BPM Quotes of the Week - January 25, 2017

"The development of IT-solutions does not keep pace with the changing business architectures and the total cost of ownership of IT-systems for enterprises is high. These problems cannot be solved unless we change the approach to the design and use of business architecture."
-Dr. Alexander Samarin & Oleg Zaharchuk
"WHY and WHAT of the processes don’t change so quickly. HOW and WHO do."
-Michel van den Hoven
From the BPM Forum
"Digital Business Platform = system of experiences (portal) + system of engagement (process/case engine) + system of records (erp) + system of insights (bi)"
"The basic idea of BPMS is still great & valid: To cover the whole BPM lifecycle from modeling to automation to reporting. However, if you look at the feature/functionality focus of BPMS products today, customers often perceive them as 'application development platforms' or even middleware, i.e. a technical platform that IT people use to build applications. Unfortunately, the business user community only plays a small role in this picture."
"Process is essential to digital along with other forms of work management."
"The fundamental mission of BPMS system is to stay on top level of enterprise IT hierarchy and streamline enterprise operations from a business viewpoint. Exactly for this reason, it is unlikely that BPMS as such will be ever able to become a universal digital business platform for process execution."
"Corporate Unified Business Execution (CUBE) platform. BPM-suite tools is an essential component of such a platform to enable agile/extreme delivery of solutions. If BPM done correctly then a lot of existing 'enterprise' applications are implemented as a set of processes."
-Dr. Alexander Samarin
"My fear is that BPM via BPMS-embedded-in-DBP will be second rate BPM, with all the attendant frustrations and sub-optimizations with which the BPM community is familiar."
Is the BPM Industry Ready for a Next 'Round' of Standardization?
"We all know that the current generation of BPM technology hints a greatness, but leaves our clients hungry for more. Business Agility is still our goal, and we've caught glimpses of it, but it's still to hard to reach it."
"History shows that standardisation has a negative effect on promoting evolution to a mature even commoditization of any product and this certainly applies to enterprise software!"
"BPMN did a great job at creating a standardization across the board even if some of the new platforms don't use it. If the market can collectively look inward a solve a pressing need, then standardization is always a good option. Hell, that's what good process is all about isn't it? Creating a standard ways for a business to do things?"
"Not sure we've recovered from the last round."
