Business Process Management (BPM) enables companies to optimize business processes, reduce business cycle times, reduce operational costs and gain better alignment between business and IT. BPM provides the business process layer in an SOA, and defines how information and transactions flow across services and applications across the enterprise. While Web Services orchestration defines the flow, BAM enables the real time management of the process to increase efficiency and reduce operational costs.
Benefits of attending this Webinar:

- Understand how these areas are manifested in different technologies, which will impact the long term cost of ownership
- Learn what to look for when buying BPM and BAM solutions
