Business Process Management (BPM) refers to activities performed by businesses to optimize and adapt their processes. These tools can also monitor the execution of the business processes, providing managers of an organization with the means to analyze their performance and make changes to the original processes in real-time. Using a BPMS the modified process can then be merged into the current business process atmosphere.
Software piracy, whether accidental or malicious, is a problem for software vendors as these activities can directly affect the bottom line. Organizations that use software are affected as well. Along with rising software prices, they can face stiff fines and other costs for noncompliance with software licenses. This can come as a result of an audit that software vendors are more inclined to initiate in a lackluster economy. This white paper will discuss actions to take before, during and after an audit. As well as outline the best ways for the enterprise to remain compliant with software licenses.

Business Intelligence (BI) has become a mandatory part of every enterprise’s decision-making fabric. Unfortunately in many cases, with this rise in popularity, came a significant and disturbing complexity. Many BI environments began to have a myriad of moving parts: data warehouses and data marts deployed on multiple platforms and technologies – each requiring significant effort to ensure performance and support for the various needs and skill sets of the business resources using the environment. These convoluted systems became hard to manage or enhance with new requirements. To remain viable and sustainable, they must be simplified.
Fortunately today, we have the ability to build simpler BI technical environments that still support the necessary business requirements but without the ensuing management complexity. This paper covers what is needed to simplify BI environments and the technologies that support this simplification.
