Convergence of BI and BPM Examined

Holger Kisker in the Forrester blog writes about the convergence of business intelligence and business process management. ' ... When business processes finally become intelligent? Over the past several months I have done a lot of research on the BI market, the trends and the vendor landscape. There is a clear indication that BI solutions are becoming more sophisticated, more intelligent and – more integrated into other applications to enhance the performance of the application supported business processes...' .

See also colleague Mark Montgomery's comments about his long-time work in this area using semantic methods. He also cites this intriguing intelligence domain case scenario, using the KYield system. I think that one way to insert intelligence into BPM systems is to use increasingly sophisticated BI systems to tailor the relationships necessary. The automating of this into fully adapting systems is a big challenge with considerable potential benefits.
