Because process matters: Metastorm launches BPM awareness blog
Business process management (BPM) solutions specialist Metastorm has unveiled a new blog site, called Because Process Matters , to provide viewpoints on industry trends, and host multimedia content highlighting customer successes, partner solutions, events, and product releases.
The new Metastorm blog provides another channel for Metastorm to communicate with a rapidly growing online community of IT constituents interested in following Metastorm and related BPM and enterprise application integration (EAI) trends on a global basis. The blog adds to Metastorm’s existing social media and Web communications channels.
Metastorm hopes the new blog will foster productive community discussion and increase awareness of the effectiveness of BPM and EAI solutions in helping organizations see the business more clearly, think about how to better leverage existing assets, and do things that ultimately lower costs, reduce risk, and enhance agility.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
