IoT is Hot. Not surprisingly, when you picture wearable devices, sensors and smart machines that are connected to the internet – all eager to make lives easier, provide information, react and interact with the human world. But in the business world, something is missing. Where is a system that can integrate IoT devices with mission critical business processes?
That system is very likely BPM. Business Process Management suites have become the leading technology for fast, enterprise-changing systems which optimize and streamline workflows for organizations in nearly every industry.
What if these two awesome forces – IoT and BPM – could be combined?
In this pocket-sized BPM & IoT Matchbook, we explore the possibilities opened by matching IoT devices with BPM technology.

Examining the profile, skills and compensation of BPM professionals around the world.
The 2015 BPM salary survey of BPM Professionals represents the first such survey by BPMInstitute.org and as such will form the baseline for future research in this area. The objective was to examine the profile, skills, and compensation of BPM professionals around the world. This research examines factors such as age, gender, education, job satisfaction, salary and bonus, certification, background, and other characteristics.
Respondents from USA, Canada, Europe, Asia, Middle East and Mexico provide a truly global flavor to the survey. On an international basis, nearly 70% of respondents were male and 30% were female and 57% of respondents were between the ages of 26 and 45. 61% of respondents were employed in organizations with annual revenues greater than $50 million per annum.
Business process management (BPM) needs can vary widely, from top-down business transformation initiatives to smart process applications to enterprise resource planning, marketing, social and more. With this breadth and depth of reach, BPM - and BPA, business process automation - are more than a couple of buzzwords, they are absolutely mission critical.
To get the most out of a BPM or BPA solution, organizations need to select platforms that are quick to deploy, agile once in service and show measurable value over time.
There are plenty of offerings on the market today, but, how do you compare them when they offer such varying capabilities?
We've created a resource to help you efficiently compare BPM and BPA solutions by identifying the most important considerations.
BPM suites add value but are often monolithic systems that take a high level of knowledge and training to implement and use, causing upfront disruption that can adversely affect the business. This also makes these systems slow to make an impact and difficult to use for one-off needs – creating challenges for companies that need quick results.
Organizations need agile platforms that are faster to market and provide deeper value. To this end, business process application suites provide flexible solutions that support your full range of BPM needs, including top-down initiatives, smart process applications, and the need for rapid app development platforms that can be used by IT and business users alike.
Quality processes are central to the success of any large organization, and all business units should play by the same rules. While this is certainly true, each department is bound to have unique requirements which is why a one-size-fits-all approach to business processes doesn't work. This white paper uses the example of one department that typically considers itself the exception to business process standardization, the legal department. Readers will learn how solid business processes enabled this department to improve its work involving customer transactions and its effort to make business units more successful.
