Welcome to the Business Process Management resource center !
Business Process Management (BPM) automates and streamlines the many processes that are the lifeblood of an organization. From processing an online order to approving a mortgage application, BPM provides an independent process layer that controls how people and technology interact to get things done. Business Process Management Systems (BPMS) provide the capability to design, deploy, execute, analyze and optimize end-to-end business processes. They coordinate the flow of tasks, access to resources and the exchange of information among employees, customers and partners. They capture information about the execution of the process to enable continuous process improvement.
