    This IBM® Redpaper™ publication describes the concept of business process management (BPM) and specifically focuses on the role of the process architect within BPM. This paper covers in detail how to design business processes and how to enhance those processes for automated business process execution on a BPM platform. It addresses the requirements to successfully drive BPM programs in terms of what process knowledge, methodology, and technology needs to exist or be developed within an organization.

    Within the context of this paper, the process architect is defined as having the responsibility to model, analyze, deploy, monitor, and continuously improve business processes. This paper defines the role of the process architect as the driver of creating and improving processes and as a key bridge between business and process focused technology.

    This paper is intended for anyone who is involved in creating and improving BPM within an organization.
