Process Apps and the Future of Business Processes: Speaking with Romeo Elias

Posted by | Intellect News | One Comment

Listen to my podcast with Romeo Elias, the Founder and CEO of Interneer, Inc. Romeo Elias is a BPM expert and in this podcast we discuss the recent announcement from Interneer about Smart Mobile Apps, their system to enable the creation of customized, true native iOS applications for enterprise use.

Schooff: Hello, this is Peter Schooff, Managing Editor at BPM.com and today I have the pleasure of speaking with Romeo Elias, the Founder and CEO of Interneer, Incorporated. He’s an experienced software executive, BPM expert, patented inventor, and entrepreneur advisor and today we’re going to discuss a recent upcoming announcement from Interneer, which is about apps for business processes, which at BPM.com we found really interesting. So first of all Romeo, thank you so much for joining me on the podcast.

Elias:: Thank you, Peter, I appreciate it.

Schooff: So as I’ve prefaced, I found your announcement very interesting. Can you just give me a quick overview of the world of apps for business processes as it is right now and then going forward?

Elias:: Absolutely Peter. The thing that we have been observing in the market, specifically, with the advent of mobility and the whole mobile world is that it’s been very, very disruptive, as you probably know. And today, there are more mobile devices in the world than there are people. This year the sale of tablets and smart phones has exceeded desktops and PCs. Everything is transforming mobility for a day-to-day employee is no longer an option. It has become something that they need to have access to no matter where they’re at.

At the same time, if you look at how mobility has changed the expectation of people and then how they deal with apps, what you’ll notice is that there’s this expectation now that they have to be accessible from anywhere, that they’re very ubiquitous. They have to be very easy, very simple; they do certain things very well. They’re not these complex things that do everything as we’re used to with enterprise apps in the office. And so at the same time, people can download any app they want, they can customize apps, they can get apps that empower them to build things, and change things.

And if you look at what we do with our smart mobile phones today, it’s funny to me that 20 years ago people would say I don’t even know how to program my VCR. Whereas today, they have this massive computer on their phone and they do so many things with it. So this whole self-service nature of it has also become ubiquitous and people just — they expect that they can learn things and do things themselves, and not always have to be relying on experts, and programmers, and so on.

So all those things have changed the expectation on how we deal with apps and specifically business apps. So business apps from a business user standpoint, the expectation is that they have to be easy to use, they have to be easy to change and deploy, they have to be accessible anywhere and ubiquitous, and they also need to access their backend data and systems so that they’re not standalone, something that is completely sitting on an island. And when you look at companies and what options they have today, there’s some limitations and gaps in the market and has the ability to access these kinds of apps and to deploy these for their employees and users and who isn’t able to and this is kind of part of the problem that we’re trying to solve.

Bosch ConnectedWorld conference: Bosch connects the virtual and the real worlds

Posted by | Bosch Inubit Suite News | No Comments

As great numbers of devices are connected to the internet of things, a new domain is being created – one that touches on nearly every facet of our lives. New customer-centric business models are taking shape. At many levels, Bosch is taking advantage of the opportunities that arise.

Stuttgart, 02/06/2014 –

The future is connected. The internet allows objects and devices, entire homes, and even power plants or cities to communicate with each other. By interacting in this way they create what is known as the internet of things, bringing independent components together to form a new domain – and linking together different aspects of life such as energy, the home, mobility, and work. From February 5–6 in Berlin, the “Bosch ConnectedWorld” conference will showcase some of the many possibilities generated by this connectivity megatrend. The conference is being organized by Bosch Software Innovations, the Bosch Group’s software and systems unit, which brings all the group’s activities in this arena under one roof.

Sensors –software –business models

This new connectivity is based on sensors that record data from objects and electrical devices, passing it on via wireless internet connections. A dedicated software program analyzes and combines this data according to different criteria –– and this data interplay gives rise to new business models. For instance, owners of electric vehicles can use an app to reserve a charge spot, while buildings can calculate their energy consumption autonomously and source the electricity they need from a range of suppliers in the most cost-efficient and sustainable way possible.

All components available

Bosch is a world leader when it comes to microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors. Bosch Software Innovations’’ products have already proved their worth in 600 international projects. Wireless networks and energy-saving transmission technology are already widespread. For Denner, one thing is certain: “It isn’t a question of whether the objects will become internet-capable, but when.”

Example of a Bosch application

Bosch has developed a telematics solution that is already helping insurers and leasing companies today, Denner says: “The solution can be used to operate vehicle fleets spread over several locations. Because the system collects data on the condition of the vehicles, repairs can be planned before any damage occurs. Meanwhile, it lets insurance companies offer better rates to people who always drive their vehicle carefully – because that’s also something the sensors can register.”

