The BPM/SOA Community of Practice* is conducting a BPM practitioner panel at next week at IBM’s Impact Conference. The session is Tuesday, May 4, at 1:30 PM local time. If you want to learn about BPM implementation from real practitioners, this session is a must-attend:
TBE-1739A: BPM/SOA Consortium Speaks: Implementing BPM at Wells Fargo, Ford, and Navy Federal CU Venetian - Kevin Collins, Ford Motor Company; Jerry Hermes, Navy Federal Credit Union; Paul Tazbaz, Wells Fargo ; Richard Soley , OMG
Business Process Management and Business Process Modeling (both BPM) have been around for a while now, with positive impact on many organizations. One of the recent confusions about BPM implementations has been the hype around Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). The BPM/SOA Consortium, a part of the Business Ecology Initiative, has been focusing on dispelling that confusion and helping enterprises deliver optimization for innovation through well-governed Service Oriented Architectures that take advantage of business processes that have been captured, measured and delivered with Business Process Management. In this panel, BPM/SOA Consortium members, practitioners all, will talk about their adoption of the BPM approach with some focus on SOA, how they made the jump, how they convinced their management's, and how they managed to turn in measurable, positive ROI for their organizations.
* Yes, we did undergo a name change. The BPM/SOA Consortium is now the BPM/SOA Community of Practice (CoP). We wanted to eliminate any confusion with Standards submissions groups, often referred to as “Consortiums”. (Who knew!)
