Putting BPM in Context: Now and in the Future Pyke, WfMC Chair, United Kingdom
This paper looks at the various technologies that make up the burgeoning Business Process Management (BPM) market and explores the impact that new methods of deployment and design will have on products and how those changes could affect end users. The paper also provides non-technical readers with a better understanding of what the all encompassing term “Business Process Management” means by explaining several BPM-related terms in detail.
