    ABOUT THIS SESSION:

    How does business process management (BPM) fit into a more holistic enterprise architecture (EA) context? Although many BPM methodologies and tools suggest standards for process modeling such as BPMN, there are typically no guidelines for how to create process models that align with various EA frameworks and the other models that exist within them.

    This workshop is focused on how to align your BPM initiatives with your EA practices from a business and technology view, specifically in environments that change frequently due to continuous improvement efforts. This will include:

    • Creating process models using the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN 2.0) standard.
    • Establishing usage guidelines for both business and technical BPMN models: what elements are required for different capability levels.
    • Where different levels of process models fit within EA frameworks.
    • Other interdependent model types within the EA framework: how process models interact with data models, organizational models and others.
