SCIPIO - adaptive business processes


bookExtracts from book by Richard Veryard
New ways of doing business. New ways of improving business processes. New ways of analysing IT strategy and IT requirements. These lead naturally to component- based solutions.

SCIPIO integrates business requirements with component- based development and legacy reuse. SCIPIO brings together, for the first time, the disciplines and best practices of business process modelling, workflow management and object-oriented analysis and design. It uses these to enable developers to create flexible systems from reusable components. It establishes capability freely across open distributed technology. The result is information systems capability for business users beyond the Millennium.
