As we all know, a high IQ is not always a recipe for crushing success. In the end, it’s all about execution. Corporate speed depends on the ability to turn insights into action, to quickly respond to events, to overcome business silos, to rapidly change our ways if circumstances so dictate. This is where process management technologies deliver. Having consistently caught less of the shine than its complementing concept of Thriving on Data (ever heard of ‘Big Process’?), breakthroughs with intelligent automation and a taste of autonomous decision-making have firmly planted ‘Process on the Fly’ center stage – underpinning the latest Technology Business experiences.

There are many different flavors of process that can be supported and enabled by technology. Organizations can apply a range of options to support stable, predictable workflows, automated sequences of user interactions with systems, ad-hoc configurable responses to spontaneous events, and even ‘no processes’ at all. Delivered as a crucial component of a next-generation business IT platform, process technologies bring a new pulse to literally any process in the organization.

As a certified silo buster, it bridges gaps between corporate – or intercorporate – systems without intruding upon them. As a next-generation solution builder, it’s the glue that binds microservices and APIs together into something that we might have called ‘applications’ in the past. Combined with AI, cognitive systems and agile, it is making business processes more automated and intelligent, driving both decision-making and execution to boost corporate performance and create better places to work.

The move to this new perfectly paved process runway is for many no mean feat, as legacy and traditional applications implemented their own baked-in ‘process way’. On top of this Commercial off the shelf (COTS) products were extensively ‘customized’, ensuring that every process implementation was unique and therefore almost impossible to effectively manage and change. But in a world where cloud native, 5G, agile and microservices tears down the once well-defended boundaries, every Technology Business must ensure that their process landscape covers the entire technology business enterprise in a truly holistic, agile, secure and value for money way.

In their ultimate incarnations, processes become selfoptimizing and autonomous, as the silent companions to a self-driving Technology Business.

Not exactly a Mayfly.
