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.

But RoR took the programming world by storm when Apple announced that it would ship RoR with Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard. Ever since that day, RoR has not looked back!
