BPM and Security: DRM & BPM

Login or register below to view this webcast

This webcast – the third in a five-part series – will review the findings of BPMInstitute.org's State of Business Process ManagementSM Research with a specific focus on the security issues, challenges and solutions associated with BPM. It will explore the desired integration among Document Security services, Digital Rights Management (DRM) and Business Process Management (BPM). It will describe what strategies are common to enterprises currently achieving the greatest benefit from their Security and BPM initiatives.

In July 2006, BPMInstitute.org initiated a survey of its 24,000 member community to gain an understanding of how enterprises across a range of industries are pursuing business process innovation and improvement and to what degree these activities are strategically aligned to the companies' business transformation and growth objectives.

The survey obtained critical insight into how corporations approach business process management and improvement initiatives, evaluate and acquire BPM infrastructure and deployment expertise, and manage and deploy BPM-enabled solutions. In addition, it examined current and future requirements, deployment stages and time frames, budgets and allocations, and perceived benefits and drivers.

The survey surfaced business process management trends and established benchmarks for enterprises to evaluate their process improvement programs against industry best practices. It learned what role BPM is playing for improving composite application creation around business processes, how process-driven and rules-driven application customization has been improved, what metrics are being designed to measure business results from BPM initiatives, and what specific technologies, methodologies and standards are being using for BPM projects.
