"that BPMS will be among the fastest growing software markets over the next five years: from $1B this year to $2.6B in 2011 The key issues are globalization, the increasing importance of the consumer and the change in the dynamics of business as the Internet rises in importance."
Mentre la seconda dice:
"In a survey found that companies expected to spend 22% of their IT budgets this year on SOA, Web services, and Web 2.0 initiatives. Because BPM is a major reason for turning to SOA, companies are likely to target some of their SOA software spending to BPMS,"
che devo dire di altro? speriamo che gli stessi trend valgano anche in Italia!!!!
Vi segnalo due corsi previsti nel mese di aprile a Roma su BPM: il primo della durata di due giorni (16 e 17 aprile) di carattere più generalistico, che si pone come obiettivo, come dice la brochure di presentazione, "Questo corso spiega il Business Process Management presentando in dettaglio i principi che governano i processi di Business, l'uso degli "enablers" che consentono le trasformazioni dei processi di Business, una metodologia strutturata per il design, lo sviluppo e la gestione del Business Process, il modeling del Business Process e gli strumenti, le tecniche e le tecnologie per gestire il Business Process.
Vengono inoltre spiegate le ragioni per le quali le aziende falliscono o hanno successo nell'implementazione del Business Process Management ".
Il secondo seminario, previsto nei due giorni successivi (18 e 19 aprile), ne approfondisce i concetti. Sempre dalla brochure "Questo seminario aiuterà a capire meglio l'analisi e il Modeling dei processi di Business. In particolare ne spiegherà i principi e i concetti, lo sviluppo di architetture di processo, il Modeling di processi di Business, regole e costi usando differenti tecniche, tra cui IDEF, i criteri di misurazione della Business Performance, l'uso di strumenti e tecniche per i Process Models "AS-IS" e "TO-BE", vari tools software per Process Modeling e Analysis."
I corsi sono organizzati da Technology Transfer, società leadear di mercato, che da anni organizza seminari/corsi con speaker di livello internazionale.
Nel caso specifico entrambi i corsi prevedono come istruttore mr. Ted Lewis.

L'XPDL (XML Process Definition Language) è un linguaggio di markup ideato per la definizione dei processi di lavoro, standardizzato dalla WFMC (WorkFlow Management Coalition).
Il linguaggio BPEL (Business Proces Execution Language) orientato all'esecuzione di un processo business.
I due linguaggi sono più complementari che alternativi. A questo proposito leggete qui una esaustiva quanto semplice spiegazione.
Tim O'Reilly dice "Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the internet as platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform"
Con Enterprise 2.0 si fa riferimento all'utilizzo di servizi di classe web 2.0 nell'area business. Esempi sono le applicazioni google (calendar, documenti etc), zoho (office suite con writer, sheet, show, tec), koral (document content management) e moltissimi altre. (vedere per esempio i partecipanti alla conferenza Office 2.0 a San Francisco nell'ottobre scorso e tenete presente che soluzioni di tipo office sono solo una parte delle soluzioni proponibili come Enterprise 2.0.
