BPM vs Custom Development

By BP Logix on Aug 12, 2017 4:13:00 PM


Programmers: I love 'em. In fact, I was one, many years ago, when the Internet was a friendly place where everybody knew your hostname. In those days, if you needed a computer to do something, you hired a programmer for software development. Off-the-shelf BPM software development was limited to the most very basic commodity tools, such as word processing. Not only was locally developed business process management software the default choice, companies viewed their home-grown custom applications as a competitive advantage. I recall one very large firm in the early 90s that even wrote its own programming language because, well, I guess none of the dozens of existing languages quite fit the bill.

Organizational Change and BPM, Part 2: Do You Have a Process-Focused Organization?

By BP Logix on Nov 21, 2013 11:14:00 AM

In today’s competitive market, you, or we,  would be hard pressed to find executives who do not want their companies to be better organized and more efficient. Most C-level leaders pepper their speeches and memos with messages that implore employees to find smarter ways of working, techniques that will maximize their business process improvement efforts and reduce or even eliminate repetitive tasks. The hope is that somewhere between "working smarter" and “a validated bottom-line improvement” some actions will occur that make that vision a reality. Unfortunately, that middle ground between desires and outcomes is usually where the best laid plans often go astray.
