Business process models created in the blueprinting phase of an SOA or ERP project can be leveraged for managing and improving the end-to-end integration, user acceptance and non-regression testing. The blueprinting exercise can deliver you much more value than just documenting and scoping of a new IT solution.



Modeling or framework standards are very important for correctly describing semantics through models and thus establishing a good communication among different stakeholders. But regular everyday experience is teaching us that model and diagram interchange (MDI) with e.g. UML® models (via XMI) or BPMN™ models (via XPDL) does not always work well to receive high quality deliverables, to say the least. And please forget about round-tripping among tools. So MDI is usually a somewhat horrible exercise for architects or developers.

Process mapping and process modeling, two sides of the same coin?

The main objective of process mapping is to achieve transparency and to align business processes (BPs) with company rules or legal regulations for the benefit of compliance. BPs are documented as diagrams using for instance flow charts or BPMN™ notations. Process modeling on the other hand is the analysis and optimization of the business architecture. Doing so involves a functional decomposition of BPs and the use of different views and viewpoints like organizations, data, goals or the organizations’ performances.
