There are many business process management suites out in the market today, but one thing that they all have in common is that they are all used to model, monitor, integrate and optimize the different processes that all flow across the entire enterprise. Business process management suites work to build on and extend the varied capabilities of the suite by allowing different encapsulated applications to operate in accordance to one another as well as in more discreet units that are part of automation. At the core of this, can be found the suite engine that should be compliant with Oasis 1.1, at the very least.
Business process management suites do not only work to meet the different specifications of compliancy, they also act as a complete solution that can facilitate the entire business process management lifecycle. This also includes in its wide set of features an editor for the design, and can visualize and deploy the different business processes, including BPRE (or Business process runtime environment) required for the exact execution of the business processes that were deployed to them, BPRE logging service (used to track down the real time process execution of activities as well as data for analysis), and BPRE integration that also includes complete open integration code and SPI or service providers interface. The key highlights of a good business management suite aside from being Oasis 1.1 compliant is that it must be fully executable, can easily deploy business logic, connect to plug and play integration using auto code, high performance and excellent throughput and an efficient return on investment.
What is business process management anyway? Well, it is simply a method of scheming and sustaining a workplace that consists of people or individuals working together in clusters to effectively bring about desired objectives and aims. Each member of the organization should know well enough their tasks and roles in the project. Like, for example, the manager is the one responsible in carrying out the planning, staffing, controlling and in leading the tasks.
The business process management system applies to any kind of organization and it is applicable to managers at all management levels. Many business experts believe that in order for an organization to survive in the market, it should have a proper approach on the five managerial functions which include the planning, organizing, staffing, controlling and leading. This is relevant to small and large corporations, industrial and profit or non profit enterprises.
On the other hand, the degree of focus or emphasis is different for each of these process management systems and the approach may differ. Like, for instance, the top management allocates plenty of time on the planning and organizing. Meanwhile the next level managers are into controlling and monitoring the groups involved in the project. Thus, the amount of time spent on each task greatly varies. Business process management systems are flexible and can be modified depending on the company’s needs. The type of system you will incorporate greatly depends on the situation and on the degree of complexity of the project. It is basically performing a task in an organized way to achieve the objectives and expected results.
