IBM Smarter Process Expands to Transform Business Operations
“BPM in some form has been a significant feature of the previous two IMPACT events, and this year its
position was elevated even further – although IBM is now using a different term to describe it… Partly the shift
to ‘Smarter Process’ is a result of IBM being a victim of its own success regarding its use of the term BPM.”
Neil Ward-Dutton
Moving IBM's $100 Billion Needle with Smarter Process
“Big Data, cloud, social and mobile is driving change in the Smarter Process portfolio. In particular it
means that process efficiency is no longer enough to guarantee success – you need processes that
are effective also.”
James Taylor

the customer in the age of mobile, social, cloud, and big data… Smarter Process is an interesting
