Business Process Management (BPM) is not just about creating a one off process based application. For successful organizations, BPM is a way of doing business. They document their processes using BPM, analyze those processes regularly and keep improving those processes. After all BPM is about continuous process improvement.
But to enable this we need Business Process Management system that is business-driven, complete and brings to the table best practices.
Business-driven means that that the people who are closest to the operation are involved in designing, running and improving the process, in collaboration with IT.
Since different processes have different functional requirements, we need a complete suite that offers capabilities to manage any type of process in your organization. Process can be document heavy, integration heavy, rules centric, human workflow or event centric. You do not want a different BPM suite for each type of a process. That will make managing the processes and interlinking of the processes challenging, not to mention high training and skill management costs.
BPM is not just about technology, it is also about principals and methodology of process management and application development. You need a suite that brings with it models and best practices in your domain, process design and in application development. Also, pre-built best practice processes shorten time-to-solution and brings results faster.
