Some process applications can be implemented easily, but all BPM applications require the discipline and rigor that are the fundamental foundation for developing business applications. In fact, you can argue that BPM's business-centric user population actually exacerbates the need for this architectural rigor. Many business users do not understand the underlying complexities associated with application runtimes and IT needs to ensure the applications are optimized. In short, just because BPM appears to be "simple" - organizations still need sound architecture to ensure robust applications. In this column, we discuss key architectural aspects that are critical for building an optimized BPM application with references to case studies and for crafting BPM solutions that are architecturally sound.
