BPM Quotes of the Week - January 17, 2018

Nathaniel Palmer"We enter the year with tailwinds rather than headwinds. We face both exciting times and times of threatening uncertainty – and address it with more momentum and a far clearer direction than ever before. This will not be a year of pivoting, but it will be an inflexion point. I am as excited for 2018 as I was throughout 2017."

"NoCode is the next evolutionary step, and not having it is a non-starter. The challenge is, how do create NoCode solutions that *link forward* to the next generation on complexity that our customers require, and don't box them into a vendor or capacity solution?"
-Max Young

"Definition of a good programming language - 'simple things are simple, difficult things are possible'."
-Dr. Alexander Samarin

"The low code market will start to segment out as adoption increases...I think no code solutions will be used for the tactical things that just need to get done (that IT doesn't always have time to get to), and the more robust low code platforms will be used to implement, maintain, and change the more sophisticated processes at the core of the digital business transformation."
-Rachel Brennan

"If you think Low-code or no-code solutions improve speed and agility, then you probably want them. FYI, Sharepoint and Lotus Notes were low-code solutions. So was Hypercard (no-code?). Let's try to keep it in perspective."
-Scott Francis

"Our experience with both writing our own code, and buying software off the shelf, has shown those options to be expensive, inflexible, and unresponsive. Low/no code addresses these pain points while providing the integration, analytics, and mobility that are critical to effective digital business applications."
-E. Scott Menter

"BPM approach allows to harmonize enterprise architecture in such a way that business processes on each level optimally exist and run in their respective low code environments. Importantly, the nature of this low-code niche is entirely different for each process."
-Boris Zinchenko

"While the PCF (process classification framework) is not required by any means to measure business processes, I do believe it saves time and allows for enhanced, long term transparency when one can rely on a longstanding, established and up-to-date framework."
-Kay Winkler

"So what KPIs are best for any given inventory of processes? How about anything that might be a leading indicator of that on which you depend to live another day. How else are you going to manage?"
-John Morris

"With regard to the organization of processes, this is best done in a free-form-search knowledgebase that supports aliases such that the same process can be parked under any number of trees at any level in each particular tree hierarchy.(i.e. multiple hierarchies), where all processes can be viewed/accessed at one computer screen."
-Karl Walter Keirstead
