Today, Business Process Management (BPM)
software vendors are embracing low-code because it's a faster method
of software and application development. Low-code BPM solutions can
save enterprises a lot of money (with low maintenance costs) and
gives them the opportunity to customize the software to fit their
With quick and simple drag and drop functions,
low-code applications are quickly becoming the new, and incredibly
simple, method of coding. And while there are more than 100 vendors
now claiming to reside in the “low-code platform” space, not all
low-code platforms are created equally.
Application Platform - Low code - No Code
Through a combination of drag-and-drop user
interfaces (UIs), form builders, and visual process modeling, users
can leverage low-code development platforms to produce a working app
that you can download, open, and start using in hours or less.
These applications are tools to get things
done, be it on your desktop, tablet, or mobile device. Commercial
apps tend to address most of the needs of today's small to midsize
businesses (SMBs). Most, but not all.
Whether your business is a multinational
enterprise or just a five-person basement operation, there will come
a day when you encounter a deal or a process that simply can't be
addressed by off-the-shelf, third-party software. That's when you'll
face the multi-headed hydra that is the custom, in-house development
The easier you can build and deploy working
apps to complete a specific task or solve a particular problem on a
team or throughout your organization, the more efficiently you'll be
able to address any sudden requirements. In an effort to make the
app-creation process easier on the IT department and, at the same
time, more accessible to everyday business users, businesses have
begun to turn to low-code development platforms.

This emerging category of app-building tools
gives organizations of any size—from SMBs up to large
enterprises—the ability to quickly design, build, customize, and
deploy business apps with little to no coding.
Process Mining - and BPM
Process mining is essentially a set of
techniques using mathematical algorithms to analyze business
processes based on event logs. There are a lot of process mining
algorithms, toolkits, plugins available that are generally based on
what we call the “traditional” process mining methods of discovery
and conformance checking.
Process mining helps enterprise architecture
and technology innovation leaders assess operations and performance.
Process Mining techniques are not new. Professor Wil van der Aalst
and his Tue Eindhoven team have been leading the research on process
mining for the last 15 years. Solutions provided by a top 20 vendor

“The Balanced Scorecard,” by Robert Kaplan and

performance indicators (KPIs) tracking of strategic progress toward
central goals across four perspectives, including financial
measures, customer knowledge, internal processes, and

RPA Center of Excellence for Robotic Process
The more RPA processes are automated, the more
important it becomes that employees have extensive knowledge of
this. The ideal team is formed by a Business Analyst + Developers.
Further the process owners, governance, risk
management, change management and the associated procedures or
policy colleagues are involved. PMO project managers, programme
managers are involved as well. The CoE is therefore a crucial basic
step for every organization, from the moment RPA is applied to
broader initiatives in the field of artificial intelligence.
