Business Process Management (BPM) technology is a broad term with an even broader marketplace. Generally speaking, BPM is the practice of aligning business goals and processes as companies and organizations evolve. BPM software helps 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.
