One of questions we get asked most often from our members is: “What is the relationship between BPM and SOA?” There is a lot of confusion as to whether you can do one without the other. Should you? Should you start building services first or designing processes first? This panel discussion will include vendor and industry experts. Sponsors will get the opportunity to frame the conversation and submit poll questions to ask the audience. After the roundtable sponsors will have the opportunity to interact in their booths in live chat sessions with attendees.
