Taking an Engineering Perspective on PAIS - Keynote Presentation

Opens internal link in current windowManfred Reichert was invited keynote speaker of the Opens external link in new windowInternational Workshop on Process Engineering (IWPE'15), which was held in conjunction with the Opens external link in new windowBPM 2015 conference.  BPM 2015 took place in Innsbruck, Austria from 31 August - 3 September, 2015.

It is the 13th conference in a series that provides the most prestigious forum for researchers and practitioners in the BPM field. Ulm University hosted the BPM conference series in 2009.

Business Process Management (BPM) has been evolving as a research discipline for more than a decade and a multitude of innovative concepts, methods and techniques have been suggested. However, there is still a huge gap between the promises of BPM in theory and its actual achievements in practice. A major reason for this gap has been the lack of established principles, methods and techniques for the engineering of more advanced process management technology and process-aware information systems, respectively, i.e., to implement process support features in a cost-effective and practical approach. To deal with this challenge, this keynote talk will take an engineering perspective on process-aware information systems. It will start with a discussion of the existing gap between BPM theory and its translation into reality. Then, it will elaborate on some of the fundamental requirements to be met when engineering process-aware information systems (e.g. scalability, usability, robustness, and integration capability). Furthermore, it will give examples of successful BPM engineering endeavours. Finally, it will discuss some of the challenges on the way towards well established principles, methods and techniques for process engineering.

BPM is not just about making diagrams. The real challenge is to realize information systems that support processes without jeopardizing flexibility.

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
