Process-driven Business Intelligence: Building Smarter Business Processes
The concept of BAM revolved around the notion that data could be gathered at critical points and information produced that could give businesses the ability to make better decisions on a near-real-time basis.
This next-generation BAM initiative, called process-driven business intelligence (BI), begins with a simple design notion: decision-making is a fundamental aspect of any operational business process. As such, decision-making capabilities and analytics should be embedded into the design of a process, not added after-the-fact or in reaction to processes that do not work efficiently. With this type of intelligent process design, the need for decision-making is anticipated as an integral part of each process, resulting in business processes that work smarter, not harder, in improving business efficiency and performance.
