    HI,

    You implement integration processes when you want to define, control, and monitor complex integration processes that extend across enterprise and application boundaries. The design and processing of integration processes is also known as cross-component Business Process Management (cross-component BPM, ccBPM).

    Thanks

    Its same. However, BPM is a vast term and not only related to XI.

    They are same ...

    But in XI, the integration process concept is linked with BPM which is very much confusing.

    Actually most of the things we do in the integration process in XI like, fork,loop, switch etc can be done without using any BPM in webMethods, TIBCO.

    May be in future SAP will come up with more appropriate conventions so that people will not be get confused what exactly is integration process and BPM.

    Hi,

    like mentioned by Prateek Business process management (BPM) is a vast term (not only used by SAP).

    In PI BPM is called ccBPM (cross-component BPM).

    You define a conrete business process in PI as an Integration Process in the Integration Repository.

    At runtime an Integration Process is executed at the Business Process Engine.
