Red Hat’s New JBoss Enterprise BRMS 5.3 Business Process Management Software - a look at the current offering and future roadmap.

Founded in 1993, Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT) is easily the most commercially successful open source vendor, and the first to exceed $1B in software-related sales (which it did in 2012). Red Hat entered the middleware arena in 2006, with its acquisition of JBoss and the related community projects around the “JavaBeans Open Source Software Application Server” (or simply JBoss for short). JBoss was then, and remains today, the most widely-adopted open source Java EE App Server.

Should you follow a pragmatic approach with BPM initiatives? After nearly a decade of market research on what drives BPM implementations, we have found the most common answer for what prevents BPM projects from advancing is consistently “lack of sponsorship” by upper management (cited by 25% of respondents to our most recent survey -- more than twice the frequency of any other answer, and consistent with similar studies we have performed over the last 10 years.)

Why the lack of sponsorship? The basic requirement and typical challenge in achieving project sponsorship (true of BPM as with another area) is building a credible argument that demonstrates value while keeping risks in check. This can prove a daunting task for any project of substantial size. The answer is to take a pragmatic approach, demonstrate positive results, and use these proof-points to build a business case.
