While MS SharePoint is often the answer for various tasks or workflow functions where the process or workflow is kept within a small team of individuals, it falls short in its ability to automate intricate, mission critical processes. For instance, think of an Excel spreadsheet. With only a few people using and updating the information in the spreadsheet, it is rather easy to manage by utilizing SharePoint.
However, expanding this same process of updating and obtaining information from one single Excel sheet across multiple departments or an entire corporation spells chaos. Managing processes, users, and applications across the enterprise is where a BPM suite becomes necessary to implement, as it has several key functions:
- Process administration and management capabilities across the enterprise
- Organization and job function management capabilities distinct from process definitions
- Business rules engine where rules can be reutilized and repurposed across all processes
