Abstract (EN)Business process change and information systems development are usually associated in best business practices. However, it is not ever clear if the quality of business process change really impact on quality and value of information systems. To realize value from business process change through information systems quality, it is necessary to clearly define an improvement strategy regarding both business activities and operations and the IT applications embedding them. Davenport  identified three most important key factors driving IS value, deriving from business process change: integrate, optimize and informate. Integrate means to keep together large companies, with several different business units, operating all over the world. Optimize means to use business process change and IT applications development and implementation to perform more efficient and effective business activities and operations. Informate means to collect process and distribute information where, when and how users need it, supplying information services at managed cost and better quality. We suggest to add a key factor driving IS value deriving from business process change : Identify Knowledge. Identify Knowledge, means to identify knowledge, when and how users need it, improving services and process decision. Information Technologies bear the potential of new uses. These uses provoke a new organisation which induces a new vision of IS strategy. Under the influence of globalization, and the impact of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) that radically modify our relationship with space and time, the hierarchical company locked up on its local borders becomes an Extended Company, without borders, opened and adaptable. In this context, this paper proposes a shift in the way the design of Information Systems is viewed based on business process. The approach adopted is a global philosophy based on business process management within the framework of all the methodological principles. Empirical evidences are available, by an Italian large company, using business process management and knowledge capturing as an improvement strategy for IS value. This company defined a well conceived framework to realize the better quality of both business processes and IT applications, aiming to implement ongoing IS management activities, to continuously produce value from IS. This frame2 work is based both on BPM and on knowledge identification like instruments to improve the value of information systems and the quality of business processes.
