BPM is a discipline that leverages software and services to provide total visibility into your organization. Discover, document, automate, and continuously improve business processes to increase efficiency and reduce costs.
If you are new to the field, have a look at the “BPM for Dummies” mini ebook.

IBM recently released IBM BPM v8.0 with many new, redesigned or improved capabilities, one of them kept my attention. There is an iOS application allowing users to collaborate on BPM, right from their mobile devices.
“The BPM app provides a single view that consolidates tasks from multiple IBM process sources. Built with ease of use and collaboration in mind, it allows users to interact with others to ensure that the right people are working on the right thing at the right time.”
The application is freely available on the Apple App Store (but requires a BPM backend)
