BPMI and OMG merge BPM interests

A press release from BPMI and OMG announced recently that they’re merging their BPM standards activities:

The combined activities will continue BPMI’s and OMG’s ground-breaking work and focus on all aspects of Business Process Management, including:

  • Refinement and promotion of BPMI’s Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) as the basis for business modeling,
  • Delivery of BPMI’s Business Process Definition Metamodel (BPDM), Business language, vocabulary, and rules,
  • BIM (Business Information Management),
  • EAI (Enterprise Application Integration),
  • B2B (Business to Business collaboration),
  • Web Services Information and Processes,
  • Security Policy and Management, and
  • Refinement, promotion and education of the principles, approaches and tenets of Business Process Management within the broader business community.

OMG will continue its tradition of innovation by integrating and reusing complementary business integration and web services standards such as WS-BPEL from OASIS, WSDL and XML Schema from W3C.

BPM standards just became one degree less confusing.
