Cloud the way forward in India - the 4th wave of the IT Industry 1.

Every so often, you’ll see us refer to a term called BPM on the blog. BPM stands for Business Process Management. BPM is the process of analyzing and improving business processes to create a more efficient and effective organization. Okay, so what is a business process?

The Most Important Question to Ask Before Automating Your Workflow (and Two Bad Answers) Having automated workflows sounds like a sexy thing. And it is. It feels pretty awesome to be able to initiate a process with a button and forget about it while the work gets done. But that doesn’t mean you have to automate every process in your office. I mean, I think people can take care of replacing the copy paper on their own, right? Right? Come on, people.
