BPMS > COTS?

Theo Priestly: Is the BPMS mightier than the COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf software)?

With the advent of similar suites such as Bonitasoft, Outsystems and Iceberg that allow organisations to build business process based applications directly, and others that offer the same web-based style workflow creation, could these BPMS tools eventually replace the more expensive COTS (Commercially Off The Shelf) software alternatives as they mature ?

Theo asks if this is Build or Buy – but I’ve seen many firms look at this as “Build vs. BPM+Build vs. Buy” – where BPM+Build is the middle-ground, leveraging several more simplistic transactional services and wrapping them into processes that make sense to the business.
