Optimizing processes across a business requires clarity. Modeling the ‘as-is’ and ‘to-be’ state of a business can help guide improvements, while highlighting the connections between processes can enhance understanding and collaboration. However, taking a visual approach to displaying complex processes and systems requires a clear, comprehensive modeling language.
‘Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN)’ is a modeling language used to describe enterprise process workflows and business analysis applications. It can be easily understood by everyone from data architects, to software developers, to business stakeholders, which has helped to turn it into a global standard for business process modeling.
