The paper addresses the business value discussion of IT focussing on Business Process Management (BPM), where BPM is understood as an integrated management concept with IT as a critical enabling technology. To answer the question if there could be any financial benefit effects due to implementation of BPM an analysis was made based on secondary as well as field research methods. The results of the study examination and the real case studies prove that Business Process Management provides significant financial benefits for companies.
