Business Process Automation RFI

Business process management (BPM) needs can vary widely, from top-down business transformation initiatives to smart process applications to enterprise resource planning, marketing, social and more. With this breadth and depth of reach, BPM - and BPA, business process automation - are more than a couple of buzzwords, they are absolutely mission critical.

To get the most out of a BPM or BPA solution, organizations need to select platforms that are quick to deploy, agile once in service and show measurable value over time.

There are plenty of offerings on the market today, but, how do you compare them when they offer such varying capabilities?

We've created a resource to help you efficiently compare BPM and BPA solutions by identifying the most important considerations.

A Better BPM

BPM suites add value but are often monolithic systems that take a high level of knowledge and training to implement and use, causing upfront disruption that can adversely affect the business. This also makes these systems slow to make an impact and difficult to use for one-off needs – creating challenges for companies that need quick results. Organizations need agile platforms that are faster to market and provide deeper value. To this end, business process application suites provide flexible solutions that support your full range of BPM needs, including top-down initiatives, smart process applications, and the need for rapid app development platforms that can be used by IT and business users alike.

Process Innovation In Real Time

Quality processes are central to the success of any large organization, and all business units should play by the same rules. While this is certainly true, each department is bound to have unique requirements which is why a one-size-fits-all approach to business processes doesn't work. This white paper uses the example of one department that typically considers itself the exception to business process standardization, the legal department. Readers will learn how solid business processes enabled this department to improve its work involving customer transactions and its effort to make business units more successful.

Your first BPM process - quick, measurable and... contagious

BPM programs live or die on the success of the pilot project, which in turn depends on choosing the right first process. Since BPM initiatives involve deep cultural changes, the pilot project has to deliver results that are:
  • Quick: to gain management approval for wider rollout
  • Measurable: to justify further investments
  • Contagious: to trigger widespread user adoption
  • Extensible: to enable the benefits to be felt across teams, departments and processes.
This whitepaper provides guidance on selecting the optimal business process (or group of processes) for a BPM pilot project. By taking this approach, project owners can be confident of a low-risk BPM initiative that generates sufficient momentum to kick off a successful companywide BPM program.
