The term “Disruptive BPM” has been used quite a lot and you see this term floating around the inter-web in recent years. I have been contemplating about this potentially controversial topic for over a year now. In this blog series we’ll explore the notion that it is actually a good idea that the “BPM world” should be disrupted. And in saying that, I do not mean in the traditional sense of the term “Disruptive Technologies”, like how Apple disrupted the music industry with iPods and iTunes. No, I mean apocalyptical disruption in the very fabric of all so called BPM practitioners’ thinking and all so called BPM technologists’ ideas of the same topic.
And in doing so, I hope it defines what disruptive BPM should look like in both cultural and technological aspects and how we can brace for this Tsunami through solutions like Appian. Within an organization’s context, I hope to discuss why BPM, in its traditional sense, would and should be disrupted with technologies like Appian within both Business and IT areas. In short, bracing for BPM disruption can be achieved by knowing, acknowledging and embracing innovative BPMS technology, and in turn, harnessing them as the key catalyst for revolutionary changes within the organization, to reach places where traditionalist BPM-practitioners have never been before.
