What is BPM (Business Process Management)?
The industry defines BPM as:
“Business Process Management (BPM) is a discipline involving any combination of modeling, automation, execution, control, measurement and optimization of business activity flows, in support of enterprise goals, spanning systems, employees, customers and partners within and beyond the enterprise boundaries.”
If you are looking to streamline processes and reduce manual labor for your organization, BPM is the right place to look.
BPM Platforms overcome your most pressing process challenges, providing efficiency and flexibility.
BPM is a Way of Thinking AND a Software Category
BPM itself represents a way of operating, a disciplined approach to managing processes. BPM focused software or BPMS (now also called iBPMS, representing the next generation of the technology) is growing rapidly and advancing in maturity.
This category of software allows business problem solvers to build technical solutions that manage end to end sequences of automation or "workflows". Modern BPMS enables even non-developers with the ability to assemble automated flows using drag and drop canvas with virtually unlimited possibilities. What used to require a team of developers and months of time can now be completed with a single business focused (non-coder) innovator in a matter of hours.
