Labeled by industry experts as the “new order,” Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is the chief topic at organizations around the globe. The excitement stems from the realization that SOA technology presents a real opportunity to improve effectiveness at the enterprise level. Business leaders envision an enterprise that can quickly adapt to its changing environment with immediate and complete support from its system resources.

Profiting from Compliance with SmartBPM

Taking a business process management approach to compliance provides the tools to comply with government standards, and also provides the infrastructure you need to better execute the key processes that power your business. Only an approach that fully fuses business rules with business processes can deliver true compliance. This white paper discusses the use of BPM to address compliance mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley – enabling organizations to close the gap between mission and execution, and continually transform the way they do business.

The authors also do a compare and contrast between orchestration and business process management including an examination of where BPEL falls short for BPM solutions.Exclusive members-only chapter from:

Effective SOA Deployment Using An SOA Registry Repository

Today, Service Oriented Architecture [SOA] is being adopted by many IT organizations because it promises to make them more agile and efficient. This is possible, in large part, due to the loosely coupled nature of SOA, which enables service components to evolve without needing costly rework in existing deployments. Such agility and efficiency is also possible due to increased leverage and reuse of existing service components when building new service components.

The Value of BPM Software: A Business and Technical Perspective

Business process management (BPM), and the information technology systems that support it, are defined in many different ways.

Business Optimization: Critical to BPM Success

The key advance of optimization over traditional BPM technologies is the ability to address both the real time optimization of individual processes in flight as well as the ability to identify strategic changes to business processes to drive long term value and cost savings. This dual mission of optimization drives efficiency improvements as well as increased process effectiveness, or alignment with business process goals and performance indicators.
