BPM - Management Discipline and Technologies

The BPM acronym was used freely and their meaning often varies depending on the context. Organizations usually mention BPM software to describe the capabilities of a product or a technology in particular, as professionals, management consultants and academics typically discuss the process and the BPM management discipline.

Above all, BPM is a management discipline and a focus for managing business processes of an organization. The enabling technology is meaningless without the disciplines and management processes to exploit the technology. BPM involves managing the end-to-end work that the Organization plays to create customer value. The performance of this work is essentially how organizations carry out their missions

Many technology providers have created applications that help organizations better manage their business processes. Typically, these technologies involve tools to design and model business processes visually, simulate and test processes, automate, monitor and evaluate business processes, provide feedback and report the performance of processes. Some vendors have combined these functions in management systems, business processes that provide a complete, integrated BPM platform, referred usually as BPMS (Business Process Management Systems).

Most large organizations have a significant investment in legacy systems. These systems are typically designed to provide support for specific functions, such as manufacturing or sales. To manage the work end-to-end business processes involved in a BPMS must be able to integrate legacy systems of the Organization to track work, information or measure performance. A variety of new technologies has emerged to simplify integration efforts. A common structure on how these technologies are being adopted is often referred to as service-oriented architecture (SOA – Service Oriented Architecture). The technology industry seems to standardize a specific set of open technologies commonly referred to as Web Services (web services). By leveraging web services in SOA, organizations can build and administer business processes across organizational silos and legacy systems. Many technological solutions include the ability to integrate legacy systems via standard interfaces, while providing tools to automate and organize the work throughout the organization.

The acronym BPMS is used to describe technology products that support and empower BPM.
