How the "Internet of Things" May Change the World

How the "Internet of Things" May Change the World | bpm and adaptive case management | Scoop.it
Wireless connectivity of billions of objects offers many benefits--and risks.

Via Alexander Crépin
Layna Fischer's insight:

"But what exactly is the Internet of things, and how might the emerging technology change our lives?


"The Internet of things is a concept that aims to extend the benefits of the regular Internet—constant connectivity, remote control ability, data sharing, and so on—to goods in the physical world. Foodstuffs, electronics, appliances, collectibles: All would be tied to local and global networks through embedded sensors that are "always on.""

With estimates of 30 billion or more connected devices, there will be far too many devices and interactions will be far too complex to keep pace with traditional software techniques.


The only way to make sense of the flow of information is to visualize them as part of processes that exchange and process the information byproduct forming something we call BPM Everywhere.


A new book coming out soon; “BPM Everywhere” will be the most important BPM book of 2015, addressing the reality of digital business and what the impact of the Internet of Things is presenting for business processes and architectures, not in some distant scenario but today!


The book will discuss critical issues currently facing BPM adopters and practitioners, such as the key roles played by process mining uncovering engagement patterns and the need for process management platforms to coordinate interaction and control of smart devices.

"Internet of Your Things" (Microsoft), "Internet of everything" (Cisco), IoT (Intel)... whatever it is called, this is more than a reality... This is an opportunity !

Etain Limited's curator insight, February 17, 2015 8:38 AM

We've all thought about 'the latest' gadget or piece of software and imagined how it would change our lives. Even something as simple as the latest smart phone (remember when you just fantasised about Snake 2 on the early Nokia handsets?)....most of us have thought about it, purchased it and integrated it into our every day. But how often do you think about how technology and this new level of connectivity is changing the world?

Building Smart Cities With BPM - CXOtoday.com

Building Smart Cities With BPM - CXOtoday.com | bpm and adaptive case management | Scoop.it

The term ‘Smart City’ is no longer new today, but it still feels like a concept out of a science fiction novel. In reality, a city that thinks, adapts to change, and meets the dynamic needs of its resident population fits into this category. Although still an emerging concept, there has been a lot of talk of recent around this ‘promised’ smart and ‘empowered’ future of our burgeoning urban dwellings. In simple terms, a smart city is a type of urban development that leverages the latest in technology to deliver a smart, responsive, eco-sustainable and highly connected living experience to its residents.

Layna Fischer's insight:
You'll read more about this concept in this important paper...Woots: Smart Things that Can Think, Act, Learn and Talk.Surendra Reddy, CEO, Quantiply, USA

This paper discusses on the adoption of smart analytics and business process intelligence into Smart Things to realize the Web of Open Things (Woots), how to improve interoperability, reduce the overall architectural complexity, and facilitate the integration of processes, people, and things.

True So Far? -- 2015 Predictions from Top Influencers

True So Far? -- 2015 Predictions from Top Influencers | bpm and adaptive case management | Scoop.it
BPM software vendors and the top BPM thought leaders share their views on what to look for, and what their plans are for 2015.
Layna Fischer's insight:

Has this line-up of top industry thought leaders in January this year has been borne out in reality so far this year?


Nathaniel Palmer, BPM.com, explains...

Each year BPM pundits (like us) make pronouncements around this time of the calendar, claiming that this will be THE year for the breakout of BPM. Just as predictably the cynics moan “You always say that! This year will be no different than the last one.


The truth is, they’re both right. BPM has advanced year over year, continuously transforming not only itself but the environments where it is applied. Its “banner years” are hard to distinguish from any other, yet in no year has BPM failed to deliver. At this moment, as we look forward over the next 12 months, there can no doubt it will again be a banner year for BPM. Yet is also indisputably different. This will be better than we have seen before.


In the past we described BPM in terms of its potential, what it could do if only businesses and other enterprises were ready to fully leverage it. Now we can measure what it has done, how it has truly transformed not only operations but expectations.


Enterprises who have adopted BPM are forever changed for the better. The proof-points, once elusive, are now easy to find and impossible to ignore.


