What is Business Process Management [BPM]?

Recently, there have been many attempts at defining BPM. As with most words or expressions, over time BPM has picked up connotations [an associated or secondary meaning] that imply complexity. In reality, BPM is not about complexity. It is not about software. And, it is not about SOA [service oriented architecture].

Overcoming “islands of information”

The PROMISE project demonstrators taught us that each one of them included many already existing “islands of information” such as ERP systems, warehouse management systems (WMS), process control systems, field databases, sensors, and of course, at beginning of life (BOL), the “traditional” PLM applications.

Change management v/s change management

I have been pushing for innovation and change in every organisation I have ever worked in. It has always been an uphill battle in both directions, up and down the organisational hierachy.

Playing with a new piece of software the other day which was heralded as facilitating change management, it suddenly dawned on me that whilst on the one side we have people trying to manage the (ever more complex) operational aspects of change, on the other side there are people like me who wish to change the way things are done.

CL2M in the data center

An interesting application for CL2M is the data center. As cloud computing and managed applications are taking off in these thrifty times, the size of data centers is growing and additional possibilities for saving are being looked for. Here is an interesting video on a data center RFID project:
