BPM-EAI. Below is my take on various aspects of end-to-end BPM solution development in IBM BPM vs PEGA PRPC.


My observations are primarily centered around ground realities in terms of industry adoption. The strengths indicated below are relative to each other. Sections of the blog meant for Business Leaders and Decision makers - [TTM and TCO for the solution], [Market presence, Sustainability and Delivery risk], Future trends Sections of the blog meant for Architects and Techies - Tool features [Inception/Elaboration/Construction/Transition] Going forward in this note, my reference to IBM and PEGA would be to IBM BPM 8.1 Advanced and PRPC 6.2 SP2 respectively. TTM and TCO for the solution PRPC can be looked upon as "BPM in a box". The industry BPM frameworks provides by PEGA seem to have a strong edge over IBM. PRPC is touted to be very expensive (relatively), but i feel that the cost would be justified in terms of ROI delivered to the business by quicker TTM and lower TCO.

Community Network Blogs. Introduction I've titled this a garage sale (or yard sale as my US colleagues would say) as it's a real mixed bag of topics that are related in some way that I want to sell (I mean discuss but it ruins my analogy).

Community Network Blogs

It's pretty broad in terms of covering business process, methodologies, SOA and development, but if you are BPX'er with some technical savvy or a Solution Architect (Functional or Technical) then please read-on as I'd love to nail this with a decent discussion and potential future follow-up in another blog. My reason for writing this blog is to put forward some ideasto try cement a direction for those who work for organisations where software development is not their core business and where they are bombarded by all thebest practices out there right now.