Yet all of this is part of the beginning, not the end, of any inflexion point in the trajectory of change – of everything. This is the arrival of digital disruption, which recognizes no finite boundaries on what it will change. Everything today that we see, touch, buy, consume, require to live – it will all be affected in one capacity or another.

...

To help frame this vision, we asked both leading BPM software vendors and the top BPM thought leaders to share their views on what to look for, and what their plans are for 2015.


Many of these predictions were published in full in the recent book,  BPM Everywhere, Internet of Things, Process of Everything

Improving Enterprise Business Process Management Systems

Improving Enterprise Business Process Management Systems | bpm and adaptive case management | Scoop.it
Iceberg of processes within an enterprise
Processes within an enterprise are not equally visible.
Layna Fischer's insight:

Alexander Samarin shares very important insights on how both classic BPM and classic ACM are about coordination of business activities to achieve particular results. But both of them use different coordination techniques.


He recently contributed an excellent chapter to Thriving on Adaptability that discusses coordination as a potential base for a common view on BPM and ACM.


It is an updated version of  his paper on how to understand how separate processes work together as one functional whole (i.e. a System Of Processes -- SOP) at the scale of an enterprise. Use of processes (and constructions related to them ) will reduce the undesired complexity of an enterprise, improve understanding of its structure and behavior which thus facilitates the management and evolution of the enterprise.

Don’t hold your breath for the industrial IoT platform

Don’t hold your breath for the industrial IoT platform | bpm and adaptive case management | Scoop.it
The industrial IoT is messy, and early adopters should be ready for some DIY before platforms emerge.
Layna Fischer's insight:

"The industrial IoT will eventually eclipse consumer markets, in terms of both the number of connected devices and the volume and value of connections. But the market’s potential is so large because it’s not just one market. The only thing salinity sensors, tire pressure monitors and nuclear density gauges have in common is that they’re all very important devices that someone wants to connect (though not necessarily to one another).


"The industrial IoT is a nearly limitless collection of use cases, each with its own ecosystem of hardware, APIs, networks, security protocols and financial constraints. And unlike the consumer industry, which is forced by markets toward openness and standardization, it’s perfectly reasonable to expect that in many industries, vendors will create and maintain proprietary standards for the foreseeable future. All of that adds up to a mess for the enterprise, device manufacturer, or ISV that wants to get the jump on their competition and lead the charge."


Be interesting to see what emerges from the minds and thoughts of the co-authors on the upcoming book "BPM Everywhere: BPM and the Internet of Things." 


The book will discuss critical issues currently facing BPM adopters and practitioners, such as the key roles played by process mining uncovering engagement patterns and the need for process management platforms to coordinate interaction and control of smart devices.

Entering Business Awards Vanity or Sanity? |Chris Robinson of Boost Marketing | The Good Web Guide | bpm and adaptive case management | Scoop.it

Chris Robinson of Boost Marketing talks to The Good Web Guide about whether entering awards is for vanity or sanity.... With awards seemingly popping up all over the place, businesses could be forgiven for wondering just how valuable such a stamp of approval is. "


To answer this, awards specialists Boost Marketing teamed up with market researchers, Shape-the-Future, to conduct a major market research exercise involving 400 business decision makers. 

Layna Fischer's insight:

Their research shows that overwhelmingly, when making a business purchasing decision, customers definitely take into account whether the supplier had received any kind of award recognition. 


"The survey showed once and for all that industry awards really do make a difference in a business-to-business context. The survey found that 82% of those taking part admitted to being influenced by awards when buying products and services for their business. This statistic does vary depending on the product or service under consideration, for example the statistic is 72% for financial services and over 90% for construction services."


The prestigious annual Global Awards for Excellence in BPM and Workflow are highly coveted by organizations that seek recognition for their achievements. The BPM awards not only provide a spotlight for companies that truly deserve recognition, but also provide tremendous insights for organizations wishing to emulate the winners’ successes.

Delving deep into the art of the social business

Delving deep into the art of the social business | bpm and adaptive case management | Scoop.it
“Experience shows that people always find better ways to do things."
Layna Fischer's insight:

Social BPM is emerging as the next step in BPM evolution but few organisations understand it clearly or have implemented it effectively.


