Process management collaboration using SharePoint®

Microsoft SharePoint® is an important platform for the collaboration of virtual project teams which is increasingly used by organizations. SharePoint® offers innovative combinations of workflow, forms and content management functionalities.

SharePoint® structures information in document libraries with versioned documents. Documents can be any type of files like Word documents, Excel® sheets or Visio® diagrams.
The documents can be associated with workflows to build a Process Governance Process like e.g. a request-to-change procedure. SharePoint® has built-in functions such as versioning control and authorization management for documents. This simplifies the governance of policy compliance e.g. like SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley Act) for BPM solutions in the discipline of GRC. BPM-X delivers added value to SharePoint®.

  • BPM-X Converter middleware uses SharePoint® webservices to integrate other BPM tools like ARIS® with the BPM collaboration platform
  • BPM-X Designer supports method-compliant modeling of Visio® diagrams in SharePoint®

Microsoft SharePoint® is offered in two product variants, which are both supported by BPM-X:

  • Microsoft Office SharePoint® Services (MOSS)
  • Windows SharePoint® Services (WSS)

The MOSS product has extended capabilities regarding collaboration services.

Benefits using SharePoint® in combination with BPM-X are

  • Extension of the scope of SharePoint® to other BPM tools for an integration BPM platform
  • Refinement of functionality already supported by SharePoint®, like method compliant modeling with Visio®
  • Easy online office collaboration increases the productivity of BPM
  • Introduction of versioning into BPM modeling and conversion in favor of policy compliance and revision management

The SharePoint® based BPM solution can be used

  • As a pure Microsoft BPM platform in combination with products like Visio®, SQL Server, Reporting Services and BizTalk®
  • In combination with expert BPM tools such as the ARIS® platform

The combination of expert BPM tools using SharePoint® as a BPM integration platform allows scenarios such as:

  • The ARIS® platform facilitates premium BPM services like process simulation or process cost calculations
  • The BPM-X Designer with Visio® coexists with ARIS® for typical BPM tasks like process capturing and process modeling
