In this video, BonitaSoft CEO Miguel Valdés Faura describes what he sees the Business Process Management (BPM) trends will be for 2013.
Trend 1: BPM will extend the longevity of legacy systems
Enterprises have invested millions of dollars in critical infrastructures like IBM mainframes and SAP systems. The pace of change is only increasing so instead of gutting out these expensive legacy systems, we’re seeing BPM increasingly being used to provide a bridge between disparate systems that have traditionally been siloed.
Trend 2: BPM will help make sense of Big Data
The amount of data is ever increasing. Parsing and making sense of this data will be the next challenge. BPM systems can intelligently organize data based on predetermined rules to make Big Data more useful.
Trend 3: BPM will make inroads into new kinds of processes and services
The rise of new processes and services means another added layer of complexity as well as another opportunity for BPM systems to offer increased efficiency. New services are always being off-loaded to the cloud.
Trend 4: BPM is becoming more of a PaaS
Traditional thinking posits BPM is a SaaS, however, this is not what we’re seeing with our customers. BPM is increasingly becoming a strategic tool in aligning and making business processes more efficient based on hundreds of native connectors that can speak to a myriad of disparate systems that were once siloed.
