Innovation. Collaboration. Mobility. Cloud. These are the hallmarks of next-generation business process solutions—and the business process management (BPM) software that will enable them. It is no longer sufficient to drive benefits at the edges; BPM must drive fundamental change and growth across the organization. Select involvement in process improvement will not radically transform a business; all employees at all levels (both on-site and in the field) must "be part of the process" in active collaboration. Finally, the cost and scalability benefits of BPM SaaS (software as a service) must be fully realized.

In short, business process management software must leverage the latest advances in social technologies and application delivery to increase an organization's tempo in responding to change and growing the business.

BPM today does some things very well. It automates repetitive processes to improve throughput and capacity. It increases efficiencies. . . .

A business process is a series of connected events that begins with an input and ends with an output. Your business process management application uses roles, resources, business rules and more to achieve increases in process speed, efficiency and effectiveness. But these results alone may not be enough: Your customers also want consistency in the output; adaptability to changes; and always "faster, better, cheaper." To achieve maximum return to the business, don't settle for a "black box" process that is concerned only with inputs and outputs. To achieve consistency in performance, you need to establish standards that are continually measured and reported in a timely manner. Your process must be adaptable in both its execution and its design as requirements change. The process should build in and facilitate a capability for continuous improvement.

The key to achieving these additional goals is process visibility. If the process is visible, it can be measured. . . .

It's inevitable that a discussion regarding business process management has to stumble over definitions. When I sit down to think about it, it's clear as glass that everybody, in some way, accomplishes BPM every day. Whether it's a formalized, codified set of practices, or just a random "that's how we've always done it" kind of thing, BPM is ingrained in every business process you can think of. Otherwise, chaos would reign, life as we know it would cease, cats would be sleeping with dogs… it would be a righteous mess.But do people think of their jobs in terms such as "business process management." Does anyone get up in the morning and say, "Better get to the office, I've got lots of business process managin' to do."

That one got a laugh from Karin Ondricek. Karin (pronounced KAH-rin) is senior marketing manager for content management and archiving at EMC Corporation. We talked for a while last week. I had planned for us to talk about the market for BPM, but we ended up talking more about the process of BPM. . . . .
