In January the BPM.com forum posed the question "Which parts of BPM are Dead".? My first reaction was "not this again", but actually a couple of good responses.
First, Bogdan Nafornita weighs in with one items that might be dead:? The zero-code myth - and one item that might not be born yet: superficial data modeling.
Second, Emiel Kelly: "the idea that BPM is a project -> No, it's daily business." and "the idea that BPM = Automation -> Partly it might be, but managing processes needs more than automation."? I guess this just proves you can still learn something even while beating a dead horse (so to speak).
