BPM (Business Process Management)
Business Process Management (BPM) is a term from business administration, referring to creating, identifying, documenting, controlling and optimising business processes.
Since many business processes are done with the help of electronic data processing, Business Process Management also affects the DP components involved.
What systems are used?
Many business processes are designed using ERP systems. Document Management Systems also play a role, especially in business processes which are based on document-tied information. Electronic Document Management, ERP, PPC and Financial Accountancy systems in many cases form the company software's core.
