Cloud is everywhere. Everybody is talking about cloud computing. Some are talking about benefits and some are reiterating security concerns. But the truth is that we are finding it hard to ignore cloud. We just cannot resist it. In fact, if you are not a cloud user today, you will be one tomorrow. You will be using cloud hosting services. There are far too many lucrative benefits to cloud to let go of it.
Five years back, smartphones and iPhones were a luxury limited to business hotshots and swanky entrepreneurs. But not anymore! Today, smartphones are being used by even the common man. And mind you it’s not just the talking and texting that today’s common man is doing with smartphones. He is accessing internet through it – popularly called the mobile web.
Business Process Management or BPM – the name says it all. But to make one futile attempt we would say it’s the discipline of managing disparate business processes across the enterprise. It’s the tough job of juggling the different processes, taking a holistic look at them, and streamlining them.
Why BPM? It’s simple – for boosting the efficiency, productivity, adaptability, and agility of the enterprise process. With good BPM in place, enterprises can have the luxury of modifying certain business processes without really changing the fundamental business rules. This way they can better react to market changes and grab greater opportunities.
