How Goal Seeking Applications Create a Simple Path to Intelligent Software

Thought Leadership Series

Thursday June 18, 2015 11 AM EST

The notion of “intelligence” is now a dominating driver for BPM, as well as many associated areas. Incorporating intelligence into the software machine is echoing for business what we today experience as consumers with services such as Siri and Google, processing vast information to present coherent and relevant knowledge at the moment of demand.

Yet too often the term is thrown into BPM discussions with too little substance behind it. This session leapfrogs the usual marketing hype, to instead demonstrate definitively how to leverage measurable intelligence in an enterprise process platform. Illustrated will be how and why BPM will take the leading role in realizing the value of machine intelligence in the enterprise, cutting through complexity to deliver simple, transparent, and timely decisions and informed actions.

This webinar demonstrates the power of goal-oriented modeling and execution. Dan Neason, of Whitestein North America, will narrate a discussion of how goals simplify modeling, handle problem spaces across the process spectrum, and provide the structure for intelligent software applications. This discussion includes a demonstration of these concepts in the Living Systems Process Suite, created specifically from the concepts of intelligent, agent-based technologies.
