BPM: A Critical Asset?

Presented by

Peter Beggs, IBM

About this talk

The ability to respond quickly and effectively to changing market conditions has never been more important as a crisis has hit the global economy. What is required is the ability to clearly see business processes and their interaction, and the ability to manage and modify them rapidly as business conditions dictate. Business Process Management (BPM) addresses the first requirement and a flexible IT infrastructure enabled by a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) addresses the second. In this presentation we will examine how other organizations have successfully leveraged BPM to enable a close alignment between IT and business. In such organizations, IT is viewed as a corporate competence that can streamline business processes and drive out costs throughout the organization rather than as a cost centre to be cut back in tough economic times. And we will cover: How BPM can enable better alignment with the business; Taking control -- monitoring applications to dynamically tune business processes; Developing your strategy, including the prioritization of services that will provide the most value for your investment; Driving enterprise value by sensing and responding to patterns of business activity as they happen How to get started -- what can be done with BPM today
