Conference Theme

Business Engineering (or Business Process Reengineering) has become the
cornerstone of modern strategic planning. This represents a fundamental shift
in the organization. management, and conduct of business, as basic as the
adoption of the industrial system in the later part of the 1800s.

Information technology is the driver and enabler of this revolution, since it is
the communication medium provided by computer automation that has unmade and
remade our concept of business, of work, and ultimately, of ourselves.

We have entered the second cycle of business engineering: the first cycle
spiraled into our awareness with Hammer and Champy's manifesto for a new
corporate mindset. Now, we are confronted with the mismatch between our new
forms of business planning and our existing information technology as we move
forward seeking to manage the process-centered enterprise.

The Second Cycle is the theme for the 1996 Tools and Methods for Business
Engineering. Business process reengineering has become a pervasive, worldwide
discipline, with mounting evidence of the advantages of a comprehensive
application of its principles, as well as the difficulties inherent in
reapplying conventional information technology to its ends. A new wave of
software is being developed and fielded to counter those difficulties, the first
generation designed to support the engineered organization.

Any and all software used in today's business will be reworked to support
process, which is now the central metaphor for business organization and
control. All functions of the organization Q finance, manufacturing,
engineering, software development, sales and marketing, customer support, and
management Q all these require process-oriented information systems.

The product areas where process engineering has been a tradition for years Q
workflow and business process reengineering tools Q are now only the first
beachhead in the second cycle invasion of products. Document management,
application frameworks, database management systems, manufacturing systems, CASE
tools, sales automation tools, project management systems, and even personal
information managers are now incoporating process as a primary aspect.

With these dizzying changes, and the rapid rate of product introductions,
business professionals involved in IT or BPR in their firms must stay aware of
trends, players, and recent innovations. TMBE '96 will provide the opportunity
to gain understanding of these fundamental technological advances, and to
consider methods and techniques of succeeding in their introduction into today's

TMBE '96 will complement on-the-ground product demonstration and exhibits with
high level market and technology trend analysis from international experts, as
well as providing a well-orchestrated environment for interchange and

Conference Format

The conference builds on the lead of the Tools and Methods for Business
Engineering 1995 conference; however, due to the experience and success of the
first conference, we have extended and enhanced the conference format.

The program committee will include recognized authorities in their area of
concentration, and all sessions will be led by program committee members. The
theme of the conference will be highlighted in each of the program tracks,
starting with an initial session to set the context for the track, and
thereafter, by a combination of presentations, vendor panels, and case studies.

Demonstrations of business engineering products will be interleaved with the
conference program, affording attendees an opportunity to see world-class
offerings from software vendors and consulting firms.
