Talk about Process Flexibility at the University of Seville

sevillaIn June 2012, Barbara Weber gave a talk at the University of Seville, Spain. In her presentation she addressed process flexibility issues and introduced our new book

Enabling Flexibility in Process-aware Information Systems:
Challenges, Methods, Technologies

Abstract. The economic success of enterprises increasingly depends on their ability to react to changes in their environment in a quick and flexible way. Companies have heretofore identified business agility as a competitive advantage to address business trends like increasing product and service variability and faster time-to-market and process-aware information systems (PAISs) are getting increasingly popular. In response to the need for flexible and easily adaptable PAIS, different paradigms and technologies for realizing flexible PAIS have emerged. Examples include adaptive, constraint-based and data-driven approaches. This talk will present a comprehensive review of the challenges that exist for flexible PAIS, and it will give detailed insights into concepts, paradigms and technologies for their realization. Flexibility issues are discussed along the phases of the process lifecycle (i.e., design, modelling, configuration, execution, monitoring, and evolution). The talk not only covers flexibility requirements and enabling technologies for pre-specified processes, but also for loosely specified ones.

BPM is not just about making diagrams. The real challenge is to realize information systems that support processes without jeopardizing flexibility.

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.

_ Albert Einstein

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
