BPM on SOA: Still the Exception

Blog: Method & Style (Bruce Silver)

The following is my latest column for BPM Institute:

You can?t attend a BPM conference or webcast nowadays without hearing how SOA provides the critical technology underpinnings of BPM software. And there is even a grain of truth in that statement. For example, most BPM Suites provide integration adapters that can introspect backend systems and turn them into process components that are, in an important sense, service-oriented: Regardless of the internal platform, programming API, or data model of the backend system, integration adapters can expose functions of those systems via XML parameters, perhaps even an actual WSDL, and allow the process engine to orchestrate them without code. That?s huge, really the key to making application integration more agile and enabling point-and-click composition of end-to-end process implementations.

But in the SOA world, that?s not really SOA.
