SOA & BPM Practice
Any business comprises of sequences of activities or processes that are performed by their relevant roles or collaborators, to tenaciously accomplish the common business goal. These sequences of processes differs from one organization to other depending on number of factors such as industry vertical, employee strength, IT infrastructure, etc.
Business Process Management (BPM) is a strategic way of organizing and improving all these processes thus making it more efficient and effective. BPM attempts to improve processes continuously thus meeting the requirements of ever changing environment. It can therefore be described as a "process optimization process”.
Our SOA & BPM Approach
Initiating an SOA program can be a daunting task in itself. Fulcrum’s Agile SOA approach breaks the SOA program down into manageable chunks. Still, it is very important to have success and measurable ROI early on in the process. Even a well planned and executed SOA program may fail if there is no early ROI, leading stakeholders to lose faith and patience in it.
With that perspective, selecting an appropriate ‘Pilot’ project is critical to the success of the SOA program. As depicted in the figure to the right, not all projects are suitable as a Pilot. Fulcrum helps clients select and deliver an appropriate Pilot Project, thereby demonstrating the benefits and ROI of SOA. This Pilot Project is executed, not as an IT experiment, but as a Proof of Concept, with the participation of business and executive stakeholders also. This is done to avoid insufficient buy-in of the necessary stakeholders, which is a common pitfall leading to failed SOA initiatives. An integrated team is formed, as shown below.
