BPM Pure-play

BPM pure-play software includes commercially available software products that have all these features:

  • Process orchestration engine

  • Human-to-human workflow
  • Monitoring and analysis capabilities
  • Offline simulation
  • System-to-system integration
  • Business process performance reporting
