当物联网遇到业务过程管理：现状和机遇报 告 人：Michael Sheng（麦考瑞大学教授）
Since mid 1990s, the Business Process Management (BPM) has emerged as an important discipline with significant advances in models, standards, tools and technologies. Over the past two decades, the Internet of Things (IoT) has increasingly become pervasive and is widely regarded as an important technology to improve productivity, operational effectiveness, decision making, and to identify new business models for social and economic opportunities. The incorporation of IoT into BPM would allow the development of business processes with higher levels of responsiveness, efficiency, and flexibility. Although the combination of IoT and BPM creates substantial potentials, it also presents many significant challenges. In this presentation, I will review the current state on IoT and BPM, discuss the open challenges, and report some of our recent research activities.
