Just a quick notification, as I noticed a blog posting useful for anyone in the market for buying a Business Process Management (BPM) tool.
The blog compares 10 such tools on a number of criteria and lists each tool’s compliance level to each criteria. Even though it does end up with a ranked list, it should be possible to find the criteria that are most relevant to you and then make your own ranking, so it looks like a good starting point for everybody:
If you need an introduction to BPM and the Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) I suggest considering the two books:
- “The Microguide to Process Modelling in BPMN 2.0: How to Build Great Process, Rule, and Event Models” by Tom Debevoise and Rick Geneva
- “OCEB Certification Guide: Business Process Management – Fundamental Level” by Tim Weilkiens, Christian Weiss and Andrea Grass
More information on BPMN can be found at OMG’s BPMN website at http://www.bpmn.org/
