The Disturbed Buddha

Simple Observations of a Self-proclaimed Novice

Learning to Go with the ‘Flow…

After a slumber of almost five long years, I am finally getting around to resurrecting this blog, and with this resurrection comes a repurposing of sorts.

During this hiatus, I embarked upon a new career, that of a software product manager.  I manage an enterprise-level, business process management software solution called CoreIntegrator® Workflow for a company called Computer Support Solutions, Inc.  The learning process has been a new and exciting one for me, and I am eager to share my experiences, insights, and questions with whomever cares to hear them.

So, first I should offer a little information about CoreIntegrator® Workflow, because I am sure that I will be talking about it from time to time…. 

Earlier versions of CoreIntegrator® Workflow date as far back as 1998.  Previous versions were known as “GPx” and simply “CoreIntegrator”.  Whereas these versions centered in purpose around automating specific Accounts Payable processes, CoreIntegrator® Workflow breaks down these narrow walls, allowing you to automate, simplify, and expedite near any business process that you can think of:

  • Accounts Payable
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Employee Onboarding & Offboarding
  • Vacation Requests
  • Grant Proposal
  • Claims Review
  • Corporate Governance
  • Recruiting
  • Auditing
  • Sales Lifecycle
  • Help Desk
  • Software Lifecycle
  • Change Management
  • and much, much more!

While I am sure that I will no doubt plug CoreIntegrator® Workflow from time to time, that is not the purpose of this blog.  It will stay committed to offering quality information on a variety subjects, including software development, product management, and business process management (BPM)/workflow, with a smattering of insights on specific topics such as Microsoft Dynamics GP (one of my company’s fortes) and Microsoft SharePoint. 

Now to explain the title of this article, “Learning to Go with the ‘Flow”….  With the publication of this post, I will be official renaming this blog from The Disturbed Buddha to Going with the Flow.  To any student of philosophy, these two titles are in harmony with one another, and the new title better represents the inclusion of the new topic of workflow/business process management (BPM) into the lineup.
