Using ESB technology as a foundation for BPM
At the surface, business process management (BPM) and enterprise service bus (ESB) can appear to solve the same problems, but the strengths of each are vastly different.

This guide shines light on how an ESB can complement BPM, and the best practices in selecting BPMs and ESBs. Inside, learn more about where each is appropriate, how to design your solution, and how to use the two in tandem to deliver superior business value.
