 this world of Enterprise Architecture has always been a great platform for new initiatives. Whether it is the business analyst creating initial drafts of the Business processes or the technical developer designing XML languages for implementing those, all these business process users need to be provided with understandable standard notation for ease. Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) is that new standard for representing business process workflows and web services.



Here is a quick tour to the ins and outs of the Business Process Modelling Notation and its significance.



A. What does BPMN signify?



It is a graphical notation that shows the beginning-to-end flow of a business process. It could be as simple as online Order-Entry system, an online-auction system or as complex as event triggering system.



Primarily BPMN specifies a business process diagram or flowcharting techniques also known as (BPD). This diagram is designed in a way so that even non-technical users (management people) can understand and use it. BPD can model complex business processes too. Most importantly BPMN business process diagram can be paired with business execution languages and web services.



B. What are the Business Processes that use BPMN?



Commercial domain for example, Rational Unified Process (RUP) of IBM
Public domain/ Non-commercial process for example, Agile modelling and Unified Process



C. What are BPMN modelling tools?



Two types of modelling tools are available.



a. Opens source BPMN tools: Intalio or BPMS, BPMN Modeller
b. Closed Source BPMN Tools: Enterprise Architect, MagicDraw, Business Process Visual Architect, System Architect, Active VOS, UModel



D. How to select BPMN tools?



Firstly assess your own modelling requirements to determine what type of BPMN supports you need.



Then focus on additional supports that your Business Process Modelling Tool must provide you as follows:
Tool customization

Compliance with the BPMN specification for both notation and semantics

Model simulation and code-generation

Team development

Model interchange with other BPMN tools




Performance evaluation comes next where you need to evaluate BPMN modelling tools in several phases as mentioned:



Paper evaluation - Done by paper and electronic sources, such as vendor literature and analyst/expert reviews to narrow down your tool searches. You may also ask for preferred vendors to get reference of users already applied the same tools.



Hand-on-evaluation - Ensure that you select models with medium-to-large size among the listed ones. Also check whether the tools exercise all the features of your requirement listed and maintain responsiveness and quality of the tools software support.



Selection: Take the final call after considering other business issues like pricing, upgrading facilities etc.



While selecting the perfect BPMN tool, remember that BPMN is not a process or method; it is a modelling language that is expected to work with most of the business analysis method.



E. Current version of the BPMN specifications



The current BPMN specification is BPMN v. 1.2. . Object Management Group (OMG) maintains this specification. However major requests are forwarded by Requests for Proposals (RFPs).



F. How BPMN is more significant than other rival business execution languages?



Apart from BPMN there are few other emerging business process modelling languages that support business process modelling such as: 1. Business Process Executable Language (BPEL) - An XML-based executable language to represent business process 2.Unified Modelling Language (UML) - visual modelling language for specifying software-intensive systems 3. Web Services Choreography Description Language (WS-CDL) - XML-based non-executable language representing global business process.



But unlike all these rival languages, BPMN has more advantages in credit as follows:



1.BPMN enables modelling of B2B and B2C. Special notations can be added to BPD to depict message-based events and message being delivered across organizations.



2.BPMN can be defined to map directly to the BPML standard and other execution languages like BPEL4WS.



3.BPMN models web services into end-to-end business flows by assembling them and coordinating their behaviour.



You can learn more about BPMN from books as well as by taking Business Process Modelling Training from leading BPM service providers.
