  • Blog Post: "Concept Typedefs", the Holy Grail of BPM and Closing the Gap Between Business and IT

    A typedef is a keyword in both C and C++ used to introduce new names for existing types. A simple typedef declaration lets you define your own names that can be used in place of type specifiers such as int, float, and double. Surprisingly, some people have started applying typedefs to well-understood...
  • Blog Post: If you can do something it doesn't mean that you should...

    I'm not really doing anything BPEL related these days but a post by Jesper Joergensen caught my eye. Since I'm not focused on BPEL I haven't kept up with some of the developments in the BPM-related blogosphere.

    What a depressing article . I had a few concerns with this article - here are a few: The conclusion that IT should drive BPM couldn’t be more wrong - the "B" stands for "Business", not IT.
