Business Process Management (BPM):
Business Process Management is an aggregation of operations performed by people and software systems containing the information used in the process, along with the applicable business rules. Business Process Management (BPM) is a method of efficiently aligning an organization with the wants and needs of its customers. It is a holistic management approach that promotes business effectiveness and efficiency, while striving for innovation, flexibility and integration with technology. As organizations strive for attainment of their objectives, BPM attempts to continuously improve processes — the process to define, measure and improve your processes — creating a ‘process optimization’ process.
The activities that constitute business process management can be grouped into five categories:
When BPM is implemented as part of service-oriented architecture, its business and IT benefits can be substantial.

SaaS – Software as a Service:
Software-as-a-service (SaaS), and broader cloud computing marketplace, is one of the fastest growing segments of the information technology (IT) industry because it provides a more cost-effective alternative for enterprises to achieve their business objectives than traditional packaged applications.
SaaS is an application hosted on a remote server and accessed through the Internet. SaaS frees businesses from complex software and hardware management.
SaaS applications are sometimes called Web-based software, on-demand software, or hosted software. Whatever the name, SaaS applications run on an SaaS provider’s servers. The provider manages access to the application, including security, availability, and performance. SaaS is also often associated with a “pay as you go” subscription licensing model.
Security of I/T Infrastructure:
In today’s Web-based business environment, managing secure access to systems, databases and applications for employees, customers and business partners is a challenge for every IT group—in both large and small organizations.
IT Security cannot be achieved by merely implementing various security systems, tools or products. However security failures are less likely through the implementation of security policy, process, procedure and product(s). Multiple layers of defense need to be applied to design a fail-safe security system. The idea behind multi-layered defense security is to manage the security risk with multiple defensive strategies, so that if one layer of defense turns out to be inadequate, another layer of defense will, ideally, prevent a full breach.
As your technology partner, Metamor can help you implement IT security with combination of security policy, process, procedure and products.
