STAMFORD, Conn. -- November 27, 2012

Gartner, Inc. is accepting nominations for the Gartner Business Process
Management (BPM) Excellence Awards. Nominations will be accepted through
December 14, 2012 via downloadable entry form from any end-user organization
that has implemented a successful BPM program or project with resulting
business impact.

Through this awards program, Gartner spotlights excellence among organizations
that take a BPM-centric approach to improving their business performance and
have seen exceptional results from doing so. Entries will be reviewed by a
team from the Gartner analyst community who will evaluate and rate each entry
based on how clearly the entrant demonstrates excellence in their BPM project.

Awards will be given in the following four categories:

  *Best Business Outcome Driven by BPM - This award will go to the
    organization who can clearly demonstrate (and quantify) how a particular
    BPM project has positively impacted a key business outcome.
  *Best BPM Organization - This award will go to the organization that has
    best demonstrated how to (reorganize itself to) better support BPM and
    process centricity, including evidence of key BPM roles, presence of a
    BPCC, effective governance and process ownership, a cross-functional BPM
    focus and a strong collaboration with the business who understand BPM and
    embrace it as the way they do business.
  *Most Effective Use of BPM Technology - This award will go to the
    organization that shows the best example of how they have leveraged BPM
    technology to solve a particular business problem, for example, agility
    and use of model-driven BPMS, BRMS, iBPMS/IBO, case management or
    automated business process discovery (ABPD).
  *Best BPM Initiative (Global Award) – This award will go to an organization
    that has already won one of the previous three categories regionally. The
    nine regional winners from those three categories will be judged on how
    their BPM Program has solved (one or several) particular business
    challenges and delivered compelling business. Evidence of the BPM
    objectives, vision, roles, governance, skills, clear quantitative results
    and effective use of technology are required.

Winners in the first three categories will be selected at the U.S., U.K. and
Australian Gartner BPM Summits. Each regional winner may subsequently be asked
to present their BPM case studies and/or participate in a user roundtable
to/with the conference participants at their regional Gartner Business Process
Management Summit:

  *March 13-14, 2013, at the Park Plaza Westminster, London, U.K.
