Business-Empowered Implementation
  • Traditional implementation uses process model as “requirements”
    • Implementation starts over in a separate tool
    • Different process metamodel, data model, programming model…
  • Changes in design lose sync with the model
    • “Roundtripping problem”

Business-Empowered Implementation
  • BPMN the key to second generation BPMS
    • Tool shared by business and IT
      • One process metamodel, data model, programming model
    • No more roundtripping problem
      • True integration of modeling and design

what is bpmn
What is BPMN?
  • A diagramming notation for business process models
  • An OMG standard
  • Shared by business and IT
    • Familiar to business
      • Swimlane-style flowchart
      • Just 3 basic shapes
    • Expressive and precise semantics for IT
      • Underpinning of actual executable implementation
  • Lightweight, methodology-neutral
    • Just the activity flow(orchestration)
    • Can be used with wide variety of analytical methodologies

making models executable
Making Models Executable
  • Implementation design done by IT
    • Layer executable detail on top of model activities
    • BPMS provides a “BPMN engine”

benefits for business and it
Benefits for Business… and IT
  • Faster time to value
    • More responsive to changing requirements
  • Get it right the first time
    • Shared commitment by business and IT
  • A better visual “language” for solution requirements
    • Exception paths shown explicitly in the model
  • Shared visual context for performance monitoring
