BPM Executive Summit 2014

Annual BPM Conference for our Customer

December, 3-4, 2014

The Heldrich Hotel
New Brunswick, NJ

Event Overview

Over the past few years we have heard from many of our customers, asking if we could create a forum for them to share BPM experiences, successes, challenges and journeys. Based on these requests, we hosted our first BPM Executive Summit in October 2013. The "one-day" event received such an overwhelming and positive response that this year we made it a two-day event. This exclusive, by-invitation only event was offered to our valued customers. The Heldrich Hotel in New Brunswick provided a stylish and intimate space for the sharing of real world success stories, lessons learned, and tricks & techniques that have helped all of us achieve common organizational goals!

We had Clay Richardson, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research, and Prof. Michael zur Muehlen, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at Stevens Institute of Technology as our keynote speakers who drove the thought provoking discussions. Pramod Sachdeva, Founder and Managing Director at Princeton Blue shared the importance of Social Media in today’s world and its impact on business processes that impact the customer experience.

Clay Richardson's keynote address:

Age Of The Customer Set To Disrupt BPM Market : The age of the customer is disrupting a BPM market that launched in the 1990s to drive costs from production and operational use cases. Over the next two years a laundry list of new alternative approaches will disrupt and reshape the BPM market to focus on customer experience and revenue-side opportunities. In this session, attendees worked collaboratively to design new roadmaps for transitioning BPM programs to solve age of the customer challenges.

Prof. Michael zur Muehlen's keynote address:

Data, Decisions and Actions - How to integrate Process and Decision Management : A process is performed for a reason, and often that reason is based on data and associated rules. Decisions form the basis of whether to perform a particular process, which variant of a process to choose, whom to involve, and how to execute a specific process instance. While BPM is an established discipline with defined methodologies and tools, Decision Management is much less defined as a discipline. This presentation showcased the latest advances in both BPM and Decision Management and illustrated how organizations can leverage both approaches to optimize performance and compliance.
