, most of the heavy lifting is still done by IT.
Ultimately, a BPM system
will be able to provide a bridge between the production facility and the media enterprise where applications such as Microsoft's Sharepoint and other information systems will be able to share workflows and access content, given the appropriate permissions.
In processes such as Order-to-Invoice, for example, a third-party BPM system
can more efficiently facilitate heterogeneous automation, thus enabling short and cost-effective implementations across all architecture layers.
Rob Shaphard, assistant vice president of operations, reports once the carrier's IT people learned how to develop the BPM system
, they were able to translate that knowledge to other business units.
Therefore, the use of a BPM system
implies deep and enterprise-wide process analyses; and the inclusion of process performance measurement for continuous process monitoring and improvement (quality).
Yet the improvements in performance achieved as a result of these efforts may be only a fraction of the potential benefits an organization can realize from implementing a BPM system
. Those that want to maximize the benefit from their BPM efforts need to also consider creating a BPM Center of Excellence (CoE).
Also, Tom Malone, the CEO of BPM provider SRC Software, reviews the arguments for, and benefits of, a robust BPM system
Lastly, look at bow the BPM system
