In response to a post that I wrote back in August about Metastorm acquiring Proforma, Jerome Pearce recently wrote the following comment:
I have just tried to convert a ProVision workflow model to a Metastorm BPM (e-work). I cannot see how it could produce a proper process in e-work. The concepts of the two packages do not map well.
Can anyone actually show me a design in ProVision that has been converted to Metastorm BPM using the provided Exchange tool? Nothing I have ever come up with in e-work could be properly represented in ProVision as the elements do not really match. There is no concept of ‘Stage’ in ProVision, and the use of Map Segments for sub-workflows makes the result very difficult to change (which is after all the whol point of e-work).
can anyone show us a real example?
I reproduce this here since I think that a lot of people don’t follow the comments feed so would miss a comment on an older post.
Any ideas on solving Jerome’s problem?
