IBM BPM Business Process Life Cycle:

            The Business Process Life Cycle rely on six main aspects. This is a linked (or) a chained process in which these six steps involve in the Life cycle process of Business Process Management. The six steps are listed as follows:
  1. Process Identification
  2. Process Discovery
  3. Process Analysis
  4. Process Re-Design
  5. Process Implementation
  6. Process Monitoring & Controlling
The Life Cycle of Business Process Management can be explained in a better way by using pictorial representation as follows:

     1)      Process Identification


2) Process Discovery

This is the second step of Business Process Life Cycle. The Process is first identified and then sent for discovery. So this step can be called as Process Discovery. Here the architecture of the Process is discovered.

Process discovery and design is the modeling, simulation, and adjustment of core business processes for both documentation and execution. It facilitates the collaboration of the process strategy with your business goals.

     3)      Process Analysis

This is the third step of Business Process Life Cycle. Here the discovered process is sent for analysis. The Discovered process is analyzed here. This step is called as Process Analysis.

Process analysis empowers organizations to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their business processes. This includes a broad range of capabilities, business intelligence( BI), predictive analytics and performance management, through which businesses can apply to their data to continuously monitor, measure, manage and improve the decisions that drive their operations. Process analysis is beyond simply analyzing process data. For continuous process improvement, this includes the embedding of analytical insights into the process itself.

4)      Process Re-Design

        5)      Process Implementation:

      6)      Process Monitoring & Controlling:
