No, BPM can help small and medium sized businesses as well. From process discovery to get everyone on the same page, to process automation to provide efficacy to budget conscious or short-staffed companies, BPM can increase the execution speed and accuracy of all business sizes.
We can help companies implement small footprints if the requirements are not complex. If the needs lie in discovery we can help implement a BlueworksLive practice, if a small design and execution environment is needed, we can help businesses implement a single instance of IBM Business Process Manager Express with very small CPU and RAM requirements for a small workgroup. As the business needs grow and the project gains traction, we can help expand the reach and execution ability of the implementation.
BPM does NOT solve all software development troubles and barriers for an enterprise. It is true, that building processes with an integrated execution environment improves the maintainability and reusability of a system, however a BPM process in execution is generally geared towards business flows where there is interaction of different systems and/or individuals with rules and parameters along the way, usually ending up in database transaction of some sort. BPM is not the tooling of choice for system of record type of requirements, it’s a complement that can efficiently orchestrate systems of engagement with database transactions in systems of record.
