>As we embark on a new era of digital economy, it
>is no longer sufficient for organizations to rely
>on the use of piecemeal technologies, working in
>isolation and super-imposed on rigid structures
>and systems.
>Furthermore, the new information-based economy
>requires a real departure from a
>functionally-based modus
>operandi to one which is based on agility,
>flexibility, responsiveness and mass
>customization. The concept
>of business process management (BPM) is an
>overdue major re-alignment of the ethos of
>value-adding principles.
>It ensures that activities are integrated to
>provide high levels of synergy and focus. BPM
>seeks to optimize
>the various capabilities that exist in business
>organizations and has the potential to eliminate
>the various
>impediments from which organizations tend to
>suffer. However, the challenges that
>organizations face when
>considering the use of the BPM approach are numerous.
>Appropriate topics for the track include, but
>are not limited to the following:
>- Business process modelling, analysis and design
>- Inter- and intra-organizational process support
