Gartner Announces Business Process Management Summit 2010

March 22-24 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas

As more enterprises continue to embrace business process management (BPM) to further improve business performance in the upward climb from these challenging times, the quest will increasingly push BPM beyond its initial focus on structured processes into more challenging, cross-boundary processes. In fact, by 2014, 40 percent of business managers and knowledge workers in Global 2000 enterprises will use comprehensive business process models to support their daily work, up from 6 percent in 2009.

The Gartner Business Process Management Summit will provide a 360° approach on which every successful BPM program is built. With a unique focus on organizational change, IT and business collaboration, pattern recognition & best practices, the Summit delivers leading-edge knowledge on how to create and sustain a best-in-class BPM program.
