Lean BPM Brings Disruption to Digital Transformation and Enterprise App Development

We call it Lean BPM, but you’ll hear No Code, Zero Code, Low Code, while from Gartner, it is High Productivity Application Platform-as-a-Service, and Forrester splits the whole No-Code/Low-Code niche into Low-Code Development and Mobile Low-Code Development. Confused yet? Adding even further to the confusion is just who Low Code/Lean BPM/No Code platforms are actually for is not really clear. The obvious distinction is between those app development solutions which require no coding ability and those which do. I like to think that the distinction ought to be between the various target users of the platforms, and whether they are... Read More »

Differentiating Between Low Code BPM Platforms

Low Code BPM has promised to deliver business apps faster and make the process of Digital Transformation faster, easier, and smoother. The problem Low Code BPM platforms have is that they are still largely targeted at the professional developer, and making their life faster, easier, and smoother. But, what about the business user themselves, such as a Business Analyst who can see the need for change and knows what that change ought to be, but cannot execute and change the process itself because the tools are in the hands of the High Priests of  Technology?

The Role of Process in Emergency Management and Disaster Response

Hurricane Harvey tests lessons learned from Sandy & Katrina With cities deluged and under water in Texas, as Hurricane Harvey peters out on land, local and federal emergency response teams are being tested to their limits. With finite resources, and racing against time to save lives, citizens and emergency professionals must grapple with the basics of survival, and in this ‘process’ has a very important role. I recall as a young soldier in the Eighties, being sent on an emergency relief operation after a hurricane hit the Caribbean. I was personally shocked to find many, if not most, of the...

Now he leads an IoT platform, and he caught my eye because I was flipping through Fox Business and saw the captions “Artificial Intelligence”. And “AI Dominating the Future”. Curiosity peeked, I watched the clip and listened to what Siebel had to say. Fox and cable... Read More »

Major Marketing Automation Player’s Domain Renewal Failure is Blamed on Human & Process Error

Marketo is a marketing automation platform which in late July had to apologize to customers over downtime. Downtime was caused because users could not log in to their accounts due to the main domain, Marketo.com had not been renewed. The primary domain is used for users to login to the automation platform, however a number of ancillary domains and services were also adversely impacted too as a follow-on effect. Marketo CEO, Steve Lucas cited “human and process error” as the primary culprit while hordes of frustrated users took to Social Media to vent, while the company pointed fingers at the... Read More »

Digital Transformation Myth Busting

Aligning Technology & Enterprise Architecture with Business Vision Working with companies in the mid and enterprise spaces, there are three major common themes that are continuously repeated: Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, and Digital Transformation. Underlining this ‘Big Three” are the issues of security, application/usability, and how do we build an enterprise architecture which can deliver on the promises and opportunities created from them? Digital Transformation is rightly viewed as the essential, strategic prerequisite for how organizations will grow and perform in the future. How transformation strategy is implemented, managed, and used will determine future success. What is clear... Read More »

Accelerate Digital Transformation & Innovation Through Lean BPM

Beating the “Innovation Dilemma” and treating Digital Transformation as a starting point. Innovation is crucial to business performance and success, and Digital Transformation is the precursor to creating the environment within which innovators can thrive. The key point here is that transforming organizations into digital ones is a major challenge, and probably the biggest business challenge for the majority of them, however Digital Transformation is just the starting point and not an end goal. Digital Transformation is a prerequisite for future business success because it opens the door to innovation and the ability to break the mold into which so... Read More »
