Through continued modernisation BPM platforms goes beyond traditional process automation and optimisation use cases to play a key role in digital transformation in organisations of all sizes. Modern BPM applications requirements include advanced end user interfaces (UIs), access to big volumes of business data and real time updates of those processes, UIs and data. AI will be the next major wave of innovation in BPM.
