Master critical factors of success
Business Process Automation (BPA) is more important than ever today and there is more in focus than pure cost savings. For many organizations the critical success factor is mastering business processes in order to command a leading position in global competition. The decisive factor here is to consider Business Process Automation as an overall concept to systematically and sustainably integrate into the organization.

Business Process Automation for banks
Given the progressing industrialization process in the financial industry, the flexibility of IT applications is being put to a severe test. They should be analyzable, interoperable, integrated, process-variant, open and able to be mapped to any new organizational structures. These requirements arise from the need to improve the cost-income-ratio and to increase the STP (straight-through processing) rate. Thereby, the objective of financial companies is to satisfy the needs of online banking, to support the outsourcing of functional blocks, to fulfill the legal requirements and to take into account the operative risks under Basel III.
Banks can meet such challenges only through a rethink – the front office and back office of a bank, together with workplace-related IT support, must be converted into an integrated, media-consistent and process-oriented organization.
This means that banking services, in the sense of a production process, must be based on the assembly line principle. To this end, we offer our customers the flexibilization and process automation components of the Financial Business Process Factory – an adaptation of our BPA Suite specifically for the financial sector. With this technology, you can not only make your IT applications more flexible – you can also modernize such applications.
Turn your bank into a financial services factory!
Processes can be designed, simulated, monitored and analyzed. Moreover, functions for dynamic rerouting are available.
Our BPA solution provides a component with which connections can be constructed to both individual users and to third-party systems.
Through functions regarding work allocation, inbox management and workflow control, your workflow is fully supported.
In the context of business processes, our solution offers features for capturing, routing and archiving documents.
PASS gives you the opportunity to outsource your complete Business Process Management (BPM), so you can concentrate on your core business. The BPM as a service model is a service orientated solution.

We combine all BPM services, from process analysis to real time enterprise management, to integrated on-demand services:
- Automation of business processes.
- Process analysis and modeling with different specifications and scenarios.
- Process automation and process simulation using IBM Business Process Manager Standard.
