Appian Corporation: Enterprise BPM Suite Posted January 01, 2007

About 11 years ago, a group of us were starting to ask ourselves whether all this "information management stuff" might have a greater purpose than merely to store information in a file server somewhere. That maybe—just maybe—information could be applied to the type of work and to the level of decision-making taking place in business at such a famously accelerated pace. And in providing that information to the right person at the right time, the promise of a truly knowledge-based economy could be realized. In the 10 years since ImagingWorld became KMWorld magazine, we've tried to address the discipline (practice? theory? religion?) of knowledge management from each of its well-known constituent components—people, process, technology.

Evolving business process management (BPM) capabilities are improving process automation, allowing deeper integration with Microsoft Office, and offering a better understanding of process efficiency through use of business intelligence (BI). Posted January 01, 2007

Interactive BPM is a powerful and flexible capability that enables business professionals to view real-time performance metrics and to make changes to business processes dynamically. The first component of interactive BPM is business activity monitoring (BAM) which provides visibility into key performance indicators (KPIs). However, providing a “warning” when KPIs fall outside targeted levels is not enough. Posted January 01, 2007

A dashboard is a vital tool for monitoring the daily health of your organization. From a single interface, decision makers have access to key performance indicators (KPIs)—actionable information that can be used to effectively guide and track business performance. Posted January 01, 2007

"How can I approve this customer's commercial loan application? I can't even find all the documents and email communications related to the initial request..." This scenario is increasingly common and stems from the fact that organizations deploying business process management (BPM) solutions... Posted January 01, 2007

Businesses run on large, complex networks of underlying processes. Settling billing disputes, introducing new products, procuring goods and services, issuing loans, managing inventory—the quality and efficiency of these processes drive sustainable competitive advantages for the business. Posted January 01, 2007

Automation, automation, automation. Like the old maxim concerning real estate (“Location, location, location ...”) it sometimes seems that business process management (BPM) software vendors tout the virtues of process automation to the exclusion of all else. Yes, process automation is a significant BPM benefit. Posted January 01, 2007

The traditional world of business process management (BPM) is changing dramatically. BPM has already progressed from a niche solution automating administrative processes to a strategic business tool being used to standardize mission-critical operations. With the maturation of BPM suites, we are seeing a change. Posted January 01, 2007

Many business process management suite (BPMS) solutions are falling short of their promise to give organizations an end-to-end view of business processes. In most organizations, processes live in a variety of business systems within the enterprise. Thus, organizations will inevitably have to contend with the challenge. Posted January 01, 2007

In the fast moving world in which we operate, there are many sources of frustration. How many times have you had a great idea, only to be beat out by your competition before you could bring it to fruition? Or worse, watched your competitors take advantage of an opportunity that you did not even know existed. Posted January 01, 2007

A lot of people I meet from “the real world”—at cocktail parties, kids’ sports events, community activities—have a really hard time grasping the abstraction of information management from that of what they do on a day-to-day basis. Posted January 01, 2007