Four key elements brought together

This application already brings together the four key elements of the connected world: cars (the physical assets), their drivers (private or commercial end users), an enterprise (the fleet operator), and an entire ecosystem of other parties that render the services (auto repair shops, insurers, and other service providers).

Driven by collaboration

“This interaction of sensors, software, and services is the basis of the internet of things,” Denner says. “We are not creating technology for its own sake, but developing new business models whose main concern is customer benefit. That is why the main force driving the connectivity trend is collaboration between companies that have never before had business dealings with each other. All of us – industry, retail, service providers, and tradespeople – have to fully comprehend the possibilities. And we have to cultivate a more ‘connected’ mindset.”

Bosch and the internet of things

Bosch is well positioned to meet this challenge. Bosch Software Innovations develops software and system solutions for the internet of things. Its core product is a software suite that delivers the technical underpinnings for the required networks, enabling companies to Page 3 of 4 implement their new business models straight away. The focus is on fields such as connected mobility, connected energy, smart homes, and smart factories.

In addition, Bosch recently founded a separate company dedicated entirely to the internet of things. Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions GmbHoffers the compact electronic products and the software know-how needed to make devices and objects internet-capable in a wide range of application areas. The company will initially concentrate on sensor-based applications for households (“smart home”) as well as for the transportation, traffic, and logistics segments. Bosch Sensortec is a world leader in micromechanical sensors for the internet of things, with some three million of these tiny components being produced every day at the company’s state-of-the-art wafer fab in Reutlingen, Germany.

Bosch has announced that it is to set up a consortium with ABB, Cisco, and LG to develop a joint “smart home” data standard. What is more, in the“Monaco 3.0” pilot project, which kicked off in November 2013, Bosch has been testing the technologies required to digitally interconnect an entire city. As Denner emphasizes: “Our broad footprint and technological expertise give us a clear innovative advantage on these projects.”

BPM explicado a los altos ejecutivos

Posted by | General | No Comments

En un proyecto BPM la parte que toca a la reingeniería de procesos es tan o más importante que todo lo que tiene que ver con la ejecución de los mismos por los sistemas. Si la involucración de la Alta Dirección de la empresa es clave en cualquier proyecto IT, en el BPM es crítica. Ruth Cernes, Vicepresidente de Ventas y Alianzas de Bonitasoft, nos explica en este documento cómo deben explicarse a los “C” level (altos directivos) los beneficios del BPM.

En el documento se explica cómo debe explicarse el BPM a los diferentes directivos de una empresa: el Director Ejecutivo (CEO), el Director de Operaciones (COO), el Director de Marketing (CMO), el Director de Finanzas (CFO), el Director de Tecnología (CTO), al Director de IT (CIO) y a otros gerentes superiores.

Es importante hacerles ver que el BPM en una organización permite optimizar el gobierno y la dirección mediante la mejora del rendimiento operativo.

Inubit Release 7.0 with cluster functionality

Posted by | Bosch Inubit Suite News | No Comments
  • High scalability and failure resistance thanks to cluster functionality
  • Integrated process control through expanded BPM approach

Berlin, 12/02/2013 –

Bosch Software Innovations is rolling out a new version of its inubit business process management (BPM) solution. In addition to numerous improvements with regard to functionality and performance, the main new feature of inubit 7.0 is its cluster functionality. Consequently, companies needing to guarantee high failure resistance for their customers and service partners and dealing with sensitive processes and process data that have to be available at all times will find Release 7.0 particularly useful. These requirements are an essential feature of service level agreements (SLAs) and of new business models such as cloud solutions and software as a service (SaaS).

inubit Release 7.0’s cluster functionality makes this possible: the software can run on a network of several computers while appearing as a single entity to the outside. If one computer (or “cluster node”) fails, the process continues on another node without loss of data or downtime. Moreover, individual cluster nodes can be added or removed flexibly at any time, significantly improving performance.

Preparing and automating decision-making based on rules

Companies requiring fast, simple, and reliable interplay between rules and processes will also benefit from inubit Release 7.0. Bosch Software Innovations combines inubit with Visual Rules, the proven and reliable business rules management (BRM) software for preparing and automating decision-making based on rules. Its enhanced integration means you can directly access rules that have already been provided within business processes or technical workflows. This expanded BPM approach allows integrated process control and the seamless interaction of processes, rules, data, and applications.

inubit Release 7.0 is part of the latest version of the Bosch Software Innovations Suite, which will be available from February 2014. The Software Suite is a platform for fast and efficient connection of different elements of an ecosystem (consisting of devices, end customers, companies, and partners). It enables users to actively integrate devices, sensors, and other ‘things’ into business processes and provides new opportunities for optimizing existing business models and developing new ones.
