BPM in Cloud? Really? Not anytime soon…

The closest that comes to what’s happening on the ground is “Process-Modeler-as-a-Service” [Not BPA in the cloud, again!] and “BPMS-Platform-as-a-Service” or “BPMS-platform-in-the-cloud”. And this trend is expected to continue for the next couple of years. We don’t have all the ingredients in place, and don’t expect in the next couple of years, to have any success with something like “Business-Process-as-a-Service” or “Business-Process-in-the-Cloud”, which should be a milestone for achieving BPM in cloud in true sense. An immediately acceptable outcome out of these cloud capabilities being built around BPA and BPMS platforms would be a faster proof of capability with a lower investment on silo-ed or simple processes, without the high-end expectations of turning around the business process efficiency.
