Guest blog by Michael Green, Offering Lead - Advanced Case Management
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.
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.
We hope that you had as good of a time at IOD as our team did. There was so much to get excited about, including the winners of our Innovation Awards!
Business Value Award: Novartis International AG
Novartis deployed IBM’s Information Lifecycle Governance and Management solutions, including value-based Retention and Records Management, eDiscovery and Defensible Disposal. The company has established a framework to modernize and refresh their information taxonomy, the laws that dictate retention, and data privacy and protection requirements globally. They maintain centralized retention control with localized responsibility synchronizing activities of 1,800 records coordinators. Novartis has significantly reduced litigation and compliance risk with effective disposition of content, accurate and actionable retention schedules and eDiscovery processes consistently applied across the organization.
Best Business Transformation Solution: Tejon Ranch Company
Tejon Ranch installed IBM ECM applications to streamline content-centric processes across different functions, drive more successful case outcomes, and automate its records management function. The business projects a risk reduction and a savings of more than $4 million dollars in core operations over the next three years through reduced workload, travel, paper and shipping costs. Tejon has developed enterprise policies for the management of records, classification, retention and disposition and hold management using IBM Information Lifecycle Governance solutions.
Best Overall Cross IBM Solution: U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission
NRC uses IBM products for automated scanning, content assessment, classification, content collection and storage of incoming documents resulting in quick assessment of content relevance and immediate availability. NRC switched from a manual identification and collection process to an automated one using Information Lifecycle Governance solutions including Smart Archive and eDiscovery. The NRC is now able to respond to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests in days vs. weeks or months.
Award for Wells Fargo: Best BAO Strategy and Execution Award
Wells Fargo originates more than $100 billion in residential loans per quarter. To support this business, the company images 80-160 documents per second. Using IBM software, Wells Fargo has initiated a company-wide imaging product to improve customer lending. Wells Fargo is making the loan process more efficient and effective through the use of images, data and better document management.

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.
I’d like to show you how users can leverage IBM ECM today through
collaboration applications like MS SharePoint and how users can leverage MS
desktop productivity and email tools to directly access ECM services.
Attend a live product demonstration of the latest release of Content Collector
for MS SharePoint (formerly known as FileNet Connector for MS SharePoint) and
MS Office direct integration with IBM FileNet Content Manager.
• Stay in the familiar MS Office
environment, while leveraging IBM FileNet Content Manager’s ECM capabilities to
help provide full lifecycle and compliance management.
• Access IBM ECM services directly
through the MS Office 2007 suite of products, providing access to most relevant
ECM features to help user get the daily work done without spending time
learning yet another new application.

Hello, my name is Juliette Paquin – Julie for short. I will be taking over for my colleague, Randy Wilcox in contributing to this blog from the ECM Lab Services point of view. Lucky for us, Randy will continue to share his expertise within the community, but will be changing the focus of his blog to cover Text Analytics and ECM.
A little bit about myself, I have over 24 years of experience in IT application development and consulting, with more than half of my career spent working within ECM. Since joining IBM in 1997, I’ve held a number of roles across 2 divisions, working first in Global Business Services and now in Software Group Lab Services. I’ve helped customers across many industries to define ECM solutions to fit their needs, and I’ve helped IBMers define repeatable offerings to assist customers in implementing ECM software.
Content management solutions are so much more than just the technology. Don’t get me wrong, we could do nothing without the underlying ECM platform. I know from many years of experience, however, that it takes so much more to be successful. I intend to discuss some of the supporting activities for ECM deployment and some of the considerations for how to complete the implementation.
In chatting with Randy, I know that he did not get a chance to complete his multi-part series on ECM Shared Services. I intend to work with Randy to get that series completed so that none of you are left hanging (I know you’ve been on the edge of your seats!). Look for Part 3 to be available shortly.

Budgets are shrinking, and workloads are increasing. For government agencies, the pressure is on to do more work with fewer resources—and to do it faster than ever before. And yet, these agencies face a variety of challenges that keep them from improving efficiency and reducing costs. Many departments are in silos, and cross-communication is limited. Business processes are redundant and inefficient, and compliance with regulations sometimes slows things down even more.
Plus, one of the many challenges for governments is the fact that in-person collaboration—a valuable part of everyday workplace—is causing problems too. With employees making critical business decisions around the proverbial “water cooler,” valuable knowledge can get lost, and efficiency is reduced dramatically.
It’s no wonder government workers and leaders often find it a challenge to improve the efficacy of their processes. Just think about the staggering complexity of managing content across the enterprise:
Multiple Content Creators: Employees, public officials, policy analysts, and citizens are all generating information at an ever-increasing rate.
Varieties of Content Types: Whether it’s social media, documents, images, web forms, video, email, mobile apps, business applications, or structured data, there are unlimited types of content being created every day.
Disparate Storage Locations: Vital documents get saved in file cabinets, servers, or email archives. Important data and files are spread across web servers, wikis, databases, or multiple storage devices.
Numerous Consumers: The audiences consuming content are also quite diverse—employees, managers, supervisors, citizens and auditors all need access to a wide variety of information.
Most public sector agencies have similar goals, but there are many different ways to achieve them. But regardless of the form, management is key—you need to align the right people, processes and policies in order to make every business procedure works together seamlessly.
Join IBM Content 2014 to discover how enterprise content management ECM solutions can improve efficiency and effectiveness of public sector organizations when it comes to managing content, case files and tasks. Find out how to empower government workers to do more work in a shorter period of time in order to reduce costs, regain revenue, and improve citizen satisfaction.
