BPMN as an Ambassador Between Business and IT
Bridging of the gap between various mindsets of the operating department and IT still remains a great challenge. What new possibilities are being developed for communication between these parties when using BPMN as a modeling language? From the beginnings of business process management to the new standard for business process modeling.
BPMN - A Language for Business?
The communication between operating departments and software developers continues to be problematic. Despite best efforts, business and IT continue to speak a multitude of different languages. BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation) wants to be the common process modeling notation for business and IT and, in doing so, bridge the gap between the two worlds. Can BPMN live up to its own expectations? How well can business processes be modeled at a technical level? How is this implemented in IT?
A Methodical Approach for Business Analysts with BPMN
The methods and processes used by business analysts will change for the tasks of requirements analysis and process modeling when BPMN 2.0 is introduced. A modeling methodology is planned for when BPMN 2.0 is implemented in combination with UML 2 for model-based structuring of the tasks assigned to a business analyst. The aim of this is to answer the question of how a business analyst gets from an empty piece of paper to a resilient process description which can be prepared in detail in the IT department right up until the process is executed.
Modeling with BPMN 2.0 in SOA Projects
BPMN is becoming more and more popular. The new standard in version 2.0 promises to support process automation in SOA projects. We explain an approach for a suitable modeling methodology and use a simple example to show you how processes and services can be linked.
