Dave Duggal attempts a take-down of BPMN in a comment on Keith Swenson's blog, concluding with:
"There is a reason why business leaders are suddenly have wandering eyes, they don?t think BPMN is the vehicle for the component-based distributed future."
I humbly refer you to Bruce Silver's blog for a quick rebuttal.? The market is adopting BPMN more than ever, and at an increasing pace.? Better to spend your energies figuring out how to make BPMN more effective (in combination with whatever other techniques you recommend) rather than making your recommended approaches an either-or proposition.? I think I've been hearing about this component-based distributed future since CORBA. I'm all for distributed and component-based, but I don't hear an either-or proposition, and this doesn't sound like business-leader language.
The question business leaders ask is will BPM and BPMN yield ROI? and the answer is yes.
