Merry Christmas to all my readers. Happy Holidays and Compliments of the season
Here are some of the links posted over on the Process Cafe Posterous this week1
(Please note the next Friday Review will not appear on New Year's day, but it will be published on New Year's Eve instead.)
OMG Members Adopt Business Process Modeling Notation 2.0: BPMN Advances - A confirmation that the OMG BPMN 2.0 notation has been officially adopted. What does this mean to you and your daily work?
The 80/20 Rule for Business Processes : Razorleaf.com - I'm not sure I'm there with this concept. The Pareto rule makes sense for a lot of things, but is it appropriate for processes? Surely decision management and business rules should go a long way towards solving the 20% issue? Your thoughts?
Application Platform Strategies Blog: Bring another BPM platform into the shower? - An interesting article analysing the BPM/Lombardi purchase from the point of view of all the tools IBM has recently purchased in this space. Did you know, for example, that since 2002 IBM has purchased 7 former players in the BPM space, some competing on collaboration platforms? Is there a real strategy here?
BPM Conference – Vendors Showcase BPM and EA Capabilities « (BPM) – InSights - A report back from the BPM CON II conference showing four vendors different approaches to BPM.
BPM 2009: Top Ten Impacts - Gartner - Jim Sinur from the Gartner Blog network lists his top ten impacts of BPM in 2009. At first blush these appear to be a little 'motherhood and apple pie' to me. Does anyone have empirical or anecdotal evidence for any of these? (e.g. 'BPM is taking on larger scoped projects delivering bigger benefits than before'?)
I would be interested in your thoughts on this list
Adoption of BPM - Some analysis from AIIM Report - InSights - Some very interesting statistics and analysis here.
Business Process Professionals Crave Business/IT Partnership, Process Frameworks, Skills Development And Peer to Peer Networking - Forrester's focus for BPM in 2010. An interesting article worth 10 minutes of your time to read.
