Processes coordinate work through an organization to create products and services. As organizations automate their processes they produce a unique footprint of that organization in their systems. The investment in these systems, whether built internally or purchased, can be leveraged using Business Process Management (BPM) by transitioning silos of disparate resources and applications to an integrated and seamless enterprise of processes. BPM designs, controls and executes those processes, making companies leaner, faster and more competitive. Process Oriented Architecture (POA) supercharges BPM by increasing efficiency, re-usability and cost savings. This paper discusses the use of POA to regain control, and to leverage internal systems while boosting efficiencies and driving down costs.
