BPM-- Moving from Application Integration to Business Process Integration --
Advancing information technology has fueled the growth of enterprise systems and electronic transactions between corporations and between corporations and individuals. We've also seen the emergence of enterprise application integration (EAI) tools, designed to integrate systems or business applications distributed among different departments for use as a single system.
On the other hand, we've yet to see real progress in workflow-based system-building that applies directly to business processes, handling issues such as what application should be used for what processing.
A promising solution is business process management, or BPM.
BPM seeks to seamlessly coordinate internal business processes and processes between enterprises for real-time centralized management.
Why is BPM Important?
The Importance of an Easily Managed IT Infrastructure for Simple, Easy Process Integration, Message Integration, and Data Integration in Enterprise Systems
- 1.What ERP Deployment Alone Cannot Provide
- Deploying just an ERP leaves certain issues unresolved, including process management automation and a consistent means of monitoring transactions with subsidiaries, affiliates, and business partners. Process integration is essential.
- 2.The Impact of B2B and EC Technology and Environmental Developments
- As advances in EDI continue, it becomes increasingly difficult to integrate legacy system assets and Web services. And changes in the business environment have spurred greater need for hubs linking industries, posing the risk of daunting complexity in messaging among ERPs and systems.
- 3.Prerequisites for Integrated Global Management
- System construction with transparency requires organizing data globally, which is also a requirement for global process integration.
Thus, BPM is essential for building an environment for integrated information processing to adapt flexibly and easily to globalization and shorter product lifecycles.
