Benifets like 75% of successful businesses make extensive use of BPM and SOA. Robert said there would be preview copies available which hopefully I will be able to get a copy of. The study should be available mid-May. Robert is discussing agile businesses. How individual IBM customers are becoming more agile.
Kaiser Permente is a healthcare provider and is really making changes to the way they work. Their CEO is speaking about the evolution of medical records from paper charts, to ecectronic records, predictive analytics and personalised records.
