BPMN Process Modeling
Use standard BPMN modeling to create graphical definitions of business processes. BPMN is an industry standard that simplifies communications between business and IT stakeholders to collaborate and manage the full process life-cycle.
Store process models in a native process repository with full version control, hierarchical categorization, search, and role-based security for controlled access to each model. Share and discover processes within the enterprise to leverage existing assets and services in an SOA approach.
Develop Appian Smart Services as a simple mechanism for IT developers to create and publish enterprise services for reuse. Typical SOA objects such as web services and other services can be abstracted into a drag-and-drop configuration. Smart Services make it easy for business users to understand and incorporate them into process models to consume and orchestrate in BPM software.
Run an agile and highly efficient enterprise with Appian’s BPM software. Execute and expand processes from departmental to enterprise wide deployments with flexibility and ease. Appian's linearly scalable architecture is designed to accommodate the most demanding process environments.
Visualize bottlenecks and process issues in the Appian Process Modeler with an immediate overlay of business activity metrics and performance data. Detailed Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) statistics are captured for each process, enabling business users to quickly identify issues and re-route process models for increased efficiency.
Identify process issues before publishing with Appian’s automatic process validation and debugging tools. Designers can immediately test a process from inside the process modeler to trace flow and resolve design issues in an iterative agile method for instant feedback.
