Partner Network and its Process Management

Taivo Kangilaski, Igor Polyantchikov, Eduard Shevtshenko


Business processes define how the organizations operate, deliver products or services and interact with customers; how they support their corporate strategies and enable companies to react to changes more rapidly. Business process management empowers the business analysts to define, manage, analyse and optimize their processes. The current article specifies the principles to describe the processes in a Partner Network to ensure efficient information exchange. As fluent cooperation is based on processes and depends on process maturity, the maturity estimation model is proposed in this article.
