What characterizes a Business Process Management Software and what is the Added Value from BPM for Companies?

A BPM (Business Process Management) tool is a software that focuses on the process-oriented management of business processes in organizations of all types, sizes and industries. This is no longer trivial, especially when considering the increasing complexity of business processes. Learn here, how a professional Business Process Management software enables the control of your business processes and what added value the introduction of such a BPM solution provides for companies.

BPM Software

Professional business process management requires a professional BPM solution

The entry into the basic mapping of business processes is something many companies dare to do using pure visualization programs like Microsoft® Visio or PowerPoint. Here, workflows are visually represented by means of different graphic symbols to provide an initial overview of the company's business processes. However, process owners and business users who want to document and control their processes using such softwares soon reach their limits. The desire for a professional BPM software that not only makes process visualization much easier, but also enables comprehensive control of the business processes, quickly arises. As modern companies are faced with increasingly complex business processes, ensuring smooth operations is a challenge that should not be underestimated. Many work processes are nowadays carried out across different departments and locations and sometimes also involve third parties such as suppliers. Keeping control of all workflows, setting up a professional process management and simultaneously optimize or even automate processes is a mammoth task.

What distinguishes professional BPM software and what is BPM used for?

Business Process Management is often directly linked to corresponding BPM software solutions that are essential for achieving BPM goals. Since Business Process Management comprises much more than the simple graphical representation of process flows, common visualization programs do not cover all aspects of BPM. For a professional process management of enterprise workflows, various aspects have to be considered: these include process mapping, process automation, process measurement and process improvement.

The BPM lifecycle

In BPM, process mapping involves the recording of process sequences in the company and the creation of process documentation. The results are so-called process models, often represented as BPMN diagrams, which visually show the workflow to all business users, provide the necessary process transparency and also relevant analytics. On the basis of this documentation, the first potential to optimize and automate these business processes can already be identified. In addition to process mapping, business process management also includes the execution and automation of business processes. The term workflow management or workflow management systems is often used in this context. These BPM systems aim to optimize process execution through automated or controlled task management and business rule management.

In order to meet all the requirements of business process management, a professional BPM platform should also enable the monitoring of workflows. Process Mining is particularly suitable for this purpose. With process mining, business processes and process flows are reconstructed on the basis of process data and monitored as well as automated in real time so that weak points in process execution and automation can be precisely identified.
