Business Process Management

BPM suites are all about improving workflow. They allow everyone involved to see how certain tasks are performed within an organisation, allowing them to be improved. They can bridge the divide between the IT department and other parts of a business – providing a common language for building better workflow processes.

Putting this in the cloud can improve collaboration and transparency, not least with outside partners including government or other compliance bodies. When modelling a new business process, cloud-based BPM could provide major cost-savings.
