FAMILIARITY WITH SUBJECT:

    ABOUT THIS SESSION:

    So yes, BPMS Technology  is important and maybe even revolutionary. But delivering BPMS solutions remains a challenge as practitioners in the field know only too well. In many ways, BPMS platforms have outpaced BPMS practice. What that means is that while we do have the cutting edge technology platforms to build BPMS solutions, the process of doing so still uses the old ways of IT.

    So how do we do BPMS right? In this session we discuss:

    • Why is a BPMS specific implementation methodology necessary?
    • What are the elements of such a methodology?
    • What kinds of benefits can be driven by the use of an implementation methodology?
    • How would this fit with other methodologies?
