Enterprise Architecture BPMN

Enterprise Alignment

Developing a comprehensive framework for guiding and aligning an organization’s business processes and information technology with its overall strategy is key to achieving an end-to-end enterprise architecture. iGrafx provides an environment that enables organizations to better understand how their existing architecture works and how to plan and implement its improvement. iGrafx’s comprehensive business process modeling provides a solid foundation for analyzing and optimizing your business processes.

A Model-Oriented BPMN 2.0 Approach to Process Excellence

iGrafx helps organizations establish a structured approach to their enterprise architecture. Combining modeling technologies to visually document and present enterprise data such as strategies, roles, controls and risks, a metamodel to define and structure enterprise data, and a central repository to store and manage enterprise data, iGrafx provides a leading platform for efficient business process modeling across the enterprise. iGrafx supports the most common process modeling notations, from simple flowcharts to swimlanes to powerful standards such as the BPMN 2.0 notation. With our process modeling software, you get a tool to easily and quickly model your BPMN diagrams even across organizations.

 

iGrafx Software supports BPMN 2.0

BPMN 2.0 (Business Process Model and Notation 2.0) allows you to model business processes and clearly represent process landscapes. The BPMN 2.0 notation is supported by the iGrafx software suite. Customizable BPMN 2.0 icon palettes, automated pools and intelligent formatting options make iGrafx an efficient process management tool for creating and editing even highly complex BPMN diagrams.

  • Thanks to in-process correction, model development is accelerated and the accuracy of BPMN diagrams is ensured.
  • Existing Swimlane flowcharts can be easily converted to BPMN format, reducing time to implementation.
  • Simulation of BPMN models ensures that your models are optimized before the processes are realized in the execution environment.

BPMN 2.0 Web Modeling Software makes it easy to capture and model processes across the enterprise. Easy symbol placement, reuse of model objects in BPMN diagrams, and drag-and-drop of sub-processes allow you to quickly capture processes. With the intuitive, user-friendly interface, we guide you safely through BMPN 2.0, ensuring modeling standards are met and better communication between teams can take place.

Alignment with strategic goals

 With iGrafx, companies can leverage the knowledge contained in the framework to improve and streamline operational processes and systems and align them with strategic goals. With iGrafx’s Business Process Modeling, companies have the following opportunities:

  • Increase understanding of the connection between systems and processes and the interactions between systems with visual representations.
  • Align IT with the needs of the business
  • Provide better aligned solutions to problems and requirements of the business
  • Identify unused technology components that are still consuming resources
  • Determine current and target technology landscape
  • Increase return on technology investment through technology re-use and identification of unused assets
  • Identify gaps in process support
  • Leverage results gained from process improvement methodologies such as Six Sigma and Lean

 

BPMN 2.0 – Why?

  • Basic goal: Create transparency by using a unified process representation
  • Realization: By using a uniform process language, misunderstandings and scope for interpretation can be avoided.
