Learning how to map processes is relatively simple. Now more than ever, it is essential for a team to have a clear picture of how their processes run and where their risks are.

But how to get started?

This 15-page guide will take you through the creating of a high-level process map: who needs to be involved, what their roles are and how to run the actual process mapping session including tips for the facilitator and what details you do and don’t need to track at this stage.

02/20/2008 Business Activity Monitoring: Process Control For the Enterprise Gold Club Protected
As the nature of real-time information has evolved, the requirements for analysis and visualization of data have become more complex and sophisticated. There are key lessons to be learned from the process control industry’s decades of experience in dealing with real-time mission-critical data.

03/31/2005 The Business Case for SOA Gold Club Protected
Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is unquestionably one of the most important considerations in IT today. However, SOA goes beyond IT with its promise to truly transform corporate agility, and to align IT responsiveness with the businesses' demands for faster time-to-market. Fortunately, the benefits of SOA do not require a massive "big bang" reinvestment. Rather, as this white paper describes, the benefits can be realized incrementally with a well thought out strategy. A vital component of this strategy is recognizing the need for an SOA infrastructure-a set of software capabilities (security, monitoring, management, etc.) that exist outside of the services themselves to enable an enterprise-class implementation of SOA.

04/06/2004 UCCnet Synchronization: Managing the Integration Imperatives Gold Club Protected
