Business Process Reengineering
Business process reengineering (BPR) is one of the more popular methodologies used to redesign existing applications. A more formal definition of BPR is “a requirement to study fundamental business processes, independent of organization units and information systems support, to determine if the underlying business processes can be significantly streamlined and improved.”32 BPR is not just rebuilding the existing applications for the sake of applying new technology to older systems, but also an event that allows for the application of new procedures designed around the OO paradigm. Remember, it is the OO paradigm that focuses on the essential components that were outlined in Chapter 9. The essential components first require the establishment of the core business requirements and then the mapping of the functionality of the organization or business unit to these components.
