Business Process Management (BPM) is the practice of aligning business goals and processes as companies and organizations evolve. BPM software is often deployed to help organizations gain a competitive advantage by assisting business leaders to improve organizational performance by analyzing, designing, implementing, controlling and modifying operational business processes. It can also help organizations define the steps required to carry out a business task, mapping these definitions to existing processes, and then streamlining or improving these processes so that the steps taken to complete them are more efficient.
In that spirit, we’ve turned our gaze to the future of BPM software. Whether its inclusion in a recent analyst report, the release of an innovative new tool, or a bump in venture funding, these are the providers that have earned watch list status for the year ahead.
