London, March 8, 2011 – Capgemini’s end-to-end BPM approach treats business processes as assets that can directly contribute to client’s enterprise value and performance, to improve business impact. Aiming for a top three position in the BPM market, Capgemini will extend its existing expertise and assets in Europe, USA and India, enforcing local BPM resources by applying the Rightshore® concept,2 and using its BPM Centres of Excellence to catalyze the offering globally.
There is rising demand for BPM as organizations seek to be increasingly agile to adapt to rapidly evolving, competitive market conditions including global competition, changing legislation, and economic pressures with the need to speed up time-to-market, increase business value and lower costs. At the same time, BPM technologies are quickly developing to provide true, measurable value in enabling business process improvement.
According to Gartner, the BPMS (business process management suite) market size in 2009 was valued at $1.9 billion growing to $3.4 billion by 2014, a compound annual growth rate of 12.2%3.
Michele Cantara, Research Vice President at Gartner said, “Many companies struggle with both cultural and organizational challenges when they make the shift from an application-centric to a process-centric approach to business process improvement, and they turn to Enterprise Service Providers for help. As BPM becomes a mainstream approach to improving processes, we see organizations seeking larger Enterprise Service Providers to support global roll out of BPM solutions. Increasingly, these buyers are also looking to Enterprise Service Providers for solution accelerators or process templates to automate the process gaps between applications.”
Capgemini will work with partners such as Oracle, and Pegasystems – along with other BPM technology providers – and will initially focus on key markets across Europe and the United States.
Capgemini pinpoints the need for a step-by-step approach to BPM to effectively manage the development of business processes and avoid common pitfalls created by the sheer size and range of applications in place, differing stakeholder agendas and changing business demands. Applying its deep domain knowledge, Capgemini will leverage its worldwide capabilities to offer market-specific solutions that aim to quickly accelerate delivery for clients. Capgemini’s BPM global solutions portfolio will cover:
- Value & Performance Management
