Join this session to explore the growing world of Business Process Management (BPM) software solutions, how they are changing into case-management-oriented frameworks, and the differences between these systems and commercial, off-the-shelf court case management systems.  The presenters will also discuss how these systems work and their benefits and shortfalls.  The “high configurability” characteristics of these products are impacting requirements, design, project management, technical resourcing, and implementation in organizations, including use of waterfall and agile methods.  What are the foreseeable impacts of these ideas and systems on the court technology market?
