Forrester Research's 2012 conference for business process professionals focuses on a provocative question: "Are you ready to embrace disruption?"

The two-day event, held in Orlando, Fla., in October 2012, featured a variety of sessions designed to help process professionals and enterprise architects survive and thrive in constantly changing conditions.

ebizQ's editorial team previewed the event with articles and podcasts, and ebizQ Site Editor Anne Stuart reported on the highlights both in articles on ebizQ and in her BPM in Action blog.

Following is ebizQ's coverage of Forresters's "Embracing Digital Disruption" Forum:

*Forrester: Four disruptive forces will change business--and your role in it
In this feature, Site Editor Anne Stuart explores what Forrester's Andrew Bartels calls the "four sharks of disruption": cloud computing, smart computing, mobility and IT consumerization.

*Getting ahead of digital disruption: Business process in a 'big data' world
Exactly what is digital disruption and why should companies embrace it? Forrester Research Senior Analyst Michele Goetz answers those questions in this Q & A and accompanying podcast.

*Aiming for business transformation? Consider a target operating model
Derek Miers, a principal analyst at Forrester Research, explains how some businesses use the “target operating model” as a framework for re-inventing themselves. Miers also discusses the concept in more depth in a podcast with ebizQ's Peter Schooff.

*DCM and enterprise social platforms: A winning combination.
In this Q & A, Forrester Research's Craig Le Clair speaks with ebizQ's Stephanie Mann about combining enterprise social platforms and dynamic case management (DCM) for improved business agility, collaboration and communication.

* Managing change in process improvement: Why and how to do the job well.
In the first half of this two-part Q & A, Forrester Research's Connie Moore offers insights and advice on how to minimize the impact of change in BPM projects.

*Change management for BPM: Two real-life stories
In Part II of this Q & A, Connie Moore and ebizQ's Peter Schooff discuss how to minimize the impact of change in BPM projects.

*Mobile BPM: Today's trends, tomorrow's prospects. In this Q & A, Forrester Research’s Clay Richardson and ebizQ's Peter Schooff discuss the benefits, current status and projected future for mobile BPM.
