bpmNEXT: Remixing BPM for the digital age

Blog: MWD Advisors

Last week I was lucky enough to present in the ‘business of BPM’ track at the fourth annual bpmNEXT conference in Santa Barbara, CA.

My session at bpmNEXT was on ‘Remixing BPM for the digital age’. The main point I made: BPM technologies deliver capabilities that all organisations pursuing a digital transformation agenda need – work co-ordination and knowledge sharing at scale; the ability to change quickly and with confidence; and transparent performance insights (to drive optimisation and change). However – at the moment many organisations pursuing these agendas don’t see BPM technology as part of the solution.

Here are my slides. Let me know if you’d like me to chat through them!

bpmNEXT is a pretty technical onference that’s ostensibly for ‘BPM industry insiders’, but it’s become clear that inquiring enterprises are also interested. What’s more, this event isn’t only about BPM (or not in the sense that it’s so often defined). It’s becoming a conference that explores the future of work automation more broadly… and I think it’s actually better because of that.

The majority of the agenda comprised 5-minute ‘ignite talks’, followed by technical demos, from technology vendors and service providers. Topics covered included:


For a detailed session-by-session account of the conference, Sandy Kemsley has delivered her usual live-blog spread out across a number of posts starting here… it’s worth checking out.

Next year I’d love to see more representation from newer vendors with fresh takes on work support and automation.. maybe Quip, Process.St, Zapier, Workfront, DropTask, UIPath, Trello or even Slack…
