Assessing BPM technology: Free Guide

Submitted by mwdadvisors on Sun, 2012-02-19 13:02

BPM technology is an umbrella term for the software tools and platforms, and associated services that organisations use to help them implement BPM initiatives. A wide variety of IT suppliers, large and small, claim to offer BPM technology products or product suites, and the result is a significant degree of confusion. What technology capabilities are important to support a BPM initiative? Which vendors are making real efforts to provide those capabilities, and which are simply re-naming or re-positioning their existing technology? And, indeed - does it matter? This report is the second in a set of two, which between them explain how organisations can frame their thinking about their requirements for BPM technology, and explain the thinking behind our assessments of vendors' BPM technology offerings. This report explains the analytical framework we use to shape our BPM technology Vendor Capability Assessment (VCA) reports, which provide independent analyses of the capabilities of key suppliers in this area. Each series of MWD VCA reports has an associated "explanatory notes" document like this.
