Here are some of the links posted over on the Process Cafe Espresso Shots this week1
Where Business Process Meets 2.0 - An interesting post from Susan Scrupski on the usage of SAP's new 12Sprints platform in the business.
Pegasystems says Agile BPM this way comes - SOA Talk - Some advice from Pegasystems on smaller, more focused process projects.
Salesforce.com enables business process building for cloud : WHAT?? - I'm really in two minds about this. One the one hand I like the concept that process design should be easy and user focused rather than IT focused. On the other hand Salesforce.com are not a process design company, nor is it always feasible to allow users to design their processes. If it was this easy, why hasn't it been done before? I would be interested to hear anyone's thoughts on this. (See below for information about a post discussing this topic)
Business Process When Implementing UC is not a One & Done Project - Unified Communications Strategies - Some common sense information and advice linked to unified Communication strategies and business process work. A lot of this can probably be summarised by the phrase 'Outside In'
COMING NEXT WEEK on the Process Cafe:
'The Tool is not the Process' - An article about confusing 'what we manage processes with' and 'what the processes themselves are'. If all you have is a hammer then every problem is a nail.
'Should the users define their own processes?' - My thoughts on whether tools which put process definition directly in the hands of end users are a good idea or not.
