Business Processes

It's the way you do things. And most people think the more routine tasks can be automated, the better. Process management brings IT, business and process improvement people together on the same page. There is no disconnect between what the business expects and what IT delivers. It also brings together various types of information, so there's nothing lost in translation between business-speak and IT-speak. A process-oriented environment frees people to focus on business, making it the true source of competitive advantage.
