Let's face it, most of us work for the same person. No, I'm not referring to Ginni Rometty (although for many of you, that's not a bad guess) -- I'm talking about the customer. And in the day-to-day routine, it can be easy to lose sight of who really signs your paycheck.
Business process management is all about maintaining a focus on the needs of the customer by enabling business and IT to collaborate effectively. Seems like a pretty important topic, doesn't it? We think so. That's why developerWorks is rolling out a new Business process management zone, where you can build and refine your understanding of BPM and learn how it can improve your business processes. Visit our New to BPM page to get acquainted with BPM fundamentals and the IBM software products that can help you put BPM into practice. Or, if you're ready for more advanced coverage and perspectives, turn to the quarterly IBM BPM Journal. I've also added a new BPM section to this newsletter, which appears below for all subscribers. If you want to see the section in upcoming issues, please update your newsletter profile to include the "Business process management" topic.
And let me know if you have any questions or concerns, because (that's right) you're the boss.
Until next week,
John Swanson and the developerWorks editorial team