Business Process Management and Collaboration are, by their very nature, social activities.  See "Social BPM"


The collaboration and communication patterns that are now increasingly referred to as “social computing” were also fundamental to the BPM and workflow models of the early 1990s.  Yet it has been the explosion of social computing and accompanying success of social production which has the most dramatic impact on collaboration in business environments. 


As explained by BPM expert, Dr. Michael zur Muehlen, “If you only focus on streamlining process execution and making it as efficient as possible the social aspect diminishes. But if you consider process discovery, the development of a shared understanding of what your operations look like, and monitoring your process environment, then social plays a big role.

"Social is all about providing context, a rich environment of data points that a streamlined workflow would be lacking otherwise. The challenge is to make this context useful, both from a social networking perspective and from an unstructured data perspective.”

OBA outcomes - business capabilities, capability models - form the conditions and environment where an implementation of architectural solutions may take place.
Layna Fischer's insight:

Frank Kowalkowski has boosted a very important, and difficult to many, theme: “How many times have we heard management ask what value is there in all this architecture/blueprint stuff?


His following questions are based on the perception of the first one and they are: “What can you do for us in the next few months? We don’t have time for a two (2) year project? Are there any quick fixes or low hanging fruit that architecture can give me? Can you save me any money on this effort?” Let me try to answer these questions for you.


Frank states that “A key value of architecture to business management is in support of business transformation… A practical example to show value is to select a typical management situation and demonstrate value to management not just describe what architecture is all about or just document the structure of the enterprise.


Great! The entire puzzle to Business Architecture is resolved.

BPM of Things: A New Market Opportunity

This month, the Apple Watch officially went on pre-sale – one million were ordered the first day.  The Apple Watch will soon reveal that when the Internet of Things embraces ‘smart objects, the market will see an even great opportunity – the BPM (business process management) of Things, says BonitaSoft’s Philippe Ozil.
Layna Fischer's insight:

Philippe Ozil @bonitasoft totally gets it about BPM and IoT.

 

Philippe says "...BPM adds value to IoT projects. As smart objects connect to BPM, they extend their intelligence. As objects get more and more integrated into business processes, BPM will provide orchestration. The result: the “Things” in IoT become not just smart objects, but smart connected objects that provide a new, powerful way to interact with a process..."

 

BPM Everywhere: Internet of Things, Process of Everything is a unique book that presents strategies for leveraging, not simply surviving, but fully exploiting the wave of disruption facing every business over the next five years and beyond.


People, Things and Processes that run in this connected world leave behind vast digital footprints of these processes, things, people, interactions, and daily rhythms of the society.

 

For example, in his chapter “Woots: Smart Things that Can Think, Act, Learn and Talk,” Surendra Reddy introduces Woots that are everyday Smart Things with a specific identity, intelligence, address and presence on the Internet and capabilities to self-organize and communicate with other things with or without human intervention.


“Big Data” has never been so large, nor presented such an acute role within enterprises and the processes that drive them. BPME as well as traditional BPM methods can already be found at the center of this. Its role will grow exponentially.

Jim Sinur: Internet Of Things and Process Yields Big Dividends Together

Jim Sinur: Internet Of Things and Process Yields Big Dividends Together | bpm and adaptive case management | Scoop.it
Internet Of Things and Process Yields Big Dividends Together
Combining the Internet of  Things (IoT) with process will be a big deal throughout the next 5 years or more. I have already seen the benefit of the combination of the two of these, even in early days. The obvious use of IoT and BPM is in the traditional sense and respond design pattern, but there is more to the Process of Every Thing (PET).
Layna Fischer's insight:

The greatest impact on business process over the last 5 years has not come specifically from technology, or at least not technology alone.  Instead, the one fundamental change that holds the great potential for business disruption, and similarly offers the greatest opportunity for innovation, is the dramatic shift in customer expectations.  As we discuss in our new book, the inability to adapt existing systems fast enough to keep pace with evolving customer expectations is the single great challenge reported by the nearly 1,000 companies we surveyed.


Resolving this challenge is what today drives most BPM investments and digital transformation initiatives.  Yet it is far from a stopgap measure.  What we are seeing now is the beginning, not the end, of an inflexion point in the trajectory of change – of everything.  This is the arrival of digital disruption, which recognizes no finite boundaries on what it will change. 


