Enterprise 2.0 (finally) moves toward Enterprise An interesting and salutary move is being iniated in the small world of both web and enterprise 2.0. It’s about what I would call a “de-technologization” of the concept and, according to me, will take back enterprise 2.0 to a ground it should not have left : the enterprise as a productive organization that must deal with internal rules and constraints. It slightly appeared in my old definition of enterprise 2.0 in 2007 and, particularly in my predictions for 2009. Now it seems that the time is coming. It’s the beginning of a major turn from the vision that considered that making web 2.0 tools used within companies was a goal by itself to the vision according to which they are only parts of a system.

Business process Overview[edit] There are three types of business processes: Management processes, the processes that govern the operation of a system. taraneon international blog Saturday afternoon, an hour to go before the game kicks off and the manager and players have gathered to discuss strategy and tactics. What you can and should expect to see is that every player – including the substitutes – knows about the overall game plan.

SAP's HANA is hot, but still needs to mature The potential of SAP's HANA in-memory computing engine permeated the agenda and had attendees' tongues wagging this week at the Tech Ed conference in Las Vegas, but the technology still has some maturing to do. SAP has relentlessly promoted HANA since its launch in May 2010, touting its ability to quickly analyze large amounts of business data and reporting major early interest from customers. Over time, SAP plans to weave HANA throughout its portfolio as part of a sweeping "renewal," but in reality, the product only went into general availability in June, and detailed stories of customers successfully using it in production have so far been scarce.

Forrester Blogs Outside of BPM, one of my other passions is mentoring college students through the process of launching new startups. I enjoy helping students tighten up their business ideas and seeing them build business plans that can attract the funding they need to stand up and implement their ventures. Recently, after reviewing and providing feedback on a student’s business plan, the student responded, “I can launch my business without a business plan; all this planning seems like a waste of time.” At first, I thought he was joking. However, I could read by the look on his face that he was serious.

SAP's HANA roadmap: does it convince? Yesterday, SAP announced what it called a roadmap for HANA. HANA is SAP's take on the idea of in-memory technology for enterprise applications. In reality, the announcement was a selection of planned applications scheduled for release later this year. That's not a roadmap. It's a statement of intent. SAP has to do far better than that while at the same time providing its two million strong developer community a reason to listen. The Process Ninja Improvements to customer onboarding are all the rage these days. Why so? Probably because most organisations do it so badly.

Four Myths of BPMS: The real truth about BPM and collaboration b I am very excited to post a replay of an exceptionally well-received webinar we first presented on June 3, 2009. In this webinar, noted analyst, blogger and consultant Sandy Kemsley joins us to present IT-Business Collaboration on BPM.

SAP’s Hana Analytics May Pay Off as Software Trumps Hardware SAP AG (SAP), the German software maker whose sales outpaced those of Oracle Corp. (ORCL) last quarter for the first time in 2 1/2 years, has a new weapon to defend its decision not to add hardware to its mainstay business. At the heart of the newly found momentum is SAP’s Hana offering, which allows clients including BASF SE and Colgate- Palmolive Co. to speed up the analysis of business data. The amount of prospective sales for Hana is “very, very large and growing very, very quickly,” Chief Technology Officer Vishal Sikka said in an interview. “We have never seen anything of this kind of growth before.” The 400 million-euro ($571 million) pipeline for Hana, which was officially released in June, is the biggest in the history of Walldorf, Germany-based SAP, the largest maker of business-management software.

Oracle BPM I had conversations with 0.3% of the 60,000 Oracle Open World in-person attendees. Clearly in-person communication is not that scalable, yet it remains the best way to have conversations that enlighten all parties involved (I’ll be happy to be proven wrong by the threads started by this blog). Oracle is not only delivering a complete BPM suite to build solutions, but also Process Accelerators, or BPM solutions for high-value industry and horizontal business processes.
