Case Study: Business Process Management - Applying Best Practices to Sales and Operations Planning

The Sales & Operations Planning function balances supply and demand at the SKU/sub-SKU level to maximize in-stock performance while minimizing inventory levels. Managing this process is not about reporting on actual performance, nor is it about an application that produces a monthly plan. Instead, what is required is an environment that allows planners to continually adjust SKU/sub-SKU demand and production on a forward basis, thus tuning the business to the realities of the marketplace as they unfold.

New Directions in BPMS Technology

While they sound the same on the surface, BPM software solutions don't all do the same thing. Each offering is optimized for a specific set of processes, integration requirements, human interface requirements, exception handling requirements, and performance management requirements, and each makes specific assumptions about the roles and required skills of process designers. Using illustrations from leading BPM offerings, this talk shows how to find the software that fits your particular needs.

In addition to requiring a good integration strategy this trend is forcing companies to adopt process orientation and explore Business Process Management as a technology to orchestrate, optimize and increase the flexibility of critical business processes.

The Great 21st Century Business Reformation

As long as the BPM conversation is restricted to technologists and BPM insiders, it’s likely to become just another technique for squeezing out costs and making incremental performance improvements. On the other hand, for some early pioneers where the conversation has reached the board room, BPM portends much more. Indeed, there is a Next Big Thing in business, but it's not just about technology and incremental improvement; it's about operational transformation, driven by the emergence of a wired, flat world.

Leveraging BPM in Uniting People, Process & Technology

The volatile nature of today's business and regulatory environments is driving organizations to address process-change head on. The financial services industry is no exception. Business processes have traditionally required manual intervention, thus missing the mark in achieving true straight-through processing.
