Top 5 business process management (BPM) trends for 2019

Artificial intelligence, robotics, case management. Want to know what trends will shape the BPM industry this year?

In recent years, more organisations have looked to streamline business processes and build leaner, more efficient business models.

Consequently, the importance of BPM has been elevated as organisations seek to stay ahead of the curve by putting technology in place to allow for streamlined processes and continued growth and expansion.

This is supported by analyst reports revealing the BPM market was worth nearly $8 billion last year and is forecast to grow at a double-digit rate to 2025.

In this blog, we predict the top 5 trends in BPM over the next 12 months. While some trends are new, others have been highlighted before but are now reaching maturity and we expect them to reach critical mass this year.

Sadly, we are not Nostradamus though; so these predictions are based on our industry/product knowledge and conversations with partners and customers.

Last month, we read an article in IT Pro with the headline Failed NHS IT system will cost £7m to stabilise.

As we read more, it became apparent that 14,600 patient discharge summaries had not been sent to GPs due to an error with a records management system.

As an IT consultancy that works with many NHS Trusts and clinical trial organisations, we found ourselves asking "how did this happen?"

At a time when many organisations are undertaking digital transformation projects, why do many IT or BPM projects fail? At ePC, we do not believe they fail (you’d expect us to say that, right?) but, over the years, we have identified a number of red flags that need to be addressed early for projects to be successful.

These red flags can be found during both the planning - and build – phase of an IT project.
