      Hi Pradeep,
      PI and Solution Manager are important components in an end-to-end business process management (BPM) implementation - which is totally different from the business process monitoring application you are speaking about.  Internally in SAP, we are referring to the business process monitoring capability of Solution Manager as BPMon so as to avoid confusing others.  Do you mind changing the acronym in your blog?  Thanks.
