Business performance management (BPM) has emerged as a critical discipline to enable enterprise to manage their business solutions in an on demand fashion. BPM applications promote an adaptive means by emphasizing the ability to monitor and control both business processes and IT events. However, most BPM processes and architectures are usually linear and rigid; and once done, will be very hard to change. Hence, it does not help enterprise to create adaptive monitoring and control applications for business solutions. There is an urgent need of adaptive BPM framework to be used as a platform of developing BPM applications. This paper presents a policy based BPM framework to help enterprise to achieve on demand monitoring and control framework for business solutions.
