The last 12 months in the Business Process Management (BPM) market has seen more changes, innovation and new development than any time in the past decade. Among the most pronounced trends is the sea-change from vertical “stacks” to more comprehensive BPM platforms, with data-driven capabilities able to support the full spectrum of process execution styles. This is rapidly expanding the envelope for new areas of knowledge work addressable by BPM, often in areas previously thought of as out of reach.
As the first of a three-part series, Nathaniel Palmer will present the state of the BPM market for 2013-2014, including current trends, considerations for adoption, and what the next 12 months mean for any organization currently using or otherwise contemplating BPM. Additionally, one of the most talked about recent events in BPM was the August 2013 acquisition of Cordys by OpenText. In Part I of this series, Nathaniel will provide a spotlight on this event within the context of the industry and how it fits within the current market direction. Nathaniel will also facilitate a presentation by executives involved with both firms to discuss the nature of the acquisition, and what this means for their customers going forward.
