BPM Think Tank 2008

In June of 2005, the Business Process Management Initiative (BPMI.org) and the Object Management Group (OMG) announced the merger of their Business Process Management (BPM) activities to provide thought leadership and industry standards for this vital and growing industry. The combined group has named itself the Business Modeling & Integration (BMI) Domain Task Force (DTF).

For more information about the BMI DTFs activities, please visit BMI Working Group Page.

Standards Work in Progress

The BMIs combined activities continue BPMIs and OMGs groundbreaking work and focus on all aspects of Business Process Management. BPMIs widely used standard for business modeling, Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN), and the Business Motivation Model (BMM) contributed by the Business Rules Group, have been adopted as official OMG specifications.

The BPMN final adopted specification is available for download, while the draft adopted BMM specification is downloadable. Both specifications are in the finalization phase. The specifications are available for download from OMG's specification catalog, http://www.omg.org/technology/documents/spec_catalog.htm. Separately, a new standard defining the Semantics of Business Vocabulary and Business Rules (SBVR) has been adopted. The Final Adopted Specification may be downloaded from OMGs Domain Specifications Catalog web page.

Anyone interested in participating in the BMIs standards development efforts is invited to attend an OMG Technical Meeting; check here for the dates and locations of upcoming meetings. Non-members may apply for a guest registration. For more information on attending the technical meeting, visit http://www.omg.org/meeting-info.htm.
