Invited Keynote at IWEI'13, 28 March 2013, Enschede, The Netherlands

Abstract. The economic success of enterprises increasingly depends on their ability to react to changes in their environment in a quick and flexible way. Examples of such changes include regulatory adaptations (e.g. introduction of Sarbanes-Oxley or Basel II), market evolution, altered customer behavior, process improvement, and strategy shifts. Companies have therefore identified business agility as a competitive advantage required for coping with business trends like increasing product and service variability, faster time-to-market, and increasing division of labor along the supply chain. In particular, the agile enterprise should be able to quickly set up new business processes as well as to adapt existing ones. However, networked enterprises must not accomplish such process changes independent from the interactions they have with their partners and customers; e.g., business contracts and business compliance rules must be ensured after process changes as well. This keynote discussed major research challenges to be tackled in this context. Further, it presented advanced methods, concepts and technologies enabling collaboration and interoperability support for the agile enterprise in a networked world.

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

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.
