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?

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

Process Modeling or Software Development (continued)

Which is the best path for building out new process models? Following the path of least resistance is your best bet in most circumstances. There are a few grey areas in this answer which I’ll cover later – the key point is that guidance is focused on rapid turnaround on process models. Advantage being that . . . → Read More: Process Modeling or Software Development (continued)

BPM Best Practice Series: Process Management versus Software Development

BPM projects require a new approach as their work extends beyond traditional IT boundaries. In taking on this work, our methodologies require adjustment and tolerance as what was once a typically predictable path now leads us wandering through a seaming maze of new discoveries, obstacles, and political minefields. . . . → Read More: BPM Best Practice Series: Process Management versus Software Development
