Our BPM training course positions BPM as enabler for SOA. Although SOA is not specific to BPM software, there are a number of natural synergies between BPM and SOA.
Perhaps most obvious of these is the separation of business process management as an independent function, allowing processes to be designed independently of any single application and leveraged as shared business logic.
While most of the attention focused on SOA has been largely dominated by Web services, it is important to realize that these standards are merely one of the means to an end and not the end game itself. The true value of SOA comes from the ability to orchestrate these components across executable business processes.
