Invited Talk at the University of Verona, Italy

University VeronaManfred Reichert gave an invited talk at the University of Verona, Italy. In today's dynamic business world, the success of a company increasingly depends on its ability to react to changes in its environment in a quick and flexible way. Companies have therefore identified process agility as a competitive advantage to address business trends like increasing product and service variability or faster time-to-market, and to ensure business-IT-alignment. Along this trend, a new generation of information systems has emerged-so-called process-aware information systems (PAIS), like workflow management systems or service orchestration engines. In his talk, Manfred addressed these flexibility needs and provided an overview of PAIS with a strong focus on methods and technologies fostering flexibility for all phases of the process lifecycle. This included flexibility support for pre-specified processes, the currently predominant paradigm in the BPM field as well as for loosely specified processes, which only partially specify the process model at build-time, while decisions regarding the exact specification of certain model parts are deferred to the run-time.

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.
