BPA, BPM and SOA
 
BPA - Business Process Automation
BPM - Business Process Management
SOA - Service-Oriented Architecture
 
BPA vs BPM:
Quote:
...it can be seen that both perspectives are at least complementary to some extent. Process improvement methodologies such as Lean manufacturing and Six Sigma appear to align well with the BPA view of the world, as they constantly look for incremental opportunities to make processes more efficient and reduce defects, however these methodologies can also be used downstream of a BPM deployment.

 
The role of SOA in respect of BPA:
Quote:
...service-oriented architectures are an umbrella term for a move in IT systems towards providing greater access and exchange of functionality between systems. The idea is that both previous and future IT systems will be re-engineered to provide standard interfaces, thus allowing themselves to be linked more easily and flexibly. SOA could thus be viewed as an enabler of automation between disparate systems,
