  • Microsoft’s platform-as-a-service (PaaS) considerably reduces IT costs for infrastructure, hosting and maintenance.
  • Minimal requirements for training and application support.
  • Elimination of implementation costs by using a ready-to-run turnkey solution.

Use cases focused with BPM for the masses

The solution comprises all relevant tools and functionalities that organizations require for EA or BPA. It is designed for business users rather than focusing on technical teams only. It provides process visibility and spreads BPM initiatives to a wider audience.

Cloud-based modeling
Microsoft® Office Visio® is the de-facto standard in many organizations for process mapping and diagramming. It is easy to use and licenses are considered low-priced. Many business users are familiar with the tool. BPM-X has kept the familiar user interface of Visio® and enhanced it by a rule-engine which communicates with the cloud backend using web services. An offline working mode optimally supports consultants and business users in their work. It is good for them to know that their modeling is based on real objects with real identities and properties. This brings modeling power to the business desktop, such that the enhanced Visio® approach can very well compete with specialized, but often complicated tools.

Collaboration and workflows
Changes need to be captured and tracked. Information flows between the roles involved in a governance process. This is the domain of SharePoint® with its user-friendly collaboration platform.

Reporting and publishing
Simply using Internet Explorer® permits users to retrieve required information from analytic reports. Data can be stored in most popular formats like Microsoft® Office Excel® or Word®. Web-based model publishing allows easy access to business process data including associated governance and control documentation.

Information integration
Due to the built-in BPM-X Integration Server, object data from ARIS®, SAP®, CMDBs and other sources can be re-used, including graphical diagrams.

Publishing ARIS® data to open formats
It is convenient to use BPM-X for the publishing of ARIS® data with HTML, SharePoint® or web-based reporting.

Replace ARIS® by the BPM-X solution
ARIS® is fully replaced by using the BPM-Xchange® enterprise repository based on SharePoint® and Microsoft® SQL Server®.
