Best Practices in BPM and Case Management

The Case for Case Management

By now we've all become familiar with BPM--business process management. It started with simple workflows for transactional processes, then graduated to a more intense management environment that addressed more complex business procedures. But it was always just that: procedure management. The daily in and out of doing the same thing over and over? just in a better way.

Not a bad thing. Still works today.

But we've moved it up a notch. Where BPM was focused on repeatable transactions and processes, the emerging case management trend is intended to address all the unpredictable events that happen every day in business. As BPM "suites" grow to adapt to these elusive changes in the environment, a new category of products has emerged. We call it Case and Business Process Management.

Does that sound like your marketplace? It should, if you want to move forward into this next era of business automation. You can make your mark on this market by participating in the next KMWorld White Paper "Best Practices in BPM and Case Management."

Best Practices in E-Discovery

By now everyone is aware that electronically stored information (ESI) is at the crux of many civil litigations, and can represent the "smoking gun" when it comes down to a fight. The courts are becoming much more knowledgeable about the discovery of electronic records, and the rules that govern the process. But many organizations are either slow or unknowledgeable about how to protect themselves.

At the same time, that ESI can be of great benefit to many business processes. It should be protected, but not wasted. This tension between the legal officers, the IT department and business managers has caused great turmoil in most organizations.

And where there's turmoil, there's opportunity.

Be part of the next KMWorld White Paper, "Best Practices for E-Discovery," and tell the marketplace how YOU can solve this conflict.
