SETLabs and Infosys at BPM 2009 Conference

BPM 2009 is the foremost academic conference on BPM today. Most of the participants and presenters in the conference were from Universities. There was little presence of product vendors like BizAgi, Signavio. Most of the key notes were done by Gurus of business process management like Prof Scheer, John Hoogland. Among the academics there was a presence of few participants from Research labs of organizations like IBM Research Labs and SETLabs of Infosys.
The participation from Infosys included a Panel discussion on “Why aren’t BPM approaches taking Center-Stage for managing Regulatory Compliance?” The Panel discussion was moderated by Jude Fernandez from SETLabs and Keerthana Mainkar from Infosys was one of the panel members. Keerthana heads the Enterprise Risk management Services at Infosys. The panel discussion was well received by audience.
Krishnendu Kunti, Ujval Mysore and Apeksha from SETLabs, Infosys submitted a paper “Designing Generic Business Processes based on SOA: An Approach and a Use Case” in 5th International Workshop on Business Process Design (BPD’09). The paper was presented by me in absence of authors. The paper was well received as the idea was validated and supported by in-production case study. The workshop was chaired by Selma Limam Mansar and Michael Roseman. The key note was presented by Rob Davis of IDS Scheer.
The third presentation from SETLabs, Infosys was done by me in form of a demo presentation of BizTraM tool. The tool is capable of monitoring processes in legacy systems near real time in non-intrusive manner. The demo was to be supported with posters and preceded by 1 minute elevator pitch to attract audience.  There were 15 demos happening in parallel and each presenter had to present 4 times. I ended up presenting 5 times, with pleasure though. Many people who had shown interest in area of process mining and monitoring area attended the demo.
The overall participation of SETLabs in the conference should provide scope of more university collaboration in area of BPM research. Looking forward to attend more events like this future.
