Abstract

This paper reviews a set of some important issues related to process management, process modelling, Business Process Reengineering (BRP), and information management and visualisation. It is a new philosophy based on a concurrent approach to systems analysis, modelling and design. Furthermore, a few of the important information-based challenges and opportunities for the incoming information society are briefly discussed.
