In a dynamic world organizations must constantly optimize, update, and monitor the execution of their processes to stay competitive and efficient. These processes are developed on the basis of organizational targets and strategic goals, but of course the underlying IT landscape is also of influence on process design, development, implementation, and execution. In this course business and IT come together and will the concepts of business process management, supporting technologies, and their relationships be highlighted.
