Today's ebizQ's BPM in Action virtual conference will be a day packed with insights from the world's leading BPM experts. Yours truly will moderate much of the event.

Opening the conference (10:00 ET) will be Elise Olding, Research Director at Gartner, joined by Doug Mow of Virtusa, who will talk about "The Heart of Business Process Management." Elise and Doug will describe how organizations have come to realize that the cornerstone of a successful business process integration (BPI) and business process management (BPM) effort is the business process competency center (BPCC), and how to successfully run such a center.

K. Mani Chandy of Cal Tech and David Olson of Progress Software are up next (11:00 ET), and he will discuss "Sense and Response Systems Overlaid on BPM," and the EDA (event-driven architecture) of sense and response systems; discusses the relationship between SOA and EDA; and gives applications of BPM coupled with sense and response in different vertical domains such as security, environment, finance and the smart grid.

Clay Richardson of Forrester and Keith Swenson of Fujitsu (12:00) will then talk about "Applying Social BPM for High Business Impact," and how the Social BPM trend and the push towards BPM simplicity are connected to a broader trend towards "simplicity" in society. Business users want greater control over assembling, updating, and communicating their business processes, with minimal support from IT.

James Taylor, president of Decision Management Solutions and a contributor here at ebizQ, will then lead a session (1:00 ET) titled "Advanced Decisioning for Process Management," and  how decisioning, especially advanced decisioning, is critical to addressing process issues.

Then, Dave Linthicum, CTO of Bick Group, internationally known distributed computing and application integration expert, and contributor here at ebizQ, will lead a panel discussion (2:00 ET) exploring the issues of "BPM and Cloud Computing." What is the connection, you ask? As Dave's panel will explore, the migration toward cloud computing will highlight the use of BPM as we seek to manage many heterogeneous systems that may exist anywhere in the world, binding them together as a set of processes made up of many things that support the business. Indeed, we may shortly see a world with dozens of systems, on-premise and cloud-based, that may support a single process spanning many companies, countries, and platforms. 

Wrapping up the day will be a presentation on Case and Process: Two Sides of the BPM Coin, (3:00 ET) featuring Emily Burns of Pegasystems, and Stephen Zisk of Pegasystems. Emily and Stephen will explore the relationship between case management and more structured processes, as well as present case studies of how clients are managing both kinds of work.

Tune in for the BPM in Action virtual conference today, Wednesday, June 23! The events of the day will also be archived for your viewing convenience.

In this blog (formerly known as "SOA in Action"), Joe McKendrick examines how BPM and related business and IT approaches can promote business transformation.
