Software Development Strategy Your assigned reading from Chapter 19 concentrates on how to create an automated BPM solution. An automated BPM solution is represented by business rules and process elements. This solution integrates internal IT systems and collaborates with external entities as directed by the business rules. When a solution calls for software development, a company can follow either a linear Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), commonly called the waterfall, or a more iterative approach, such as Rapid Application Development (RAD). To prepare, read Chapter 19 in the course text, as assigned in this week’s Learning Resources. Post by Day 3 an analysis of the diverse aspects of BPM software development. You may focus on the choice of development life cycle (e.g., SDLC, RAD), the BPM system structure (e.g., three-tier), or quality assurance. Pick one strategy and explain its strengths and weaknesses. Respond by Day 7 to two or more of your colleagues’ postings in one or more of the following ways: Ask a probing question. Share an insight from having read your colleague’s posting. Offer and support an opinion. Validate an idea with your own experience. Make a suggestion. Expand on your colleague’s posting. Return to this Discussion in a few days to read the responses to your initial posting. Note what you have learned and/or any insights you have gained as a result of the comments your colleagues made.
