We’re not the only ones…

Apparently we’re not the only ones who get annoyed reading all this “BPM is Dead” stuff

So now that we are clear on what BPM is, is there really anyone out there who gives any credibility to proclamations of the death of BPM?

I believe that BPM is one of the most important activities every organization that wishes to survive must engage in.  Only a monopoly could possibly survive without pursuing BPM – and even then increases in compliance requirements and complexity would drive costs that would be hard to pass on.

From where I sit, I see a growing need, a growing understanding of the domain, and growing recognition by business leaders of the ability and necessity of BPM to meet their business needs.  I believe that BPM is never going to die because businesses will always be looking for ways to operate faster, better, and cheaper.

In the case of BPM not only is the obituary premature, but it will never be written.

 

Good stuff from our friends at iGrafx.

    I agree with some of the iGrafx sentiments, but there is a worrying comment in the PS. They talk about being BPM being a management discipline, but in the PS there is this statement “The market will evolve and the label may change, but I for one would be willing to take the bet that people will be looking to build applications faster, better, and cheaper for a long time to come too.” So does BPM=app builder?
