BPMN Roundtrip Success!

The BPMN Model Interchange Working Group (MIWG) confirmed smooth and complete process interchange at the OMG® Technical Meeting in Berlin.

MIWG, with the help of BPMN 2.0 compliant tools like Signavio, used the widely adopted Camunda Invoice Process to demonstrate the interoperability between different tools. MIWG chosed this process because it is often used as a best practice model in the manufacturing field.

Participants from eight different BPM vendors used their tools to build out consecutive sections of the process. Sven Wagner-Boysen played the part for Signavio. After the section before his was completed, he imported it seamlessly into the Signavio Process Editor from a USB key.

He modeled his section and saved it to the USB, and passed it to the next participant. In the end, all underlying attributes were confirmed and the process was imported into the Camunda BPM platform and executed to validate the interchange.
So What Does This Mean for BPM Today?

No more manual process model migration, and a higher degree of flexibility for users modeling with different tools. Process models are now easily transferred to other execution environments. And if you want to migrate your existing process models into highly professional tools like Signavio’s Process Editor, this will be not a problem anymore!

Camunda’s vision goes beyond the manual import and export feature: Camunda Cycle will link the work environments of different modeling tools and synchronize workflow based on these process models.
