ECM In Motion
Business content is easily produced by Microsoft based
desktop productivity tools such as MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Internally, many organizations share and
collaborate on content using MS SharePoint.
As content moves through collaboration cycles, its value to an
organization increases - both for the collaboration team and for its value to
others across the organization.

What a whirlwind! Time just flew right by during the AIIM Conference – where does it all go? I want to thank everyone who took the time to attend our roundtable sessions and come by the IBM booth – as well as the StoredIQ booth! They're our newest team members and it was great to be able to highlight the expansions to our Governance capabilities.
Thank you, again, to everyone who came out to "get captured" by our caricature artists on Wednesday night. It was so much fun and you all looked great!
Did you bring home any burning questions or just want to follow up with us? Feel free to contact me directly (email@example.com) and I am happy to connect you with our subject matter experts who were onsite during the conference.
Lost your literature? Just a friendly reminder that we post a lot of our literature electronically, which you can find here. I have also posted the printed collateral that was available during the show on our ECM Community site (if you're not already a member, join us today!) and you can download them to share with your team.
It was great to meet so many of you – I hope to see you all again soon!

IBM Case Manager (ICM) shares with IBM BPM the ability to design a case workflow and build business rules to automate certain aspects of that workflow. However, there are a number of ways that ICM differs from IBM BPM in respect to how it handles the requirements of a case vs a normal process flow.
The first is in regards to how ICM understands process flows. Unlike normal workflows, which have defined start and end point, in cases the outcome is unknown. Is the compensation claim going to be settled next week, or if the claim does last a long time, the steps needed will be different. It is because of these unknowns that ICM has adopted a flexible process mechanism based on process fragments or 'tasks'. These break the process up into discrete actions and allow the caseworker the ability to decide which task should be undertaken when. Some tasks may never undertaken for a specific case, others may be mandatory for all cases, but the deciding power is based on the decision of the caseworker.
The second involves analytics or what we call 'decision support services'. This is the ability to expand on what the worker already knows, their experience and training, by providing specific analytical tools to help them make more informed decisions. ICM includes the capability to do analysis on all other similar case files, using content analytics, to find commonalities and help in making decisions more normalised.
The third differentiator involves content. IBM BPM supports the CMIS standard for content federation. This enables it to choreograph content based processes. The difference with ICM however, is that it also enables something we call 'active content' and supports all content standards, not just CMIS. ICM works with the document metadata to understand what the document is, which case it is a part of, and then automatically move it to move to the next step in the process flow. Active content also tracks each time a document is opened, who opened it, what changes were made, and what were the next steps taken as a result of that review.

Guest blog by Michael Green, Offering Lead - Advanced Case Management
IBM BPM is the enterprise class business process engine from IBM. It is designed to choreograph process flows from multiple enterprise applications based on sophisticated business rules enabling discrete process decisions and automated process steps. Inherent in IBM BPM is the idea that a process is an end-to-end system with a known outcome. Case management, on the other hand, is by definition a process flow where the outcome is unknown. While business rules and automated steps are important to case management, case management requires the ability to pick and choose process tasks based on decisions made the by case worker. Nonetheless, there are distinct requirements in case management that demands the sort of process choreography that IBM BPM provides.
While a caseworker may be the ultimate arbiter of the decision making, he or she often requires information found in one or more disparate enterprise applications. Moreover, any changes made to a case file often require an update to those enterprise applications so that the customer or citizen’s file is accurately maintained. IBM Case Manager interfaces with IBM BPM at the design level to enable Case Manager process designers to access the power of IBM BPM process choreography to enable data exchanges. By effectively merging design environments this enables Case based workflows to extend beyond the realm of individual decision makers and leverage the power of the automated process choreography. By combining the two, the flexible task based process capabilities of IBM Case Manager with the automated business rules driven engine of IBM BPM, the full promise of the process efficiencies of Advanced Case Management can be achieved.

Guest blog by Michael Green, Offering lead - IBM Case Manager
How much easier it all would be if all software products fit into nicely differentiated boxes. Software, however, is infinitely flexible and resists being tightly categorized. Certainly that is the case when you try to differentiate IBM BPM from Case Manager. Both deal with aspects of process management; both can move information in a choreographed way around an organization; both include people and processes in their process flows and have ways do deal with exceptions processing. Is there anyway to clearly differentiate the two?
Speaking in Japan this week, Allan Takatsuka, the ICM World Wide Technical Lead, tried to articulate such a differentiator. He noted that when processes included a significant amount of content - specifically unstructured or document based content - and needed people to act on that content - then the content oriented process controls and tools in IBM Case Manager clearly differentiated that offering from IBM BPM. Allan noted that while there were other aspects of case management that one or the other product could demonstrate rival capability - software being what it is - in the area of content it was clear that IBM Case Manager was the better option.
From the point of view of IBM Case Manager I can certainly argue that there are other areas of differentiation, but Allen’s point is well taken. The ability to deal with multiple document types, to allow editing and audit control of all documents actions – who read, edited, signed – and when they did so – certainly differentiate IBM ECM products from all other offerings. The ability for documents to be understood, initiate discrete process tasks, and automatically create contextual audit trails that include the case documents with all the process steps, is a unique feature in IBM Case Manager. So while perfect worlds do not exist, focusing on content based process flows as a way to differentiate Case Manager from IBM BPM is at a minimum a good – clear – place to start.
