The Evolution & Transformation Of BPM

Recently we covered the topic rising spectre of BPM. Ismael Ghalimi, CEO of Intalio, creator of BPMI.org and initiator of Office 2.0 writes about the forces propelling advances intoBPM 2.0 . Earlier, Bruce Silver outlined it as processes without programming. Ismael rationalises that, currently the BPM moniker is used to describe anything from legacy workflow products to business rule engines, flowchart diagramming tools, Java code generators, or even business process reengineering consultancy services. Sounding that BPM 2.0! has now arrived, he points out that with today’s approach, we will not bridge the business-IT divide by empowering business analysts to get rid of IT people. Instead, we’ll just let more technical process analysts understand business requirements and implement them directly into the process, while leveraging existing IT systems. Neither top-down nor bottoms-up, it’s a middle-out approach, and it’s the only one that makes the gap any narrower.
Essentially encompassing features like Zero Code & One Click Deploy, Generating Web Services on-the-fly, Native interpretation of the BPEL code , Web 2.0 User Interface, BRE as an integral part with opensource process engine and huge cost diferrential, its a system with a different nature of mix. He points out that today a fully featured enterprise-class BPMS would cost north of $250,000. With support for business rules, BAM and a couple of enterprise applications, it would cost you close to $500,000. Such a high price tag is the largest single contributor to the slow adoption rate for BPM , BPM 2.0 will change this by making enterprise-class BPMS products free of charge when deployed through certain configurations. Hybrid business models blending Open Source and commercial software will ensure that a handful of vendors enjoy the success they need for supporting customers over the long run. In the end, customers, system integrators and software vendors alike will all benefit from the upcoming explosion of the BPM market. A well thought out Forrester study released recently predicts increasing adoption of BPM within enterprises. The BPM space itself is seeing lot more activity and this advancement would be surely assessed too closely for actual benefits to come.
