BPM at IBM InterConnect

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 Explained – Part 2

Yesterday I tried to explain BPMN to those who don't know what it is.  OK, they are probably saying, if BPMN is so great, why do I hear these complaints about it?  Yes, that's a good question. First, you need to understand exactly who is complaining.  If it's a legacy tool vendor wedded to their [...]

BPMN Explained

On Twitter someone posted to me: "Have you ever seen a short overview of BPMN that makes sense to people who have never heard of it?"  Hmmm... Probably not.  So here is my attempt.

Visualizing Responsive Processes

Method and Style Wizard Generates BPMN Automatically

itp commerce has just released a new BPMN Method and Style wizard that automatically creates well-structured BPMN from a simple interview.  In my BPMN training, the "Method" is the hardest part because it asks students to describe the process top-down and abstractly, as opposed to the bottom-up "what came next?" format of the SME fact-finding.  [...]

BPMN and CMMN Compared

IBM's presentation at bpmNEXT of their implementation of case management inside of BPMN (and their subsequent launch of same at Impact) inspired Paul Harmon to start a lively thread on BPTrends on whether BPMN and CMMN should be merged.  To me the answer is an obvious "yes," but I doubt it will happen anytime soon.  [...]
