One shared repository

If someone asked you where the latest version of a process or rule is documented, would you know how to answer? Before starting to leverage IBM Blueworks Live, most of our customers were spending too much time searching for their processes or rules only to find them forgotten on a shelf or on a shared drive or in someone's inbox or, even worse, in someone's head. The nervous system of your organization is made up of its processes and rules and with the speed at which both your business and your workforce are changing, you can't afford not knowing where they are documented any longer. Stop searching and start modeling and moving your business forward with a 30-day free trial of IBM Blueworks Live!

Institutionalized innovation

How many people do you usually involve in finding out opportunities for and rolling out change? 5, 10, 20? How about tapping into the knowhow of everyone in your organization? IBM Blueworks Live believes that each member of your organization is a subject matter expert in the right context. Invite your team to your IBM Blueworks Live account and start leveraging this collective expertise in an environment built from the ground up with broad and deep participation in mind.

Business-led change

Are you in the dark as to how strategic initiatives are getting rolled out through changes to business processes or business rules? Do you still rely on the right email surfacing in the right inbox at the right time for carrying out key decisions impacting the direction of your organization? With the simplicity of building a bulleted list and the accessibility of a browser based interface, IBM Blueworks Live puts the power to implement change in the hands of those responsible for delivering the end results.


Blueworks Live is your one stop shop for everything BPM related.

Discover, document...

Over 300,000 business assets have found a home in IBM Blueworks Live and the ability to quickly find opportunities for, document and communicate change on a continuous basis has won our customers many excellence awards. The first step in any improvement effort is getting a clear understanding of where you are today. IBM Blueworks Live takes the discovery and modeling experience with which you are familiar from countless brainstorming hours in front of board room whiteboards or flipcharts and moves it into a collaborative, browser based environment. With nothing to install and very little training you can put your process modeling exercise into a social, fun and cloud gear.

...and automate...

At Blueworks Live we believe that if you're involved in a value-add activity for your organization you're part of a process. Whether you call it a task or a process, it is work and it can be improved. So before you press "Send" on that email to delegate a bunch of tasks as part of hiring a new employee or to ask your management chain for travel approval, think about the amount of time you are willing to spend chasing down people to inquire as to the status of the work. If you'd like to minimize the "chasing" and rather focus on adding value, then the automation features of Blueworks Live are right for you!

At Blueworks Live we also believe that BPM is better with friends. Our customers choose sharing and improving over reinventing best practices. They find and leverage the experts from across the organization, regardless of role or department. Adding a new member to your Blueworks Live account is as easy as inviting them to join and it is through this consolidation of all of your knowledge in one place that you put yourself in the best position to improve your operations at the same pace and scale as your marketplace.
