Has anyone read this paper yet? What are youur thoughts?

As a certified BPMN modeler, who is trying to learn the ropes of the BA world, I welcome the idea of having one modeling language that takes care of value streams and process modeling. I hope the OMG is listening and will consider Mr. Whittle's recommendations for expanding BPMN to include support for business architecture modeling.

I seem to recall a time when the OMG was considering a merge between BPMN and UML to create a full, rich modeling language, capable of handling the needs of Enterprise Architects. To my mind, this was a pretty good solution for a single modeling language. The gap was around value stream modeling; something that could have been addressed with a few extensions to this hybrid 'BPMUML'. The upside would have been a single modeling language used right from initial strategy to execution of the processes and code that supports them.

It is one of the best opportunity for our school students and every college essay writer. So many writers are interested to give best knowledgeable reviews to all the new content writers in this myeditingandwritingservices.com website. So, I am very happy to use these educational reviews.

Joining the discussion at Visio 9.6. Maybe you could take a look at the Interoperability provided by BPM-X. The Universal Bus with individual adaptors allow for a hub and spoke architecture. This enables Migration, Integration, Simplification for the business side and with BPM-X designer you can adopt the look and functionality of your favorite tool yet have the out put your client needs. http://bit.ly/EABPMN

There seem to be a split in modeling approaches between enterprise architecture and process architecture. OMG heading the standard group for enterprise architecture and suggest ArchiMate 2.0 for this type of modeling. For a Business Architects to use the enterprise architecture as a start using the business components which were defined in it and to then switch to BPMN to put those components into architectural processes does not make it easy. If both notations are used in various situations, OMG needs to consider how they are bridge. At Insurance Frameworks Inc., provider of no-cost Panorama 360 (an insurance and wealth management enterprise business architecture framework), we captured our models using an ArchiMate notation as suggested by OMG. If you want to discuss, you can write to me at Pierre.Gagne@InsuranceFrameworks.com.

I've recently purchased and used a BPMN 2.0 add-in to MS Visio 2010 Professional. I'm a BA and a process modeler and have found this combination very flexible to do what I it to do. You could try it for yourself through ITP Commerce's Process Modeler for Visio version 5 or 6.
