October 1, 2008 - IBM announced new software and services built on service-oriented architecture (SOA) to help clients redefine and improve their existing business processes.


The ability to proactively manage their business processes allows leaders to better align their businesses and make smarter decisions. This can help reduce overall business costs and make a business more responsive to changes in the global marketplace.

To help clients accelerate this process improvement and business performance using BPM, IBM is introducing “business space.” A customized and continuously updated desktop view of their business processes, business space allows clients to not just monitor business objects, but to anticipate operational risks and act upon the information. This new role-based, collaborative BPM capability is powered by WebSphere software and built using SOA.

Clients can view these metrics in a customized business space, which can highlight relevant business process status, appropriate application content, user collaboration tools, graphics and alerts - all utilizing Web 2.0 functionality. By providing a consolidated view of business process content and enabling contextual collaboration around processes in one location, business space enables clients to manage their processes more effectively, make smarter decisions and take action more quickly.
