BPM Connect

Export Microsoft Visio business process diagrams for import and execution within a Business Process Management Suite (BPMS)

What is BPM Connect?

iServer BPM Connect enables you to export BPMN 2.0 XML compliant Visio based process diagrams from iServer’s central repository, as well as those stored on your local computer, to a standard XML data format. This XML data can then be consumed by other workflow and operational tools or business process management suites (BPMS), and automated.

Features of BPM Connect

export-diagrams-res
Export and Validate Diagrams

Export BPMN 2.0 compliant Visio based process diagrams from iServer’s central repository, as well as those stored on your local computer, to a standard XML data format.

export-diagrams-res
Validate Diagrams from your Local Computer

Users are able to select desired BPMN diagrams for export via the iServer BPM Connect console. Diagrams are then validated to ensure they are compliant BPMN 2.0 diagrams before they are exported.

export-diagrams-res
Link Processes and Diagrams

Users can map and relate process hierarchies, intermediate events and processes that span across multiple diagrams.

export-diagrams-res
Save Standard XML Output Files

Users can then select the location on the local drive where they would like the XML export file to be saved. This is the file that can be imported into third party BPMN or operational process based tools.

Benefits

  • With BPM Connect users are able to bulk export their process diagrams to many BPMS tools for automation. This supports a quick response to continuous process improvement and business transformation.
  • Map relationships and links across multiple diagrams for export within the same XML file. This enables users to both export multiple diagrams at a time, as well as export diagrams which have multiple pages while still maintaining the relationships, drill downs, and interfaces.
  • Improve the quality of the process diagrams before they are exported into the BPM Suite. Process diagrams are validated against BPMN 2.0 standards, and objects are mapped to processes prior to export.
business-outcomes

Business Outcomes

  • BPM Connect creates an integration between iServer architecture repository and 3rd party BPM Suites, allowing users to export Visio process diagrams from within the repository into the BPM Suite for execution.
  • Bulk export process diagrams, saving time and costs, and eliminating the need to manually export diagrams into a workflow environment.
  • Visualize impacts across the project landscape and develop a comprehensive understanding of the business, projects, and infrastructure impact of projects.
who-uses-it

Who uses it?

  • BPMS Administrator/Managers will be able to export multiple process diagrams from within the iServer repository or from a local computer to a BPMS and Workflow systems, increasing reuse of BPMN 2.0 compliant process diagrams across the organization.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • Highly Customisable yet Intuitive EA Platform

    We are a technology company who develop an IT system that is used within the UK utilities market. The reason for our wishing to implement iServer was twofold, firstly to maintain and track a detailed model of our product and secondly to allow us to implement a TOGAF based architecture function.

    The vendor is very responsive to any and all issues I report. They take the time to ensure your environment is setup properly the first time. Training was very focused and they were willing to answer all questions I threw at them.

  • Flexible, user-friendly tool which is highly configurable and affordable.

    iServer has met our requirements and expectations. Orbus have provided attentive and timely support throughout our relationship. Have seen many of our suggestions for product improvement added to the development pipeline and then added to the iServer product suite. In the past promises of new versions and features were not meeting promised release dates, but over the last couple of years Orbus has done a much better job of delivering against their roadmaps
