Successes and Achievements
Over the past several years, many corporations have successfully completed numerous strategic Business Process Management (BPM) initiatives. Looking to build and expand upon these successes, many practitioners realized that connecting and integrating the individual models from strategic BPM initiatives could identify additional performance improvement opportunities and synergies between the previously modeled core cross-functional business processes.
Bearing in mind that activities integrate individual tasks, processes integrate activities, strategic BPM initiatives integrate processes, and then continuing with this rationale, one realizes the Business Architecture (BA) integrates all core cross-functional business processes from the strategic BPM initiatives.

For a number of years, systems modernization been has providing benefits to organizations seeking to analyze software architectures in support of tactical systems initiatives such as software maintenance. Modernization has also delivered benefits for project teams seeking to migrate from obsolete or aging languages and platforms to more modern environments. While success stories abound for tactical modernization projects, they merely represent the "low hanging fruit" of what modernization can achieve. Modernization efforts are now reaching into more significant and far reaching domains, extending opportunities into the upper echelons of IT and business architectures. Achieving this goal requires a deeper understanding of the architectural impacts of systems modernization.

If the discipline of process management, improvement and optimization is so valuable, why is it not more pervasive in the fabric of companies? What might need to happen to make it so pervasive? One answer: Embed it everywhere and make it easy to obtain its value. Embedding BPM discipline and its enabling technology throughout a company results in the benefits of process management becoming accessible to everyone. Some form of process modeling, automation, monitoring and reporting can then be done by all employees rather than a select few “process experts”. Continuous process improvement is then supported through instinct, experience and observation rather than just through formal analysis. Process skills become more broadly internalized and practiced as a fundamental work habit. A critical partner in the objective of embedding BPM is the Independent Software Vendor.
