WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study Business Process Management (BPM), Cloud, Mobile, and Patterns: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2014 to 2020. According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the WinterGreen Research team that prepared the study, "Cloud computing, mobile computing, and smart devices represent the major forces impacting business process management (BPM) markets. IBM and others are leveraging patterns to gain competitive advantage in enterprise BPM markets. Managers use large BPM systems and small and mid-size business use the BPM cloud." Ms Eustis continued, “BPM is evolving cloud SaaS for business applications to accomplish work. The opportunity to implement apps that make automated process more responsive to the needs of customers, partners, suppliers, and distributors, people use business process management (BPM) as the need for automation tools to help workers is upon all of us.” Consideration of Business Process Management (BPM) Market Forecasts indicates that markets at $3.4 billion will reach $10 billion by 2020. Growth comes as automation of process adapts more efficiently to collaboration between people and provides interactive process based on exception management.
Their last research (2012-2018) indicated that markets at $2,6 billion will reach $7 billion by 2018.
The figures indicates that BPM Market is growing up, I agree with this sentence, but the research includes some companies that they are not a pure BPM vendor and I am very surprised that they include Microsoft, Adobe and EMC as market leaders, that it is wrong. I recommend to visit my list of BPM vendors in World BPM Magazine, so it is possible to understand what kind of technology has any vendor.
