Praise for 2010 BPM and Workflow Handbook (read full reviews here in PDF)

Five Stars!…I found inspiration for current debates in the business, for instance in the chapter on knowledge processes. The handbook is spot-on for the hot potatoes of our industry…
Jesper Juul Andersen, General Manager at A. P. Moller - Maersk A/S, Denmark.

Five Stars!I found the section on Business Intelligence in process management particularly relevant as the objective of BPM is to “get better at getting work done”. We can only get better if we know what to measure, how to measure and how to interpret and use the results. The article on Predictive BPM makes an interesting read. I have been in this industry for more than 10 years and I still found something new or useful in every article.
Pieter van Schalkwyk, Managing Director, eXomin Pty Ltd., Australia

Five Stars!The environment is changing so rapidly around identifying and driving value through enterprise transformation, that this handbook is essential to present ideas, and encourage thought and action.  I think it’s extremely useful for anyone planning to stay current, at a fraction of the cost of a comparable seminar. 
Steven Jones, Jones Consulting Group, LLC, United States

Five Stars!I would strongly recommend this book to all BPM Technical and Business Analyst Practitioners because reading this will help in understanding how BPM is evolving and is becoming the most important aspect in all industries...
Soma Sengupta, Switzerland

Five Stars!From the practitioner’s perspective the handbook provides a perfect balance between a better understanding of the business outcomes available through this business technology and the architectural strategies and approaches to be adopted for the design of this important and necessary technology response. 
Ron Perry, Principal Consultant, InfoBis (Asia Pacific), Australia

Why focus on Business Intelligence?

Keith Swenson, WfMC Vice Chair says, "Regardless of whether you design a fixed definition in advance for a predictable process, or whether a case manager extends the plan for an unpredictable process while working, the results can be analyzed with process intelligence technology. Retrospective analysis can tell us if the processes are going according to plan, and can tell us if the plan itself is a good idea. In cases where work was performed without the guidance of a process, process mining, also known as automatic process discovery, can tell us what the process has actually been without having to involve people in lengthy, and error prone, interviews. Process mining can tell us what is efficient and inefficient about an existing work pattern, and it can give us a jump-start on new BPM implementation efforts when no previous process definition exists.

"Business (Process) Intelligence is a field that is just beginning to show very promising results. Eleven independent chapters bring us views of this topic. After all, in the end, it is process analytics that keeps us all honest. Because it can measure performance, Business Process Intelligence is a critical part of delivering on the promise of improving performance of the business."


Table of Contents


In 2010 we include a special spotlight on Business Intelligence to illustrate how Business Process Management (BPM) and Business Intelligence (BI) are increasingly intertwined. Linking business intelligence and business process management creates stronger operational business intelligence. Users seek more intelligent business process capabilities in order to remain competitive within their fields and industries. BPM vendors realize they need to improve their business processes, rules and event management offerings with greater intelligence or analytics capabilities.
