WfMC Announces Awards for Excellence in Business Transformation

WfMC Awards

August 10, 2018, Lighthouse Point FL; The Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) announces the annual Awards for Excellence in Business Transformation through the consolidation of several long-running WfMC awards programs. The merger is in keeping with the rapid progress of associated supporting technologies in this business arena.

This consolidation includes the existing major categories of Business Process Management (BPM) and Adaptive Case Management / Knowledge Work (ACM) and creates a new program for Personality of the Year.

Business Transformation Personality Awards of the Year is a new category, recognizing individual excellence and expanding on the existing Marvin L. Manheim Award for Significant Contributions in the Field of Workflow.

Business Transformation (BT) aligns people, organizational processes and technology initiatives of a company with its business strategy and vision with the aim of achieving significant competitive advantages. Winners of WfMC’s BPM and ACM Awards demonstrate these principles.

Increasingly, companies are turning to the overall concept of business transformation and adopting it as an integral part of management in line with integrated offerings and BT suites from technology providers.

The BT Awards program invites entries about successful customer case studies. These awards are designed to highlight and showcase the best examples of technology and business practice to support business transformation.

There are three major categories:

  1. Adaptive Case Management / Knowledge Work
  2. Business Process Management / Workflow
  3. BT Personality of the Year

Deadline for abstracts and early-bird entries is September 28. The award winners will be announced at a live online ceremony on December 4th, 2018.

The WfMC, founded in August 1993, is a non-profit, international organization of workflow vendors, users, analysts and university/research groups. The Coalition's mission is to promote and develop the use of BPM and workflow through the establishment of standards for software terminology, interoperability and connectivity between workflow products. Comprising over 300 members worldwide, the Coalition is the only standards body for this specific business process software market.
