BPM and Workflow ?

Dear Gurus,
This post is opened for all readers,you can share your knowledge or discuss any un clear points for the topic of this post.

This thread is simply asking one question :
What's the difference between BPM and Workflow ?
BPM : is business process management.
WF : is workflow.
alot of people get confused between both technology terms,simple you can ask the same question but in another form :
Should i use MS Biztalk or Windows workflow for building Workflow application ? since biztalk also contains Workflow engine.

if you wana build a business application which contains a workflow you can build it using windows workflow foundation,and this fit your requirement from implementation perspective.

but what about if you want to mintor these activities ? if you want to interface with other technologies or you have alot of other system with different languages which interact on this workflow.........then on this case you have to use a MS Biztalk to build you business process and your workflow and at the same time you can interface with more than different systems with monitoring capabilites.

This is a bit of information for clear the Confusion of BPM and workflow terms.
