Surviving BPM and a Lesson on Racing

The image is getting across the finish line in less-than-optimal conditions. As first-timer BPM projects go, let’s think of engine smoke and a hopeful driver.

I need to remind myself on this point: not everything lands in one piece when focused on winning. Vision is just about everything in this race. Parts wear out, pieces . . . → Read More: Surviving BPM and a Lesson on Racing

On The Direction of IBM’s Business Process Manager – Advanced

Quick Forward: In keen interest of fewer keystrokes-per-noun, I’ll refer to IBM Business Process Manager Advanced as “iBPM”.
