A single solution that provides the combined functionality of both BPM and PPM can alone meet the requirements fully. Extending a BPM system to include PPM functions can therefore offer significant benefits.

02/11/2009 Maximize Business Value with Right-Time Information Using Data Services Gold Club Protected
How agile is your business? It's a question you can't afford to ignore, especially since being agile is how businesses effectively thrive in today's competitive environment.

11/14/2008 Formalizing Operational Governance: Ensuring the well-managed enterprise Gold Club Protected

Governance is a straightforward concept and is practiced by all enterprises. It is the creation of policies regarding various aspects of the business and then making certain that the policies are followed. Creating the policies is not the main issue in having good governance; all successful enterprises do a good job creating policies. The hard part of governance, and where most enterprises fail, is in monitoring the policies and in knowing that the policies have been followed; in other words achieving control and compliance.

A new class of governance capability is available that will let you dynamically manage all governance efforts in a formal and efficient way, thereby delivering significant ROI to the business in terms of lower operating expenses and improved efficiency. In this paper, the concept of defining and formalizing Operational Governance is discussed, as well as the inherent benefits of implementing an Operational Governance solution.
