BPM, SOA & Co. have long been regarded as the solution to challenges facing companies.But things are evolving in  this area as well. Appropriate, adjusted solutions need to be found to meet new requirements. Hence, BPM must also  evolve – and inubit shows how to successfully go down this evolutionary path.

For many companies, the comprehensive automation of standard processes started with the introduction of ERP systems. These systems made it possible to automate “commodity” processes more cheaply than would have been  possible through complex in-house developments. Most ERP applications are very data-centric and users have to  independently use complex screens to navigate through rather implicit processes. There is no intention of providing  more process-controlled user guidance here.

 

The downstream data analysis, which experts refer to as Business Intelligence (BI), focuses mainly on the result of the process, for example, “turnover by period and product” and less on the analysis of the process flow like the “average  cycle time for the order-to-cash process by product and sales channel.”

 

At the same time, many companies standardized the flow of important documents using Workflow Management Systems (WFMS), but these were often only loosely connected to the ERP systems. Only the advent of Business Process  Management (BPM) made it possible to develop integrated, process-oriented applications. These then also supported  process-oriented analysis, for example, using Business Activity Monitoring (BAM).

Today’s projects often face even greater challenges than projects did in the early days of ERP: The aim is to automate and optimize less standardized processes. This is extremely important since these are the processes with which  companies set themselves apart from the competition. In addition, these projects have to be integrated into increasingly complex application environments that have evolved over time.

The extended BPM approach, which we call BPM+, must take this into account and offer perspectives for the future.  Hence, platforms that support BPM+ must aggregate existing data and be able to efficiently link this data with the data  created in the processes. In order to provide user-friendly and efficient user interfaces, we need to use modern web  technologies; without these there would be very high development costs in this area. And finally, modern platforms for BPM+ should support all process types from background processing to processes with many user interactions to  processes with a strong document focus. We will take a look at the three most important process classes a bit later on before we cover the complementary data perspective.
