At the TechEd in Amsterdam it was great to meet Marilyn Pratt and Alan Rickayzen at the BPX community area. With their encouragement, I recently submitted an article to the BPX community on how to structure hard-to-automate business processes (URL above). It would be very interesting to hear other people’s thoughts on the ideas presented. For example, is the methodology a proper application of object orientated design ? Indeed, is it a methodology at all, or just the happy outcome of a standard package implementation. Has this approach been used before – is the assertion true that it is any way “novel”? The article was written for the BPX community, because I believe it demonstrates an important solution that could not be provided from a purely business or technical perspective – or this too arrogant, or not necessarily an question exclusive to BPX? Lastly, and this is my hope, should SAP make provision in their modelling tools or applications to extend these ideas?
