When it comes to BPM (Business Process Management) software and business process optimisation, the modelling of these processes can be more or less complex, involve a variable number of players and services, be subject to drastic regulations or not…

However, their description, questioning and reorientation can be greatly facilitated by the use of a simple BPM tool designed to be taken in hand by business users: this is Phoenix Process Governance, our BPM modelling module.

Model your business processes in compliance with the BPMN2 standard

The BPMn (Business Process Model notation) standard aims to provide a framework for describing processes in a consistent and standardised way across all organisations.

One of the major advantages of the BPMn standard is its simplicity, since it is based on 3 main basic objects:

  • Activities
  • Connectors
  • Events

These elements are then “set in motion” by means of conversation and choreography diagrams using your data.

This standard is the most popular worldwide for process modelling. Introduced in 2006, it was updated in 2011 and BPMN2 is now generally accepted as the gold standard for process modelling. The Process Governance module therefore follows this standard fully to facilitate your projects.

Process Governance also facilitates cooperation between functional, business staff and IT teams in producing process models

Business managers define the roles, participants, stages and the various processing that is run, and how it all fits together into an overall business process or sub-process. “Technical” users are then able to define data flow orchestration mechanisms.

The tangible benefits of collaborative functionalities based on our process governance module

The seamless integration between the BPM module and the Data Foundation technology foundation brings you a host of benefits. One of its purposes is to model business processes, facilitating communication and collaboration between the functional (business) and technical (IT) populations.

This means higher quality projects thanks to the alignment of modelled and integrated processes, greater security thanks to the versioning of models, and considerable time savings thanks to the native collaborative functions.

Automatic creation of specifications

Process Governance allows you to automatically create a BPMN2-compliant specification from your process models.

Starting from a number of models and Word document archives, your specification can be generated automatically, using all the elements found in your process models, i.e. the participants, roles, processes followed, descriptions provided, etc. together with the entire technical aspect that will be necessary for project integration by the IT department. If you add extra documents to your model (screen images, files related to processes, invoice printing in PDF format, etc.), these can be used in the specification.

Automatic creation of BPM projects

Taking the modelling produced by business and IT project management teams, Phoenix will automatically generate the BPM project in the data flow design workshop where the target processes, data traffic, screens and documents necessary will all be set up.

This automatic integration delivers greater upgradeability as it manages versioning and allows you to backtrack if necessary to see previous versions of the process modelling. You can consequently be more agile, because you can deliver only those parts of a project that have changed (one screen, a process, etc.) without necessarily being obliged to deliver the entire project again.

All these aspects provide a standards-compliant working environment intended to ensure that processing matches the requirements as described.
