"Business Process Modeling (BPM)--sometimes known as Business Process Management" is not quite accurate.
Business Process Modeling is a academic and research discipline that has much to do with BIS/MIS area (Business/Management Information Systems). Another academic and research area related with BP Modeling is Rule-Based approach to develop IS for business.
Business Process Management is a different thing. I'm not saying that BP Modeling and BP Management has no connection between them, but it is not fair to confuse them.
Sometimes (unfortunate much to often) the tech world "still" something from academic world but without paying much attention to some essential basics of the that academic field.
