I spoke briefly last week at the Forrester Technology Leadership Forum about BPM, BI and BR, and had a great response from a couple of the business rules vendors who were in attendance. I’ll be expanding on that topic in a few weeks at the Business Rules Forum in Orlando, where the conference focus this year is on enterprise decisioning, especially as it relates to BPM and BI. I’ll be talking about how BPM, BR and BI can be combined to make a process improvement platform that?s greater than the sum of its parts, by:
- Separating the business rules from the business processes to provide greater agility. This allows rules to be modified independently of processes.
- Adding business intelligence to business processes to provide greater visibility. This exposes process statistics to business stakeholders.
Organizations are embracing business process management to improve their business processes. However, automation of processes isn?t the whole picture: processes must be both agile and transparent to reap the full benefits of BPM, which makes business rules and enterprise decisioning important topics for BPM practitioners.
