Software engineering and business process management: Interpretatio, imitatio, aemulatio

Abstract

Given the head start that SE has over BPM it is not surprising that in certain respects SE work serves as a huge source of inspiration for BPM researchers. This is clearly visible with respect to design principles and the use of metrics to evaluate the quality of designs. In this talk, I will provide various examples of clear links between the two fields. As a cautionary tale, I will also use the example of a failed IT implementation where the reliance on metrics to explain what has happened is arguably too big.
