Business Process Management
A business process is an aggregation of related activities performed to produce a specific service or a product. These processes are vital to the success of a business or government entity. Due to time ingrained cultures coupled with a lack of time and budget to focus on streamlining business processes, several government organizations have business processes that are ineffective and inefficient, and include duplicative and manual activities. Indeed some of these government organizations operate under a heritage of business processes that are poorly designed or were designed under ad hoc business assumptions that have changed over the years. Most of these processes require complete overhauls in order to properly align them with the organization’s mission, goals and objectives.
For this reason, Business Process Management (BPM) is becoming an increasingly important option for the strategic and operational components of government organizations. This has become even more imperative due to the pressure on government to control spending, improve services for citizens, reduce waste, streamline processes, and increase productivity.

Our BPM deployments usually encompass end-to-end processes that span multiple people, systems and organizations. They focus on improvements of human to human, human to systems, and system to system processes and workflows. For system to system processes, we extend and leverage the synergies and convergence of BPM with Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). When applied together BPM and SOA create a framework that significantly drives the success of an organization’s process transformations.
