The BPM Task: Definition & Analysis

Continuation in the series: Process Management Architecture

Forward:

Before diving into technical and architectural details, I need to first cover some basics. I hope this initial review cuts through any lurking confusion on basic BPM terminology, methods, and modeling approach.

 

Process Task Defined

A Task is a modeling element, from the BPMN/CMMN notation, . . . → Read More: The BPM Task: Definition & Analysis

Process Management: Case (CMMN) and BPM (BPMN) Together?

Do I pursue a more holistic approach by purchasing a process-management system that includes both case (CMMN) and BPM (BPMN) capabilities?

Argument for the inclusive (case+BPM) system approach:

1) Assuming we’re heading towards an integrated Case+BPM system (typically the situation when looking at artifact-centric applications). A stand-alone case system tends to increase integration complexity. A . . . → Read More: Process Management: Case (CMMN) and BPM (BPMN) Together?

Process Management Architecture: Overview of Methods, Features, and Capabilities

Introduction

I hope you find this post informative as a general overview of process management architecture. My intent is to help clarify the requirements and differences between process-management and general application design. Importantly, understanding the technical impacts of each significant process-oriented feature to overall enterprise systems and supporting infrastructure.

The goal is finding the best . . . → Read More: Process Management Architecture: Overview of Methods, Features, and Capabilities

Mapping Web-UI to BPM

Forward:

Building rich internet or single page user interfaces for BPM applications isn’t trivial. Development teams representing the various domains (UI, BPM, SOA) have broadly differing needs in terms of requirements, approach, and methodology. For instance, contemporary web technologies and drivers necessitate extreme agility while, on the other hand, BPM and SOA projects enjoy the . . . → Read More: Mapping Web-UI to BPM

A Data-centric View on Traditional BPM

Though some would argue that the data-centric perspective stands apart on its own as a process modeling technique, I believe this approach provides more value in establishing a unique view from within a holistic BPM methodology. The various views or perspectives, each then building upon the other towards the most complete meaning or reflection of . . . → Read More: A Data-centric View on Traditional BPM

BPM Methods: A Change in Software LifeCycle

 

As in business, BPM projects either produce or fail. And, in varying degrees, BPM honestly tries. Maintaining net-value is an effort of direct participation. To remain relevant… one must keep up with the pack – speed counts. This demands agile, quick development iterations and, consequently, a serious weaning from project fat. Cutting corners gets . . . → Read More: BPM Methods: A Change in Software LifeCycle
