BPM AND TESTING AUTOMATION - Why Organisations Need Both

  • Are Testing lead times holding you back from getting Agility from your BPM system?
  • Is the rush to Production increasing risk and fix time because of inadequate Testing?
  • Are you stymied because you can’t see where the problem is?
  • Is BPM testing costing you money instead of delivering more savings?
  • Why is your Process automated but your Testing isn’t?

The promise of BPM to bring agility to business is getting broken along the way. Constant transformation brings with it escalating testing requirements.

  • Not only for the many iterations to put a business process in place but also to keep changing it for continuous improvement. 
  • Not only for assuring that the BPM platform has been implemented in line with business requirements, but also for assuring changes in underlying integrated systems.

This need to deliver BPM solutions that are responsive to change comes against a global economic backdrop that neccesitates BPM projects are delivered within tight financial constraints and that are delivering benefit to the bottom line as qucikly as possible.
