Our book, Business and Dynamic Change: the Arrival of Business Architecture, highlighted many needs of BPM. The book which was announced in 2015 describes an overall view of architecture from several different perspectives and contains a series of chapters that give specific applications and approaches to different architecture uses. At this conference, you will see some of those visionary BPM software innovations being presented.

bpmNEXT 2020 has been postponed as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. We are still in the process of determining when the future date will be and the location where it will be held." Please see bpmNext.com for further information.

Now in its 8th year, bpmNEXT remains the definitive showcase of the next generation of Intelligent Automation software – covering Process Mining and Advanced Analytics, AI and Machine Learning, Robotic Process Automation, , Decision Management, Digital Transformation, and new cloud software architecture built on containers and REST services. This is no typical “how to” conference aimed at newbies. It is designed specifically for those already chest-deep in Intelligent Automation technology and eager to get in early on its next round of technology innovation – to touch it, see it, and influence it.

bpmNEXT has consistently been the defining launch pad for the ideas and innovations surrounding technology-led business process innovation. Presentations are not case studies of past successes, but vision statements on where we are going next.

The venue is SPECTACULAR: blending modern design with Spanish Colonial architecture, the Canary is a luxury boutique hotel in the heart of the city known as “America’s Riviera” with views from the mountains to the Pacific, and walking distance to the best that Santa Barbara has to offer.

The interaction is INTENSE: you will not just hear about Intelligent Automation, but see it in action and engage with the developers actively shaping the next generation.

The BPM and Case Management Global Summit on June 27 – 29, in Washington, D.C. conference. Our book on Business and Dynamic Change: the Arrival of Business Architecture will be available. This book has 14 articles by various authors who provide their insight and view on architecture as applied to organization today.

Business Dynamic Change 2015

The book was announced in 2015 and was divided into two parts: Part 1 describes the overall view of architecture from several different perspectives and Part 2 contains a series of chapters that give specific applications and approaches to different architecture uses.

Part 1 – Getting your arms (and your head) around the whole architecture space is not an easy task. These chapters introduce several variations with a lot of commonality on how to look at business architecture. Each of these has been used with success. With over 65 management models today and as many methodologies and analytical approaches, the big picture is really a work in progress. As the ideas are sorted out and worked into viable frameworks for representing an organization the value of business architecture efforts will greatly increase.

IBD partners with KCI partners in two key chapters in this part of the book:

  • Frank Kowalkowski’s chapter sets the stage by describing 4 perspective architectures titled ‘Making Sense out of the Architecture Jungle.’ This chapter contains detail on what goes into the External Architecture (XA) that represent the business landscape and the Strategic Architecture (SA) that represents the organization response to the external environment. With Business Architecture (BA) and Enterprise Architecture (EA) you have a complete view of the structure the organization must deal with to survive and flourish.
  • Gil Laware’s key companion chapter discusses making the transition from the current to future architecture states. In his article ‘Converting Decision-to-Action’, this chapter points out that you drive change from decisions the management must make. This implies a need to connect architectures together vertically and horizontally to affect their transition and find a solution to the needs of the organization.


Part 2 - Sometimes you need to get into the gritty details of the architecture work. Here are some specific uses and applications of architecture concepts. Some are enterprise wide and some are specific to parts of the architecture. In each case the author(s) provides the rationale in applying the architecture concepts described.

We’re equally excited to let you know we will be conducting the first full day workshop on the perspective architecture concept and its implications. This approach follows the principle that architecture must do more than document things. There should be analytics that provide the analyst with input to draw conclusions about change in the organization. The workshop covers each perspective in separate sections. Hands-on exercises illustrate the analytics used to connect architectures together to get practical results.
