OMG's BPM/SOA Community of Practice announces the winners of their BPM/SOA case study contest

This week, OMG's BPM/SOA Community of Practice, in partnership with SearchSOA.com, eBizQ and others, announced the winners of the "Business Agility and Process Optimization Enabled by Business Process Management (BPM) and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Case Study Competition". The competition was held in order to increase the visibility and understanding of BPM and SOA among organizations considering BPM or SOA based initiatives. The contest highlights success stories, lessons learned, and insights into effective implementation.

The winner was Van Ameyde International, a company specializing in claims and risk management and serving international insurance companies, and others. The company optimized their claims handling process with agile methods and model driven development. Van Ameyde's European Claims Handling Optimization (ECHO) team delivered a system that produced a 30% reduction in claims resolution times -- while at the same time providing customization that allowed for the resolution of claims in 16 different countries, each of which have their own separate claims handling regulations.

The runner up winner was AmerisourceBerger Corporation, a large pharmaceutical services company. Their BPM project focused on key performance indicators (KPIs) within the supply chain. Focus on KPIs and on improving core business processes enabled the company to save an estimated $40 million per year using BPM techniques.
