Process Doctor


I am currently serving as the Process doctor.
I am a proponent of Douglas Engelbart’s vision that the aim of a computer system is to enhance human intellect, rather than substitute it, or turn humans into slaves.

His main specialty is finding research topics in his business practice, and testing research results in the business practice. Dr. Bider is an inventor of the state-oriented approach to business process modeling and control that is based on the application of the conceptual ideas of the Mathematical system theory to the realm of business processes. This approach has been successfully tested in business analysis and software application development practice of IbisSoft and its partners. Dr. Bider puts a lot of effort in bridging the gap between the academics and practitioners.
