Workshop: BPM In An EA Context

Here’s my presentation slides from the workshop that I gave on Wednesday here at the IRM BPM conference in London, entitled Architecting A Business Process Environment:

As always, some slides may not make much sense without my commentary (otherwise, why would I be there live?), but feel free to ask any questions here in the comments.

  1. Can you commend on enhancements in BPMN 2.0 related to “Serialization for model interchange”? Do you mean that the process designed can be exported and imported from and to different modelling applicatons? I would appreciate if you could provide some info on this. I have faced situations where processes are designed in say blueprint and we have to redo it because the new app does not read/understand blueprint processes.

  2. That’s exactly what it means: BPMN 2.0 includes an interchange format for exporting models from one tool and importing into another. Bruce Silver writes more about it at http://www.brsilver.com/2011/04/05/a-profile-for-bpmn-interoperability/ and http://www.brsilver.com/2011/04/05/three-cheers-for-bonitasoft/ — as he points out, the standard doesn’t quite close the loop on that, but he and others are working towards making it more of a reality. Even without BPMN 2.0 for model interchange, most vendors support XPDL, which is an older model interchange standard.
