Gartner defines business processes as the coordination of the behavior of people, systems and things to produce specific business outcomes. "Things" in this context refers to devices that are part of the Internet of Things (IoT). A BPM platform minimally includes: a graphical business process and/or rule modeling capability, a process registry/repository to handle the modeling metadata, a process execution engine and a state management engine or rule engine (or both). The three types of BPM platforms — basic BPM platforms, business process management suites (BPMSs), and intelligent business process management suites (iBPMSs) — can help solution architects and business outcome owners accelerate application development, transform business processes, and digitalize business processes to exploit business moments by providing capabilities that manage different aspects of the business process life cycle.
