Business Process Management (BPM)
Market Opportunities, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2006 to 2012

Business process management (BPM) aims for the achievement of greater value from existing software assets. IT investment allows the business process to be used to capture information electronically and automate services delivery. BPM is used to dynamically manage business logic with integrated application services. Business process management (BPM) is a central aspect of enterprise software.

BPM software challenges existing silo applications infrastructure to convert to real time processing. Conversion to 24x7 business processing imposes needs to achieve high availability, high reliability systems operations that are efficient.

Business process management products and integration architecture focus on permitting the business analyst to access and manage information relevant to the decision making process. Business process management provides an advantage to users because of a focus on business process automation across the enterprise and across trading partners, distributors, suppliers and customers.

Modular architecture allows customers to isolate their business processes from their applications, which gives them the flexibility to add, upgrade, or replace applications in their information technology environment without redefining all of their process interfaces.

Business process management relates to personal control of information. Personal control of information is facilitated by business process management designs that can be implemented as a processor peripheral to any existing computer. Business process management works to let people define the information they want out on a network, retrieve the information from a variety of places including the Internet, and operate on that information to perform useful tasks.

The business process management (BPM) market at $1,065 million in 2005 is expected to more than triple to $3.8 billion by 2012. The services oriented architecture (SOA) market at $450 million in 2005 is expected to grow rapidly through 2012, reaching $3.2 billion.

BPM process and compliance market forecast analysis indicates that productivity improvement continues to dominate markets throughout the forecast period.
