According to a recent press release, “IDERA, a leading provider of database lifecycle management solutions, has released ER/Studio 17, incorporating significant updates to its Business Architect process modeling tool. The new capabilities will help business analysts map and model relationships between people, processes and data as the foundation for enterprise architecture and data governance initiatives. As companies continue to grow and change, capturing everything involved in how a business works can be challenging. ER/Studio Business Architect provides a common language to help users bridge the communication gap between business process design and implementation.”
The release continues, “Key features include Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) 2.0 compliance and validation that combine intuitive visual modeling with the rich semantics of the BPMN 2.0 standard. ER/Studio 17 enables businesses to communicate about business processes in a clear and consistent manner. Even the most complex processes can be decomposed, modeled and understood using comprehensive capabilities and constructs for choreography, conversation and collaboration business processes. Validation against the BPMN 2.0 standard ensures that process models meet all the requirements for organizations that need it, and can be turned off for those that do not require rigorous adherence to the standard.”
John O’Brien, principal advisor and CEO of Radiant Advisors commented, “It is crucial for an organization to map out their business processes in order to effectively manage their operations and achieve their goals… ER/Studio Business Architect gives companies the capabilities to clearly document all aspects of those processes, identify any gaps or inefficiencies and communicate them across the organization.”
