Will the Next Big Innovations in BPM Come from the Mobile Experience? "It will help in the long run by finally breaking the coupling between the process definition and the UX."

-E. Scott Menter

"Mobile in BPM is a typical distributed computing problem – what functionality to be executed in a mobile node and what functionality to be executed in a server node. Any human task execution, inbox, some stats, etc. are perfect for mobile nodes. Thus a set of standard API for BPM-suite tools will be very useful."
-Dr. Alexander Samarin

"Mobile capabilities merge BPM with the real world where everybody can view and ‘sense’ it outside of traditional computer environments. No doubt, all future development of BPM will be closely related with mobile experience."
-Boris Zinchenko

-Ian Gotts

"With all the different business processes that currently exist is there a platform that can handle them all equally well then the answer would be No."