Everything today that we see, touch, buy, consume, require to live – it will all be affected in one capacity or another.  We are entering an entirely new phase of BPM – the era of “BPM Everywhere” or BPME.

Business Process Management, Inc. - Why the Internet of Things (IoT) Should be on the Radar of Every CIO

Business Process Management, Inc. - Why the Internet of Things (IoT) Should be on the Radar of Every CIO | bpm and adaptive case management | Scoop.it
The ability to connect, communicate with and remotely manage an incalculable number of networked, automated devices via the Internet is becoming pervasive.
Layna Fischer's insight:

What do these changes mean for Business Process Management (BPM)? In the era of the Internet of Things where smart homes, cameras, appliances, cars, apparel, robots, drones, human communication tools (mobile, desktop) and more with every imaginable device connected, BPM must be everywhere.


With estimates of 30 billion or more connected devices, there will be far too many devices and interactions will be far too complex to keep pace with traditional software techniques.

The only way to make sense of the flow of information is to visualize them as part of processes that exchange and process the information byproduct forming something we call BPM Everywhere.


Launched jointly by the Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) and Future Strategies, Inc., “BPM Everywhere” will be the most important BPM book of 2015, addressing the reality of digital business and what the impact of the Internet of Things is presenting for business processes and architectures, not in some distant scenario but today!


The book will discuss critical issues currently facing BPM adopters and practitioners, such as the key roles played by process mining uncovering engagement patterns and the need for process management platforms to coordinate interaction and control of smart devices.

Jim Sinur: Managing Work with Adaptive Case Management

Jim Sinur: Managing Work with Adaptive Case Management | bpm and adaptive case management | Scoop.it

Adaptive Case Management(ACM) is a popular topic these days. When managing work, there are many ways to deal with classes of work (aka use cases). Typically we stick to the methods and tools that we first learn and are skilled in dealing with work management. If you want to learn how ACM can help you, there are a couple of opportunities coming up that you might want to participate in soon.

Layna Fischer's insight:

Jim's insights have led the industry's thinking for many years, before he was even top process analyst at Gartner. As an independent thought leader in applying BPM to innovative and intelligent business operations, Jim now presents the advantages of Adaptive Case Management as an approach to work that supports knowledge workers to get their work done. 

 

The Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) inaugurated a Global Awards program in 2011 for Adaptive Case Management case studies to recognize and focus upon Case Management (both adaptive and production) use cases.


These awards are designed to highlight the best examples of technology to support knowledge workers.


If you are a service provider, the Awards are important to you if your product or service helps people coordinate their tasks.  It is OK if you don't call it "case management."

How the "Internet of Things" May Change the World

How the "Internet of Things" May Change the World | bpm and adaptive case management | Scoop.it
Wireless connectivity of billions of objects offers many benefits--and risks.

Layna Fischer's insight:

"But what exactly is the Internet of things, and how might the emerging technology change our lives?


"The Internet of things is a concept that aims to extend the benefits of the regular Internet—constant connectivity, remote control ability, data sharing, and so on—to goods in the physical world. Foodstuffs, electronics, appliances, collectibles: All would be tied to local and global networks through embedded sensors that are "always on.""

With estimates of 30 billion or more connected devices, there will be far too many devices and interactions will be far too complex to keep pace with traditional software techniques.


The only way to make sense of the flow of information is to visualize them as part of processes that exchange and process the information byproduct forming something we call BPM Everywhere.


A new book coming out soon; “BPM Everywhere” will be the most important BPM book of 2015, addressing the reality of digital business and what the impact of the Internet of Things is presenting for business processes and architectures, not in some distant scenario but today!


The book will discuss critical issues currently facing BPM adopters and practitioners, such as the key roles played by process mining uncovering engagement patterns and the need for process management platforms to coordinate interaction and control of smart devices.

"Internet of Your Things" (Microsoft), "Internet of everything" (Cisco), IoT (Intel)... whatever it is called, this is more than a reality... This is an opportunity !

We've all thought about 'the latest' gadget or piece of software and imagined how it would change our lives. Even something as simple as the latest smart phone (remember when you just fantasised about Snake 2 on the early Nokia handsets?)....most of us have thought about it, purchased it and integrated it into our every day. But how often do you think about how technology and this new level of connectivity is changing the world?
