The Many Benefits of Dynamic Business Process Management

The Many Benefits of Dynamic Business Process Management

June 04, 2013 0 Comments

Regardless of the size of your business, or the industry it is in, dynamic business process management (BPM) is at the core of every responsive business and modern IT infrastructure.

By integrating BPM into your business applications, you can extract old hard-coded processes and workflows and replace them with process models that enable common applications to be rapidly tailored for and by the consumers of the applications—ultimately making your business more operationally responsive.

Here are a few other ways dynamic BPM can help improve processes, save costs, increase compliance, and avoid litigation.

  • Process-orientation with BPM technology enables business and IT groups to better align by developing enterprise-wide processes that span multiple functions. BPM can offer structured (even prescriptive) processes to streamline work. Additionally BPM allows for vastly improved visibility into the state of the business at varying degrees of detail.
  • Visual representation of and end-to-end process serves as “common ground” for early prototyping and simulation. With OpenEdge BPM none of the semantics are lost when iteratively moving through the process (i.e. the process model stays intact when it’s transformed into an executable process).
  • With BPM, companies can retain their core capabilities and IP, which are represented in OpenEdge procedural code, and integrate those capabilities into a larger business process. As volatility in the business landscape potentially increases over time, making changes to a BPM model is significantly faster and less error-prone that having to drop down to code.
  • Cost savings and compliance safety nets can be achieved with a BPM approach. By embedding rules into the BPM flow, you can ensure that tasks are completed within defined time windows and that work performed is completely audited for “after-the-event” scrutiny.
