Now it’s no surprise to us to be recognized again given our disruptive customer-first business model. But beyond the positioning of individual vendors this report provides a vital annual viewpoint on the direction of travel for this category of technologies and the evolving role of iBPMS / digital business platforms in digital transformation.

This year, Gartner defines the role of an iBPMS as:

“An iBPMS orchestrates an organization’s work to produce business outcomes that can far exceed those from typical process efficiency and performance measures. It enables organizations to improve the business outcomes of all types of work, not just structured and repeatable business processes. It does so without unnecessarily standardizing the activities and flows, and thus orchestrates the work in a situationally adaptive way.”

From my perspective this viewpoint highlights two key insights:

> The huge untapped potential for another level of digital efficiency in organizations across many industries

> The importance of agility in processes and creating systems that can change based on data-driven insights

Being open to change is something that depends on the agility of the platform that you’re working with, but the key thing here is that it won’t be enough unless you build intelligence into the processes and leverage your data to its full potential.

Intelligence is the key to digital business

Intelligence really is the critical element for delivering against these aspirations of efficiency and agility in a way that delivers results. With intelligence built in, organizations can continuously improve on the success over time using the analytics that only digital processes provide.

Success in the digital age demands this kind of actionable, advanced analytics to “more-intelligently orchestrate business operations across the virtual and physical worlds” by continuously generating insights from situational context using both historical and real-time information.

Whatever the requirement, putting a connecting wrap around your existing systems is pivotal to enabling change. Doing so unlocks the intelligence that’s often trapped inside the organization. Through this, it facilitates a different way of working for staff, a new experience for customers and a more effective way of doing business.
