Whose Intention is Executed by the BP-Engine and Who is Executing it?

Peter Brand: If programs are perceived as a kind of volition utterance, this question may come to mind.

  • Contributing Analysts not contributing?

  • Fictional example

    -  IT department of large Swiss bank buys BPM-Suite from Oracle
    -  Pre-Sales people from Oracle instruct IT-people to master BPM-Suite
    -  IT department starts a BPM-project, gets support from a Board member
    -  After-Sales people from Oracle assist IT-architects and -developers in analysis    modelling, prototyping and implementing a BPMS
    -  Users are informed, instructed and forced to use the system

    So finally users, running the BPM-Suite's BP-Engine, are mainly executing intentions of IT-people from Oracle and the bank. Intentions, which at best have some similarity with wishes of users, steering volition of leaders, demands of customers, etc.

  • So, Good Bye and don't forget:

    A so-called BP-Engine, i.e., a Computer Processor, cannot - by elementary logic - execute what you call, without too much reflection, a 'Business Process'. Nonsense has no future, or so I hope.
