BPM at IBM Impact

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:10-08:00 May 1st, 2012|BPMS|

BPM took center stage on Day 2 of IBM Impact, which used to be a SOA/BPM event but somehow seems to have morphed into a cloud/social/mobile/collaboration event.  Wait, isn't that Lotusphere?  It was sometimes hard to tell.  The key BPM feature touted on Day 1 - identifying other process experts at runtime and contacting them [...]

Gartner BPM – Better This Year

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:10-08:00 April 26th, 2012|BPMN, BPMS|

Often the Gartner BPM conference seems to me the same-old same-old, but I have to say I am getting some valuable new perspective at this year's event in Baltimore. The new wrinkle this year is what Gartner is calling iBPMS, the "i" meaning intelligent.  It's really shorthand for a number of new technology-based capabilities that [...]

IBM Delivers BPMN 2.0

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:10-08:00 November 15th, 2011|BPMS|

It was a longer wait than I expected, but in BPM 7.5.1, IBM is now providing real BPMN 2.0 support.  I haven't had a chance to play with it yet or look at the documentation - I think GA is later this week - but I got the briefing from the team.  And I have [...]

Executable BPMN 2.0

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:11-08:00 November 7th, 2011|BPMN, BPMS|

About 99% of the effort in drafting the BPMN 2.0 standard, and 95% of the bad rap it has received, relates to "executable" BPMN 2.0 models.  It's been over a year since publication of the final spec, and it seems that executable BPMN 2.0 tools don't really exist yet.  I hope I'm wrong. For years [...]

IBM BPM 7.5 White Paper

By | 2011-11-03T11:22:20-07:00 November 3rd, 2011|BPMS|

IBM is the big dog in the BPMS landscape.  BPM 7.5 combines the old WebSphere Lombardi Edition and WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition (aka Process Server) in a single offering.  More than two separate products in a single box, there is real integration under the covers, in the form of a shared Process Center repository.  Find [...]

BPM and Case Management

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:11-08:00 October 31st, 2011|BPMN, BPMS|

The questions of BPM vs Case Management, process vs case, and - almost too horrible for some Case people to contemplate - BPMN extensions for case management - are getting all frothy again.  Here is my take on the topic. 1.  The question is BPM part of case management, or is case management part of [...]

BPM at SAP Tech Ed

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:11-08:00 September 14th, 2011|BPMN, BPMS|

At this week's SAP Tech Ed conference in Las Vegas, BPM is definitely off the main track.  The only other BPM analyst here that I recognized is Jim Sinur of Gartner.  The keynote sessions were all about HANA, SAP's new in-memory analytics platform that is the key to reinvigorating the entire SAP portfolio (at least [...]

G360 Now Open Text

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:12-08:00 July 16th, 2011|BPMS|

I have been listening to the chatter about Open Text's recent acquisition of Global 360.  Here is my take on it. Both companies historically have followed a rollup strategy - acquiring content management and workflow companies with a decent installed base but low growth, and then mostly leaving them alone.  Unlike, say Oracle's acquisition or [...]

A Fresh Look at Simulation

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:12-08:00 May 11th, 2011|BPMN, BPMS|

Probably no aspect of BPM has underperformed versus expectations more than simulation.  It should be a valuable tool that is commonly used in the course of process analysis... but it's just not.  I've been thinking about why that is, and what it would take to make simulation useful in actual practice.  It comes down to [...]

BPMN 2.0 the Key to ARIS-webMethods Integration

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:12-08:00 April 28th, 2011|BPMN, BPMS|

Today Software AG announced a tight integration between ARIS, its leading Business Process Analysis suite, and webMethods, its SOA-based BPM Suite.  The integration features roundtripping and continuous synchronization between business-oriented and developer-oriented models in those tools.  The medium of interchange is BPMN 2.0 XML.  Although the vast majority of existing ARIS assets are in the [...]
