Business Process Management

Business Process Management and Rules

Business Process Management (BPM) is the process-centric approach to planning, managing, and automating business. Typical technologies used to implement BPM lifecycle include process design, and modeling; process execution (workflow); content management; enterprise integration; collaboration, business activity monitoring and Business Rule Technology.

Streamlining Business Processes with Dynamic Decision Points

As business users define processes, they may find that defining all the permutations around decision points can create a workflow that is unwieldy, both in terms of understanding and ability to maintain, execute, and optimize.

By embedding every decision point within a workflow, organizations are not only creating complex, hard to maintain processes, they’re unintentionally embedding decision logic—thus moving away from the vision of SOA.

To streamline business processes, decision logic must be managed differently from flow logic. The underlying rules, logic, and calculations that drive that decision point can be maintained separately from the workflow, by the subject matter experts. Business rules technology brings flexibility to complement the power of BPM.

By externalizing the decision logic from the workflow, business rule technology can simplify a workflow and make the logic easier to update. Using business rule technology with your BPM tool can help streamline the most complex business processes.
