Syndicated from ebizQ Last week I wrote a piece on the risks of pursuing BPM without decisioning. As promised, here are some thoughts on how to get started. Identify your decisions Step one is to find and name and manage the decisions that matter to your processes. Finding decisions is not always that easy, though [...]

Predictions for 2009

I just went back to check and found no predictions on the blog for 2008 (so I get a 100% accuracy rating with no errors) so I thought I would make some for 2009. In no particular order then: Cloud computing will impact decision management. There are already at least two decision management vendors offering [...]

I got an update from Ishmael Ghalimi at Intalio this week. I have blogged about Intalio a few times, including a set of posts from their user group – check out the intalio tag. Intalio is a company built on a variant of the open source model with 80% of their code in open source, [...]

Back from the Intalio User Conference and thought I would post a few thoughts post-event. Overall I was very impressed by the event – it was well organized and executed, free wifi, plenty of power in the rooms etc. I was a little disappointed that there were not more user case studies but I suspect [...]

Shao Fang presented the D3 (Demand Driven Development) program and their work on integrating business rules into the Intalio BPMS. A few notes on the D3 program: Not custom development Community suggested projects Customers put up money for features they really want and get credit for them Some are decoupled and done offshore, some more [...]

Dan Oneufer talked about the use of Intalio BPMS in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Justice Network has been established a long time and manages many aspects of the state justice system. However the counties are not well integrated into this network. Allegheny County, his example, is about 10% of the state and pretty rural. It has [...]

Intalio 2.0

Ismael Ghalimi presented his vision of “what’s next” and started with some history. In 1998 he started work on what he now calls “Office 2.0” and, while prototyping ideas, he met the other founders and started to put together a plan for a platform that would allow him (a self-confessed poor programmer) to build web [...]

First Look – Jaspersoft v3

In keeping with the open source theme this week (given I am at Intalio’s user conference), a quick note about Jaspersoft who just released version 3. This version puts a nice web 2.0 interface on a browser-based product. There’s a nice dashboard with some mashup capabilities and input controls that can be dragged and dropped [...]

Coghead and Intalio

Greg Olsen from Coghead presented how they are using Intalio’s BPMS. Greg is a believer in “small BPM” – something to extend and enhance something else. Greg’s experience led him to conclude that some basic database/process capabilities could be very useful to non-developers. Coghead was a platform as a service play from the beginning and [...]

First session is Doug Neal from CSC on “New Aspirations for BPM – Green and Global”. Doug took us back to 2001 when BPM was new and reminded us that the driver was a need for change (that could not be supported by the ERP systems of the time). How we manage change has evolved [...]

Neil and I are going to be speaking (on Applying Decision Management to Make Processes Smarter, Simpler and More Agile) at the Intalio User Conference on June 17th and the nice folks at Intalio have decided that everyone who attends deserves a copy of the book. While I am sure that all the attendees are [...]
