Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Reg Technology Panel One of the rapidly evolving solution areas in the IT industry is what vendors and analysts refer to as 'Business Process Management', or BPM for short. The premise behind BPM is that operational processes in many organisations cut across departmental and system boundaries, are based on a lot of manual processing, and often don’t work that well because of the resulting fragmentation and inconsistency.

The argument is that with the right management approach and the right blend of technologies, ranging from modelling tools through workflow engines to monitoring and measurement capability, you can get your processes humming more efficiently and effectively, thus creating an environment in which change can be implemented smoothly and rapidly, and generally ending up with happiness and harmony across the organisation. Easy!

Along the way, though, you might have to wade through some buzzword soup and figure out what vendors mean by 'orchestration', 'choreography', 'simulation', etc. and make sure you don't look silly by such faux pas as confusing process 'mapping' with 'modelling'.

When you cut through all the specialist language and fancy principles, however, a lot of the ideas are pretty straightforward and you may even have adopted elements of BPM already without realising or indeed caring that such clever terminology exists.

So whether you're an expert in this area, just getting up to speed, or simply wondering what all the fuss is about, we would be interested in gathering your views and experiences through our latest Reg Technology Panel Survey. Click here to get started. ®
