Where once you’d needed two products, suddenly consumers could harness the benefits of both in one potent package. Shower shelves and floors were liberated from the congestion of multiple shampoo and conditioner bottles the world over. The correct proportion of shampoo:conditioner was always used, meaning a consistent result every wash. Time waiting for the shower for house-mates went down 25 or even 50% (made-up figures), and electricity bills plunged.
Signavio has taken an equally important step in combining the ability to execute business decisions from within the Collaboration Portal, transforming your Signavio Collaboration Portal into a Compliance Portal.
Although having decision making (business rule) functionality directly embedded in your BPM process models seems like a no-brainer, this duality is actually a powerful, customer-centric step towards simplicity and efficacy. A quick search of the internet reveals in fact that no other BPM software vendor has this functionality available.
So what are the benefits of having BPMN and DMN integrated at your organization?
Combined BPMN/DMN models means whole sections of the BPMN model can be simplified and condensed into clear, usable decision tables. This means that model users are able to deliver accurate, compliant service to customers, boosting customer experience and process accuracy.
Business rule compliance is also elevated as decision models link the tasks in the BPMN model to the correct business rules. In a fast-changing regulatory environment, integrating business rules in this way supports responsive change management, as users can work with speed and confidence knowing that the output of the decision table will always produce a compliant result. This confidence ensures stakeholders and business users of the models can pass that assurance on to their customers, as work can be completed correctly first time, everytime. This also makes quality assurance activities easier to manage and monitor.
Business processes are already a combination of the sequence of tasks required to create a product or service, and the decisions required to ensure that the product is of high quality and compliant with business rules. Decision points act as nodes in the process, governing the way a process unfolds, and ultimately the output. Combining both the business rules and business process into a holistic, single source of truth in your Collaboration/Compliance Portal ensures a holistic model of the whole process, allowing for better control, responsiveness, and identification of opportunities.
So will BPMN/DMN model integration be the 2-In-1 Shampoo of the Business world? As 2-In-1 Shampoo revolutionized the hair-cleansing market by simplifying the process of washing and conditioning and combining two related but seemingly self-contained solutions, Signavio’s BPMN/DMN integration produces the same game-changing outcome. By streamlining business processes and clearly aligning business rules with their related tasks, performance, compliance, and value are put front and centre, enabling Signavio users to level-up their Collaboration Portal to Compliance Portal status.
