applications space, is often overlooked as a supplier of BPM technology, but the company has been quietly moving forward with BPM on a broad front, and in fact has a great story to tell. Their goal is to be the preferred BPM technology supplier for SAP customers, [...]

Startup Roubroo Adds Adds Ad-Hoc Behavior to BPMN 2.0

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:09-08:00 August 13th, 2012|BPMS|

Vishal Saxena, formerly lead BPMS developer at Oracle and Intalio and a member of the BPMN 2.0 technical committee in OMG, today showed me a demo from his new company Roubroo.  The interesting thing to me about Roubroo is the ease of modifying process definitions at runtime, either on a single instance or a set [...]

Announcing bpmNEXT

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:10-08:00 June 11th, 2012|BPMS|

"BPM is dead."  Really??  No, I don't think so.  In fact, we're seeing more innovation now in the technology of BPM than at any time in the past several years.  Big Data, real-time  sense and respond, predictive analytics, goal-driven and "adaptive" processes, social BPM, mobility....  The list goes on.  Wait, you say, that's not really [...]
