What is iBPM (Intelligent Business Process Management) | BP Logix

In a previous entry, we spoke about how digital transformers, and the digital transformation movement, have evolved the roles and definitions of BPM products, and whether BPM is even an appropriate title to hang over its increasingly complex and wide-spread applications. The term iBPM, or intelligent business process management, is an attempt to encapsulate this trend.

What is iBPM?

Gartner has included iBPM as a unique ranking category since 2012. As they put it, “The intelligent business process management suite (iBPMS) market is the natural evolution of the earlier BPMS market, adding more capabilities for greater intelligence within business processes. Capabilities such as validation (process simulation, including “what if”) and verification (logical compliance), optimization, and the ability to gain insight into process performance have been included in many BPMS offerings for several years. Intelligent business process management suites have added enhanced support for human collaboration such as integration with social media, mobile-enabled process tasks, streaming analytics and real-time decision management.”

It is interesting to note, however, that Gartner has demurred from including iBPM in its online IT glossary. Perhaps the term is here to stay, or perhaps it is merely a placeholder until a more long-lasting title sticks to the expansion of BPM’s new, overarching roles. It is a challenge to define something whose capacity is constantly growing, and whose end form has yet to be determined.

BP Logix has fully embraced the concept—if not necessarily the title—of iBPM, a vision that has resulted in Process Director being included within the Gartner Magic Quadrant in the intelligent business process management category for the past three years.
