BIR 2015 Keynote

The Next Wave of Research in Business Process Management

Manfred Reichert

Invited Keynote at 14th Int'l Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2015)
Tartu, Estonia, 27 August 2015, 9:00 AM

Business Process Management (BPM) has been evolving as a research discipline for more than a decade and a multitude of innovative concepts, methods and techniques have been suggested, e.g., related to process modeling languages, process model analyses, process enactment infrastructures, process flexibility, and process mining. Although BPM has matured as a research discipline, there is still a gap between its promises and its actual achievements in practice. This keynote speech will reflect on this gap, discuss emerging challenges, and relate BPM research to current waves like "Big Data", "Big Software" and "Cloud Computing", which provide new prospects for future BPM research.
