Business Process Management's Tools To Improve Workflow


Well, if that was workflow, what is business process management? Well, the BPM industry evolved out of the workflow management systems industry and for a long time, people said, “Oh, that’s just old wine in new bottles.” It’s workflow with a whole bunch of adjectives like transparent, agile, that sort of thing.


In fact, the way I think of it is that harried human editor, how about you give that human all kinds of great tools to improve the workflow, either after the fact or to monitor the workflow? That’s called business activity monitoring.

By the way, that computer right there, that’s the Altair 8800. It is the first PC. It ignited the PC revolution and it was invented and developed and sold by a pediatrician. I just love to find those connections between the IT and the medical side.
