Beth Gold-Bernstein Series: Integrating and Optimizing the Enterprise

Sponsored By:

HCL Technologies

Enterprises have invested significantly on applications to support business processes, but often find that their IT investments do not support the business process 100%. BPM and process platforms play a crucial role in bridging these gaps. Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) provides real-time monitoring of business processes and events, enabling business mangers to become proactive rather than reactively reacting to periodic reports. Successful implementation of BPM and BAM is a combination of the right tools, the right people, and the right processes. Tune into this webinar to learn how to optimize all three.

What you will learn:
  • How to bridge the gap between business and IT
  • How to optimize your SOA through BPM
  • How to evaluate and use the right middleware tools for BPM
  • How to utilize offshore resources for BPM projects
  • How other organizations have succeeded using this approach
