Track on Business Process Management (BPM) – IS – Digital Transformation

Sea Museum

Event Description

BPM (Business Process Management) is a management discipline that promotes continuous improvement of processes supported by information technology. The Chilean Track on Business Process Management (BPM), Information Systems (IS) and Digital Transformation (DT) is the national forum for an internacional audience in the field of Process Engineering, Information Systems and Digital Trasnformation, that provides an environment where researchers, scholars and practitioners share ideas and create knowledge through discussion of their research and joint cooperation
One of the goals of the Track is to address the gap of theoretical and practical BPM, so this year it aims to increase industry participation in BPM, SOA (Service Oriented Architectures), IS and DG. Therefore, we call upon the community to submit research and/or application, describing results of theoretical and/or empirical projects, to describe the state of the practice and its eventual gap with the state of the art. We would like a greater collaboration between academia and industry to identify, as the final product of the track, common goals and barriers to collaboration, presenting an agenda to continue to gradually increase the academia-industry collaboration
