Business Process Management

Buyers' Guide

Technology analysts and consultants don't like to keep things simple. It's pretty obvious, really, since "simple" isn't good for their business. The same goes for customer experience, where toolkits and practices have emerged that cover business culture, strategy and governance as a means of achieving customer satisfaction and loyalty. But sometimes keeping things simple is a better approach. Most businesses are looking for quick wins to justify further investment in customer experience initiatives. It is possible to transform customer experience by focusing on only two key areas: process improvement and empowering your employees. . . . Posted January 05, 2014

Today's economic landscape is characterized by extreme competition, demanding customers, commoditization of products and services and pressure to cut costs. There is an increasing pressure on every organization to do more with less.

In such a demanding and competitive environment, an organization's success depends on its ability to achieve efficiencies through effective management of its business processes. The market share and competitive leadership of the organization depends on the continuous improvements and optimization of its processes. Agility and operational performance are the need of the hour for today's businesses. . . .

The past couple of years have seen a fairly dramatic shift away from process-first BPM approaches toward more dynamic case management solutions. Why the shift? Why is the market turning?

One reason is flexibility. Organizations require systems that can accommodate the variability of real-world business scenarios that are collaborative, information-intensive, subjected to incremental changes, driven by outside events, and responsive to progressive requests from knowledge workers. While BPM is excellent at codifying processes, it is not an optimal tool for accommodating variability and incremental change in real time. . . .

There's been a nearly invisible shift in the business process business, but it is having an enormous impact. Business process management (BPM) is a deeply ingrained support mechanism behind almost every transaction in every organization. . . . Posted January 05, 2014

There was a time when the height of knowledge worker empowerment was the telephone and manila folders. Then came technologies like business process management, enterprise content management and customer relationship management to automate the more repetitive and structured tasks. Flash forward to current times and take notice that a knowledge worker revolution is emerging to deal with modern complexities such as the rapid change in customer and management expectations as well as government regulations combined with current business-to-business consumerization and bring your own device trends. Legacy apps can't keep up and the introduction of dynamic case management (DCM) is filling the gap. Success in the modern business environment is driven by proper and timely decision-making. . . .

Customer-centricity—the practice of aligning business processes and services around the needs of the customer—is driving organizations to understand, manage and improve the customer experience from end to end. Often, systemic and functional silos exist between customer interaction points and the processing parts of the organization, especially when part or all of the customer support and processing functions are outsourced (onshore or offshore). These silos can make it very difficult to align an organization to support a customer-centric strategy. In particular, organizations that leverage captive shared-service organizations or third-party outsourcing partners are challenged to understand how service is delivered and to leverage these partners to take on more case management and knowledge work. . . .

The concept of "social business" is gaining attention because it promises to create a more open, fluid and responsive business environment. The problem is that the much-hyped "enterprise social platforms" such as Yammer, Jive and Salesforce Chatter are incapable of delivering on this vision because they are wholly disconnected from a work context. Enterprise social tools may increase communication, but communication about what? They create yet another siloed platform, cut off from broad enterprise processes, systems and data. This deficiency is particularly apparent in adaptive case management (ACM) work patterns. ACM requires a combination of structured process and unstructured collaboration, but the two must both be firmly grounded in the events, data and enterprise systems relevant to a given case. . . .
