Enterprise Process Management Systems: Engineering Process-Centric Enterprise Systems using BPMN 2.0 proposes a process-centric paradigm to replace the traditional data-centric paradigm for Enterprise Systems (ES)--ES should be reengineered from the present data-centric enterprise architecture to process-centric process architecture to be called as Enterprise Process Management Systems (EPMS).
The real significance of business processes can be understood in the context of current heightened priority on digital transformation or digitalization of enterprises. Conceiving the roadmap to realize a digitalized enterprise via the business model innovation becomes amenable only from the process-centric view of the enterprise.
This pragmatic book:
Enterprise Process Management Systems: Engineering Process-Centric Enterprise Systems using BPMN 2.0 describes how BPMN 2.0 can not only capture business requirements but it can also provide the backbone of the actual solution implementation. Thus, the same diagram prepared by the business analyst to describe the business’s desired To-Be process can also be used to automate the execution of that process on a modern process engine.
Professor Wil van der Aalst, RWTH Aachen University, "…..you will enjoy reading this book by Vivek Kale. It combines business aspects with technology trends and pointers to methods. Organizations should use the present book to make their enterprise architecture more process-centric and to prepare for a wave of data science-enabled business improvement approaches." Dr Mathias Kirchmer, Managing Director and Co-CEO for BPM-D - Enabling the next Generation Enterprise, "Kale shares his views and vast experience on enterprise wide process management and the underlying systems. This is an interesting contribution to the digitalization of process management itself, combining key business, method and technology aspects. The book is a great read for business and IT practitioners building and applying an enterprise business process management discipline."
