Sex on the Brain at CMP

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:31-08:00 June 6th, 2008|Uncategorized|

CMP's TechWeb syndicates my blog, and someone posted a question re my recent post about The Future of BPM at BEA/Oracle.  When I tried to reply, the CMP site rejected it for sexual innuendo or something.  You be the judge. The comment: I did not see any speific remarks about Aqualogic in your article and [...]

Introducing SOA Developers to Content Management

By | 2008-03-06T09:42:27-08:00 March 6th, 2008|Uncategorized|

On April 9 I'll be speaking at Impact, IBM's annual WebSphere mega-event in Las Vegas, on the topic of "Leveraging Enterprise Content in BPM and SOA".  I was quite surprised they invited me, as I have been critical of their previous positioning of FileNet vs WebSphere in the BPMS space ("content-centric" vs "process-centric"? are you [...]

Inattentive

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:35-08:00 November 28th, 2007|Uncategorized|

...to my blog.  Yes, guilty as charged.  One reason is I've been doing a lot of writing on other sites.  Examples: monthly BPMS Watch column on BPMinstitute.org new BPMS reports, also on BPMInstitute.org.  Completed so far are Appian, BEA, Lombardi, G360, TIBCO, webMethods (SoftwareAG), FlowCentric, Cordys.  In review cycle: Oracle, Singularity.  Next up: EMC Documentum, [...]

Back Again

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:35-08:00 July 30th, 2007|Uncategorized|

Maybe I bit off a bit more than I could chew.  I launched my BPMN training this spring and simultaneously the update of my BPMS Reports on BPMInstitute.org.  Plus actual paying work.  It was stuffing 10 pounds into a five-pound bag, and the BPMS Watch blog was what fell on the floor.  But now version [...]

BPMS Watch Is One

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:36-08:00 March 27th, 2007|Uncategorized|

BPMS Watch is now one year old.  While my posting schedule remains erratic, readership keeps growing (see Feedburner chart below).  Feed readership is up 200% in 6 months and direct pageviews are up 40%, now 35K per month, plus syndication on several other sites.  The Technorati ranking peaked several months ago around 60,000, and has since dropped to around [...]

Another View on BPEL

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:36-08:00 March 13th, 2007|Uncategorized|

Sandy calls attention to an excellent review of BPEL's history and current status from Oracle's Dave Shaffer and Manoj Das in (ironically) WebSphere Journal.  Probably the best summary of the differences between the new BPEL 2.0 and the little-lamented BPEL 1.1 standard that I've seen yet in print.  She also notes the seeming fakeness of [...]

Is Simulation Fake?

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:36-08:00 March 8th, 2007|Uncategorized|

[This is a re-post of something I wrote yesterday on the SAP Business Process Expert megablog, in case you don’t follow that site.] At the recent Gartner BPM Summit, I was shocked to see how high a pedestal the Gartner analysts now place simulation analysis in their gallery of must-have BPM capabilities. [...]

Camtasia or Articulate?

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:36-08:00 March 2nd, 2007|Uncategorized|

Quick question for BPMS Watch readers.  In my BPMN training I used Camtasia Studio to produce the Flash videos from Powerpoint and screencams.  Of course, now I want to change the slide masters, tweak a few slides, the usual thing.  But the simplest change in the Powerpoint can mean a huge effort in Camtasia.  Changing [...]

Lively Thread on Case Management

By | 2007-02-23T08:24:35-08:00 February 23rd, 2007|Uncategorized|

Oldish threads sometimes take on a life of their own, and recent comments on a January post What is Case Management? have done just that.  If you are interested in this important but mostly ignored corner of the BPM space, check it out.  In addition to the G360 Case Manager product, it seems there is [...]

Appian Heading in a SaaS Direction

By | 2016-12-29T13:40:37-08:00 February 20th, 2007|Uncategorized|

Next week at Gartner BPM, Appian will take the wraps off Appian Anywhere, a hosted subscription-based version of Appian Enterprise.  Appian Anywhere includes the full BPM suite, and leverages Appian's ability to host the entire environment - design tools, engine, object persistence, rule engine, portal, etc. - on the web.  Initially the systems will reside [...]
