NEEDHAM, Mass. -- The Object Management Group[TM] (OMG[TM]), in partnership with BPTrends, today announced that the BPM Think Tank 2008 event will be held October 6-7, 2008 at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare in Chicago, IL, USA. For more information, visit http://www.omg.org/think-tank-pr.
This popular annual business-oriented event will once again involve attendees in interactive roundtables moderated by leading BPM experts. At BPM Think Tank 2008, experts and practitioners alike will gather to discuss the use of BPM to achieve successful business results. Our unique format combining roundtable discussions, case study presentations, a panel session, as well as BPM tools demonstrations, will allow participants to gain uncommon insight into BPM in the real world and in the process owner's office.
BPM Think Tank 2008 participants will participate in at least three unique, highly interactive BPM Roundtables over the course of two days. These roundtables are small, interactive group sessions moderated by subject matter experts who will introduce the topic and move on to the group discussion that uniquely characterizes BPM Think Tank. These BPM Roundtables have been a highly acclaimed feature of the BPM Think Tank in the past and clearly differentiate this event from others in the BPM marketplace. Presentations before and after the roundtable sessions will focus on business case studies presented by end users with real-world experience.
BPM Think Tank 2008 is especially relevant to the business-oriented BPM practitioner. This includes practitioners at all levels who are responsible for running, managing, analyzing and executing business processes, in addition to BP architects and consultants, and vendors and users of BPM tools.
