Google gets workflow wings with KiSSFLOW. Can they democratize BPM?

An April Fool’s joke from last year, my post on Google entering BPM with Noodle, continues to get views every day. I always wonder how many readers may be taking it seriously, it was a joke after all. Some of what I wrote was, and still is, plausible. Meanwhile, though, Google and their partners continue […]

The new role of IT – from Cost Center to Business Platform Provider

IT can, driven by APaaS, become a Business Platform Provider and facilitate Business Value, and move beyond being Cost Center.
