BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT
Business Process Management (BPM) is a business discipline with the objective to improve an organization’s efficiency through the systematic management of their business processes.
Their objective is to improve the performance of any organization based on the continuous improvement of their business processes. This methodology is being implemented in organizations of all sectors, due to the operational efficiency that it creates and to the adaptability that it allows when facing new context and client requirements.
The importance of technology
A BPM solution provides the infrastructure that an organization needs to translate their strategic decisions into concrete plans of action. Different from the implementations used in the past, BPM covers the corporation as a whole, optimizing the PROCESSES FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END. This allows for controlled and continuous evolution by reducing operating risks.
The most significant contribution that an organization gets through the implementation of a BPM system is REACTION CAPACITY upon obtaining VISIBILITY in real time at the operating level of the structure. This visibility allows Management to react effectively and quickly before a problem or an opportunity. This way, BPM reduces costs and improves the productivity of any organization.
BPM & SOA. A competitive advantageWhat is SOA?
SOA is an architectural style that models the company after a collection of services displayed on the network. Each business functionality is published and accessible in the service format. Through processes, this allows fluid integration with different information sources connected to a collection of multiple providers, internal and external of the organization, for the consumption of services, with the possibility for continuous improvement. To do so, the architecture is based on standard protocols that guarantee independent interfaces. Is the current IT architecture of your organization giving you support and adding value to the business of your company? Could this maintain future objectives?
What does your company have to do for the systems to accompany your strategy and transform them into a competitive advantage?
Currently, companies tend to foment the disorderly proliferation of applications, unplanned and taking care of immediate needs. Many times this happens without realizing how negative this can be for the future of your operations. Adopting service oriented architecture (SOA) together with the implementation of process management may be the best option to answer these questions.
SOA is becoming a model that organizations can use to construct corporate architecture that favors the interaction of applications, transforming systems into a true competitive advantage.
The services are installed for the first time and remain available (without use) until they are called upon. This automatic, precise and highly flexible integration provides important savings in costs of any organizational outline.
Making the processes flexible and automated so that they create value in a company increases the competitive advantages.
