Business Process Management (BPM): A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 11, 2011
Business Process Management (BPM) represents activities carried out by global enterprises in optimizing and adapting their business processes through the use of software tools. The global economic recession has emerged as a blessing in disguise for the evolving BPM market, providing a solution to deal with falling revenues and margins. The recession has affected the long-standing customer relationships of several businesses, forcing companies to focus efforts on adopting new initiatives for improving customer-centric processes. Adverse economic conditions have also brought to fore the significance of operational transparency, control and auditability, largely due to the cost-containment measures adopted by companies.
Globalization, commoditization, and intensely competitive environment are placing additional pressure on businesses to offer differentiated products, to protect overall margins. The need to streamline business operations and processes, achieve efficiency in the automated processes, reduce operational expenditure, enhance enterprise productivity, incorporate innovation, and gain competitive edge over rivals is driving businesses to adopt BPM functionality. Further, the highly regulated nature of the market implies that global businesses are required to adopt agility, transparency and control in their business processes, for coping with the adverse market conditions. With enterprise application platforms such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) not offering enough flexibility to incorporate rapid changes in operations management, particularly during the adverse economic environment, the significance of BPM continues to rise.
The United States and Europe account for a lion’s share of the global business process management market, as stated by the new market research report on Business Process Management. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to register the fastest growth, among all regions, driven by the rising demand for business know-how and IT infrastructure. BPM adoption in developing economies such as India and China is expected to witness rapid growth owing to the increasing purchasing power of consumers and growing market for IT infrastructure. As the adoption of BPM is at nascent stage in the emerging economies, growth is expected to pick-up in the near future. Industries, schools, educational institutions and government bodies are increasingly adopting BPM software for enhancing the efficacy of present systems such as management of records and documents. Moreover, companies from the fields of marketing, telecommunications, construction and manufacturing are also increasingly employing BPM software.
The use of Web-based applications for implementing automated processes has been growing steadily in recent years, thereby enhancing the need for real-time analysis and availability of updated information. Cloud computing is rapidly gaining prominence and emerging as the core of BPM initiatives, due to its ability to provide up-to-date information in usable format. The combination of Internet and cloud computing is expected to foster growth in the BPM segment, with BPM expected to serve as a platform for providing private cloud services as many companies are focusing efforts on reducing overall costs through data center consolidation. Cloud computing offers BPM solutions at affordable prices and facilitates in building applications without any programming.
BPM vendor landscape is characterized by high degree of fragmentation. While new entrants can easily enter the market, existing players can extend their service offerings through consolidation or in-house improvements. Oracle and IBM are dominant players in the BPM sector.
