Why take care of BPM?

The pressure to become cheaper, better and faster and provide a whole new level of customeroriented service. Trends which are supporting this shift:
King customer is now a dictator Mass production shift to mass customization Customer are demanding total solutions Industry boundaries are blurring Value chains are becoming the unit of competition Collaboration and coo petition are replacing traditional forms of competition Change has become the only certainty

Main Issues today

Change is constant How do we make selfadaptive, smarter implementations that are better able to cope?

Business driven process versioning Rapid adaption of rule changes in a production environment and on running processes. Solutions today are mainly developer oriented.


Gap Between Business (Thinking Business Wise) and IT (Thinking Technical and Deployment Wise); both having different objective and target !

The SharePoint Opportunity

SharePoint is driving business solutions
From small DMS to complex business solutions (HR, Sales, Finance ) Logical evolution from supporting individuals to departments to organizations

but creating new risks

Rapid response requirement find ways to work faster, adapt quickly, and reduce errors Embedded workflow failures Organizations having multiple manual processes (human centric processes) Information exchange between heterogeneous application (system centric processes) .

Agility is the New Differentiated Competitiveness

Operational excellence is increasingly measured by process responsiveness (aka agility) rather than efficiency as a primary metric. - Gartner

Codebased delivers efficiency

A defined process is automated by an application but the process is achieved by traditional programming logic i.e. Process model converted into codebased executable that incurs engineering cycle (coding, QA/testing, etc.) for change request from business

ModelDriven delivers efficiency and agility

Processes is transparent (aka visible) and adaptable for at both design time and runtime without incurring costly and time consuming engineering cycle for every change request

The only right approach: AGILITY

Business Assets
Assemble reusable components as process vs. custom coding Based on open standards and approach; not proprietary

When required, change can be adjusted onthefly in real time

Infrastructure Integration
Leveraging XML capabilities to make selfdescribing transactions possible rather than static fixed legacy exchanges
