Slowly but surely the small vendors are vanishing. What does this mean for management looking to invest in BPMS? Are we going to see shortlists made up entirely of IBM, Software AG, Oracle? Or is this a sign that we are beginning to see the end of BPMS in its present form and the emergence of something new that includes ACM, social networking components plus rudimentary workflow?
