Central Process Repository
iServer provides a central repository for business and process analysts to collaborate on business process models, activity diagrams and value chains, as well as associated documentation. The repository acts as the storage point for process diagrams, extending and enhancing the Microsoft Visio interface for collaborative, dynamic modeling. Associated process documentation in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint formats can also be stored in the repository. iServer provides a number of collaboration features, including role-based permissions, change management (versioning), import/export abilities and search.
Process Simulation Tools
Using iServer Process Simulator, teams can visualize their ideas for process change and optimization, analyze the impact of those changes, and run and compare multiple resourcing scenarios. It also enables teams to qualify multiple possible future outcomes, determine optimal process pathways and resourcing, and justify investment for change in a risk-free environment.

Extensive and Powerful Analysis Tools
iServer's Business Process Analysis capabilities provide a variety of tools that aid decision making and analysis. These include heatmaps, where process diagrams are dynamically colored and annotated with data-driven graphics. iServer also facilitates process change impact analysis for the dynamic visualization of dependencies, answering questions such as “if we retire this application, what is the impact on our business processes?” Dashboards and reports present key process information to executive stakeholders, while matrices allow relationships to be depicted and edited in bulk, such as a RACI Matrix, identifying Responsible, Accountable, Consulted and Informed actors.
