What is BPM?

BPM is a flow of business information from strategies through reporting. It is where Business Strategies and Planning meet operational execution and measurement. Data, business processes, and information technology form the architecture for BPM while the associated metrics and analytics support the business strategies.

BPM is a collection of software applications, business processes and measures of business success (Metrics, Key Performance Indicators) that, when combined, enable an organization to understand, execute, and drive business performance.

BPM is the use of Business Intelligence (BI) to derive operational metrics (KPIs, Balanced Scorecards, etc.) to measure company performance.

Why BPM?

BPM allows you to more effectively manage your business. It enables your enterprise to translate business strategies into actionable plans, monitor the execution of the plan, and provide additional insight to manage and improve financial and operational performance.

Corporations are finding that information silos, ineffective performance monitoring, limited reporting capabilities, myopic planning process, and a lack of understanding of business drivers can create a significant planning gap between business strategy and operational execution. Creation of a BPM process will close the gaps, and improve the availability of information for corporate decision-making.

Why BPM Now?

Increased regulations on corporations have created increased pressure to obtain more accurate information more quickly. External disclosure requirements from Sarbanes-Oxley certification of financial statements.

Increased Risk Mitigation activities aimed at finding and fixing high-exposure process gaps and avoiding regulatory sanctions.

Internal requirements to disseminate information throughout the Enterprise at all management levels.
