Business Process Management (BPM)
What is BPM?
The acronym BPM stands for business process management. Concealed behind this term is the management, i. e. the controlling and adjustment, of processes and workflows.
In this field, a distinction is made between professional BPM and technical BPM. We regard professional BPM as a professional process consulting and process optimization, respectively, that is the optimization of processes from purely professional points-of-view.
Under technical BPM, we subsume the implementation of professional processes with regard to the software, process automation and the concepts and methods necessary for the implementation.
The aim of BPM is the on-going optimization of processes and know-how transfer within businesses to reduce lead times, error rates and costs as well as to increase the satisfaction of the customers.
BPM and the Digital Revolution
