BPM & Workflow

INTRODUCTION

Today’s organisations seek to gain a competitive advantage through the use of improved business processes supported by technology. Throughout the later half of this decade Australian organisations are turning to the new wave of BPM tools to provide the necessary innovation required to achieve these ambitious but necessary goals.

There is no doubt that the new wave of BPM tools offered today promise far greater gains for a business than were previously possible, these demands can be summarised as follows:.

  1. Quicker deployment times
  2. Less skilled labour to use the tools
    The ability to reduce the complexity and cost of the business requirements mapping (i.e. cross coding)
  3. The ability to design the business processes, sub processes, workflows & business logic from a single GUI
  4. A GUI that enables the business to comprehend and provide input beyond the high level design of the business processes
  5. A tool that can configure the processes, workflows and logic typically without the need to write code
  6. A deployment model with tools that provides a low cost and low risk phased delivery of a solution


IMPLEMENTATION

A BPM implementation is likely to present far-reaching implications for your organisation, and will require considerable preparation before getting started. Beyond these challenges many companies often struggle to provide the necessary detail of their processes to be able to model them effectively; deploying a BPM solution into such a situation can obviously cause more confusion than resolution to the business challenges nominated for improvement.

Lonispace has found that a successful approach to this situation is to agree on the processes destined for BPM initiatives but remain flexible regarding opportunities for additional process improvement and the approach required. To provide this flexibility Lonispace has developed models and solutions that dramatically reduce the risk and costs of implementing these new processes and approaches. Lonispace defined a six-step modelling approach that embodies:

  1. The design and model of the business process
  2. The modelling of the sub processes
  3. The modelling of the workflows
  4. The mapping and definition of the business logic
  5. The design and definition of the integration, messaging and data components
  6. And the implementation of the final solution

Our Process Management Model is one of our newly developed models based upon emerging trends of increased collaboration between business and IT when defining business processes and business logic external to core applications. We utilise TIBCO products to implement our BPM modelling approach.
