What is BPM ?

BPM is an endeavor that automate, execute and monitor business processes from beginning to end for connecting people to people, applications to applications and people to applications across different functional areas, imposing appropriate Rules, responsibilities, approval levels, SLAs, communications, escalations, etc

Page 4: Bpm nuts & bolts

Why do you need BPM ?

Do your processes cross departmental and organizational boundaries making ownership responsibilities less clear ?

BPM maps inter-departmental or inter-organizational relationships clearly modeling the ownerships and accountabilities

Do you have process inefficiencies due to lack of accountability and clear ownership ?

BPM suites enable a way to configure who is responsible for what

Are you worried about employees inconsistently completing assignments

BPM suites encapsulates best practices and enforce management policies using a built in rule engine

Page 5: Bpm nuts & bolts

Why do you need BPM ? ( Continued.. 2 )

Do you fear that your processes are not adapting to changing business requirements and hence lacking the agility

BPM suites enable in-flight process modifications so that managers can change the business processes and underlying rules very quickly

Do your processes frequently involve documents and forms as well as other structured and unstructured content ?

BPM suites ship with documentation and forms management capabilities

Do you lack clear, measurable, metrics for gauging for employee performance ?

BPM suites provide real time analytics capabilities for assessing task completion time and other performance metrics

• Process Engine • Process Engine executes the business processes defined by the Process

Modeler. • Process Models are stored in the database and the process is run and move

forward by Process Engines in accordance with action from external people and systems

• Process Engine executes the processes, escalating unresolved issues, ensuring process integrity, and collecting data necessary to resolving exceptions as they occur.

• Process Engine also provides a complete history and audit trail of user interactions, which can be used to improve processes and retaining best practices.

BPM Components – Process Engine

Page 18: Bpm nuts & bolts

• Process Modeler • Business process modeling tools provide business users with the ability to

model their business processes, so that the these processes can be executed by process engines

• Typical Process Modeler capabilities should include • Ability to model collecting data from forms• Ability to set thresholds and send alerts or take automated actions• Ability to model required approvals and verifications• Apply Business Rules in the process paths• Input and Retrieve Data from ODBC Databases within process paths • Interact with e-mail within process paths• Ability to build process by drag and drop of components• Ability to reuse process templates across multiple functions

• Business Rule Engine • Acts as central repository of the business rules at your organization / division

level • Promotes high reuse of rules across different LOBs and divisions • Business rules from rule repository are frequently called and used in the

process flows. • Typical Business Rule Engine capabilities should include

• Ability to define the rules in the form based configurations • Ability to delegate rules to the managers so as they make in flight

changes at business run times • Versioning of rules • Rule bulk change and movements utilities.

BPM Components – Business Rule Engine

Page 20: Bpm nuts & bolts

• Rule Categories that a BRE handles• Inferred Knowledge Rules

• Examples : If a Customer Spending per month is > $5K and the average account balance is >$20K, Customer = “Gold”

• Computation Rules • Examples : Examples include definitions, declarative and procedural

computations ( Ex : Salary = Basic + HRA + Travel Allowance )• Constraint / Guidelines / Process Rules

• Examples : Decisions in the flows, form validations, routing rules, claims auto adjudication rules, exception handling rules etc

• Event Correlation Rules• Examples : SLA management, Threshold value management ( Ex : Notify

the distributor for replenishment when the stock level comes down below the stock level

• Business Activity Monitoring • BAM provides performance management dashboards • Graphs to show metrics versus their target • Provides Business Process visibility for managers • They also provide real-time alerts and automated escalation procedures

when the KPIs go off the track• Actual performance data can be fed back to refine process models and begin

a new cycle of incremental process improvement.
