Understand how your business operation is critical to driving innovation. Leveraging BPMN, the Business and IT organizations collaborate to identify and improve inefficiencies that will increase productivity and improve customer experience.
The Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is a standard for business process modeling, and provides a graphical notation for specifying business processes in a Business Process Diagram (BPD). It is based on flowcharting techniques similar to activity diagrams from the Unified Modeling Language (UML). The objective of BPMN is to support business process management for both technical users and business users by providing a notation that is intuitive to business users yet able to represent complex process semantics. The BPMN specification also provides a mapping between the graphics of the notation to the underlying constructs of execution languages, such as Business Process Execution Language (BPEL).
The primary goal of BPMN is to provide a standard notation that is readily understandable by all business stakeholders. These business stakeholders include the business analysts who create and refine the processes, the technical developers responsible for implementing the processes, and the business managers who monitor and manage the processes. Consequently, BPMN is intended to serve as a common language to bridge the communication gap that frequently occurs between business process design and implementation.
