The Content, the Mobility and the Security

A paradigm shift is taking place in computing and the workplace. This paradigm shift is the new "wild west" of bring your own device (BYOD) to work.

Best Practices in BPM & 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.” And you can do that by contacting:
