The Business Process Management discipline enables organizations to be more efficient, more effective, and more capable of change while managing time and costs. In this discipline, processes are viewed as strategic assets of an organization that must be understood, managed, and improved to deliver value-added products and services to process consumers. In a typical organization, there are IT Systems in place to solve specific functional areas. However the at the human level, the work is not well-controlled and there is poor end-to-end visibility into the entire pro-cess that spans humans and systems.
IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) provides a platform that helps process participants gain enterprise-wide visibility of business processes, so that improvements can be made by those who know these processes best. IBM BPM encourages collaboration and supports strong governance of process change. It provides a common software platform for process improvement and BPM lifecycle governance, offering the power and robustness required for mission-critical enterprise solutions while combining the simplicity required for business engagement through collaboration. Built-in analytics and search capabilities are designed to help improve and optimize business processes now and in the long run. IBM Business Process Manager includes tooling and runtime for process design, execution, monitoring, and optimization.
