Converting operational applications and BPM tools from cost centres to value providers

by Asomi Ithia on 23-Nov-2017 10:42:00


Organisations implement business processes either through standalone BPM tools or as part of applications such as ERPs and CRMs. Over time as changes are made to these tools and applications, process visibility and understanding can be lost, primarily because knowledge of the changes is stored in peoples’ heads (and not documented).

But you soon get stuck: you find that the company’s existing processes and systems for creating and sharing intellectual property and knowledge are clumsy and inefficient. Models can only be created locally and shared via email, and there is no central location for storage and access.
