Model Driven BPM: How BPM Enables a Higher Level of Business Agility

Enterprises have to demonstrate business innovation while being responsive to customer wants and needs in today’s competitive marketplace. Business process management (BPM) software can help companies to streamline and optimize business processes for increased efficiency and reduced downtime.

Organizations using BPM can increase ROI and achieve operational excellence through reengineering business processes with the help of BPM software.

Model driven BPM is the next wave in enterprise BPM approaches, and allows organizations to deliver on the premise of application modernization intelligently and effectively. A model driven BPM approach brings lesser complexity for the line of business (LOB) stakeholders, faster development times for IT, quicker response times for business process changes, lower costs, and better collaboration between LOB and IT.

This white paper examines how model driven BPM lets organizations prepare and build for change rather than invest in traditional development techniques that can be resource intensive, expensive, and time consuming. The paper covers the challenges facing enterprises today and drivers for enterprise agility, then takes a deeper look at model driven BPM and its benefits.

How can BPM enable a higher level of business agility and deliver on the premise of intelligent process management driving operational excellence? The answer likely lies in a model driven framework, to integrate disparate systems and drastically cut down the time to create, improve, and optimize functional business process models that help the enterprise adapt to dynamic market conditions.  Read More
