What is BPM

Well defined processes are the key to becoming a responsive, agile enterprise. Business Process Management (BPM) is a comprehensive approach to improving corporate performance by aligning business processes with business strategy and goals and assuring that IT applications, human competencies and organizational development support the process performance objectives of the organization.
