As companies evolve into the modern age of business process automation, oversight and management become critically important. Businesses that transform their technology design need organization tools that help with the dissemination and management of the business processes. These process management tools include service catalogs, monitoring, and status management, which provide real-time information about the processes within a company.
A service catalog is an essential business process tool for a company. This tool is similar to a phone book that provides information about the company's business processes. Business process management tools typically include a registry form of catalog, which provides names and descriptions of the available business processes in a company.
As an organization creates business automation services it will quickly need to maintain a formal directory of these services. This catalog is necessary to ensure reuse of existing business processes. Most registry catalogs are managed by the senior business process manager. This individual is typically responsible for managing new development efforts and the deconfliction of enterprise business processes.

Linux® process management tools are specifically configured to manage processes for computers that run the Linux® operating system.
Process management systems are available in many business fields. An example of this type of system is a sales process system. These process management tools are designed to manage the entire sales process and leads-generation process for a company. Sales management tools typically includes work flows, reporting, and market-trend analysis.

These products provide a graphical representation of the steps and resource impacts of work flow decisions in a company. A work flow package is an example of a process management tool that helps a company with business process re-engineering initiatives. This suite of packages typically includes process flow charts, rules engines, and reporting software.
