Business Process Management (short: BPM) is a holistic concept that enables describing as well as controlling and optimizing business processes. Special about this method is that not only technical requests but also strategic and organizational process elements (e.g. persons) can be considered. To ensure optimal control regarding the business process there are also used performance indicators that can be for example part of the BSC-Model (Balanced Scorecard).

Digital business processes can be described by means of Aris, BPMN or UML, among others.

The automation of digital processes is RPA.
