Boundaryless Information Flow: Managing the
Enabling secure, reliable, and timely access to the right information,
unlocking the information, and overcoming the boundaries within and between
organizations has become the overriding requirement for customers of
IT products and services.
Vendors are responding with their own interpretation of this requirement.
With terms like adaptive, seamless, and on–demand computing, workflow
and process management solutions are becoming more visible in product
offerings. The Open Group vision of Boundaryless Information Flow is
a vendor and technology-neutral way of describing what today’s
business IT environment needs in order to deliver.
As organizations everywhere strive to do more with less, it is important
to be aware of best practices, what others are doing, their experiences
so far, and what is coming in the near future. This conference will help
you gain valuable information from customers, vendors, and analysts to
help you better manage the flow in your organization.

or mission-focused decision-making.

effective and consistent transfer of information between process activities,

and improving efficiency.
To deal with the diverse elements of managing information flow,
an environment requires an open set of information flow services.
flow services support both applications and processes, and allow those
applications and processes to be focused on the business
or mission of the organization, as opposed to dealing with the idiosyncrasies
of the computing environment.
- Information flow services must also
support the monitoring and control of the flow and capture statistics
for process and performance improvement.
- Information flow services
should enhance productivity by making computer systems active components
of the business process and eliminating
much of the manual coordinating activity that goes on in an organization
- Information flow services must enable workers connected over a network
to collaborate and coordinate their work.
