Deciding on a BPM and Workflow Vendor
After many rounds of internal reviews, building requirements and validating various BPM vendors and their BPM software and workflow software solutions, I have chosen a BPM vendor to implement BPM software and workflow software across our company. This is important because I have made the case for why it is so badly needed. And in the course of doing that, I have many important people watching the project to ensure it delivers results and value.
The review and validation process for any new product is always challenging. You are given a lot of attention from potential BPM vendors, but more often than not, they just want to tell you about their product (and are not very good listeners.) Sure, it is fun to be courted, but the attention wanes quickly when you realize that some of the BPM vendors aren't being honest with you, or you discover, after a big investment of time, that their product simply cannot deliver what you need.
