What advice do you have for others considering IBM BPM?


If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering IBM BPM, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

We care about technology and support because support is very important and a BPM is not easy to implement. The concept may be easy but the implementation is not, and it depends on a lot of customer requirements. You need to have a very good support team, both functional as well as technical. The tool itself is not the most important factor. I would rate this solution as seven out of ten.

It is the Ferrari of BPM tools. To implement this product, you should have a process department and an ERP. Without an ERP solution, the transactionality of the BPM will not work. IBM Case Manager can assist you if you have a process that is unstructured. It is a very advanced tool, but very expensive. When I am looking at selecting a vendor for my client, I consider: * The size of the initiative * The cost of the licensing or subscription * Training * Availability of a consultant to implement the solution. I was a previous IBM partner in Mexico and Peru.

Stay as close as you can to what the current business model is; don't try to reinvent or recreate it. Just because it has appeal on all the buzzwords and new technologies, stay with what you've currently done and utilize that in each incremental stage. I always like to have an early start. I find early adopters to be amongst the best proponents. In every case, I would like to get in earlier. I'd like to see a lot more partners come forward in the present. This is where IBM has stepped forward previously and helped me in our world.

If you're not leveraging these types of technologies, you're missing out.

I would recommend IBM BPM. It comes down to the speed of implementation: How fast can we build something which our customers can use in their business and run with.

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * Price * Sales support * All the technical requirements or functional requirements of the product.
