BriefingsDirect Analysts Discuss Solutions for Bringing Human Interactions into Business Process Workflows Welcome to the latest BriefingsDirect Analyst Insights Edition, Vol. 37, a periodic discussion and dissection of software, services, SOA and compute cloud-related news and events with a panel of IT analysts. In this episode, recorded Feb. 13, 2009, our guests examine the essential topic of bringing human activity into alignment with IT supported business processes. We revisit the topic of BPEL4People, an OASIS specification. The need to automate and extend complex processes is obvious. What's less obvious, is the need to join the physical world of people, their habits, needs, and perceptions with the artificial world of service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process modeling (BPM). This will become all the more important, as cloud-based services become more common. Please join noted IT industry analysts and experts Michael Rowley, director of technology and strategy at Active Endpoints; Jim Kobielus, senior analyst at Forrester Research; and JP Morgenthal, independent analyst and IT consultant. Our discussion is hosted and moderated by BriefingDirect's Dana Gardner. Read a full transcript of the podcast: http://briefingsdirect.blogspot.com/2009/03/briefingsdirect-analysts-discuss.html.
