Hi Tuslim

As a recovering low-code skeptic, I have looked at a lot of the options out there. You can find details, comparisons, reviews, and more here on IT Central. 

Personally, for my work internally and with clients, I am a huge fan of Bizagi. The cost to model, develop, and test is just in manpower. The tools are free. Costs come in when you move to production. My current client is on-prem, but there is also a cloud option. TCO is favorable compared to others in the top-right quadrant of Gartner or top right of the Forrester wave. 


Officially,  I am on holiday, so I will keep this short until my return, lest The Boss sees me work g when I am supposed to be relaxing :) 

Cordially, 


Arr

Hi Tuslim,


Check out AuraQuantic BPM. We at Intertec Systems work with them for the last 4 years on several implementations from 5 users to 1000 internal users. It gives a good mix of BPM that can manage complex processes and DMS capabilities.

Hi Tuslim, Signavio is ranked #1 and highly rated on PeerSpot, so you may want to read some of the reviews in your process. Having said that, you can see the list of alternatives to Signavio.


Hope that helps!

It really depends on what your ultimate goal is. Are you looking for a tool for doing only modeling or one that you can leverage into a starting point for intelligent process automation? What do you dislike about Signavio? What do you like? 

I'm happy to help, but the more you can share, the better the recommendations from others here on IT Central will be.

@Tuslim Mohaungoo Well, for my money, Bizagi is the tool of choice. Add in an RPA tool like Automation Anywhere or UIPath or Blue Prism and you have a very strong suite at a great value.

Hello


Yes it really does depend on what you are trying to do. For just process modelling you could look at IBM Blueworks Live.


But if you want to export BPMN models to other non IBM tools then you will hit the Achilles heel of Blueworks Live. This is an area where I think Signavio does well.

We are very happy with Signavio and the end-user acceptance is high. But depending on your goal other options could be alternative, e.g. Adonis.

I must admit I am a bit biased but QualiWare is the tool that you are looking for. Whether for just business process management (using any number of notations including BPMN), to add risk management with controls, or as a full-blown Enterprise Architecture tool that can feed a process engine. OOTB QualiWare implemented on-premise, in a private cloud or SaaS gives you all of the functionality that you will ever need. BPM and EA tools can help drive business transformation, organizational change, and corporate agility so they need to enable two-way engagement with the whole business, not just within IT. A key value driver for QualiWare is that content consumers don't need to know the software - just need to be able to use a web browser to access, analyze and update process/repository content (driven by a full OOTB governance workflow engine). We have been doing this with great success for over 10 years using QualiWare for clients of all sizes (100 -100,000 staff). https://www.closereach.ca

Hello community members, At the moment, I'm tasked to develop the enterprise architecture of the organization and I have a couple of questions below: What capability models/mapping (business architecture) do you know/exist and how do they eventually connect to the application, data, and infrastructure architecture?  What tools and/or templates can I use? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi @Linda NamayanjaPMP,CBPA,ITIL ​, Choosing the right EAM tools involves various steps that are aimed to ensure smooth integration and maximum benefits. Some points collected with the help of my peers may be of help to you. Understanding the benefits of EAM tools: Through advanced and integrated features, EAM tools help you to uncover and avoid unmanaged IT applications that would otherwise increase your cloud spend and create potential security risks for sensitive data. Once you understand the benefits that modern EAM tools have to offer, you can focus on finding the right solution for you and your EA strategy. Choosing an EAM tool based on your EA program: When opting for an EAM tool, make sure that it helps you achieve your business and IT goals. These could be application portfolio management, technology risk management, post-merger IT integration, or an overall business transformation. Assessing needs of stakeholders: Since you don't want to create another IT silo, you should ask yourself what informational needs each stakeholder has and how EA can bridge knowledge gaps. Ideally, the tool will foster cross-department collaboration and optimize workflows. Stakeholders should be able to access data and drive their own analysis. On top of that, QA mechanisms will improve overall data quality. Reviewing the data model of prospective EAM tools: Make sure to evaluate the data model of your prospective EAM tools. You should be able to align it with your current terminology and attributes and assign authorization roles with ease. Measuring the onboarding process against goals: Once you have settled on an EAM solution that fulfills your current and foreseeable future needs, you can start with the onboarding process. It’s important to set initial goals and keep measuring the process as you go. From data mapping, imports, workspace reviews, and success KPIs – ideally, the tools allow you to use the desired form of measuring your onboarding success and keep track of the work in progress. Some products suggested by my peers are below BiZZdesign Enterprise Studio Avolution Abacus Software AG Alfabet Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect Hope the above will help you choose the right solution for your requirement.

Hi colleagues, We're looking for BPM/BPD/etc. software that can connect the top layer of Enterprise Architecture (EA) to our processes.  Do you have any recommendations? Is it achievable? Thanks

@Zooo Sasasa ​ Signavio, ARIS, and GBTEC have ArchiMate modules for modeling Enterprise Architecture (EA) and are great potential candidates.

I think you may need to be a bit more explicit as too “what” is the “top layer” and “how” do you wish to “connect” and “why”. Anything is possible from a modelling point of view, less so if you plan to generate the processes from the architecture.  Just about every relationship between architectural components is a “many-to-many” relationship, so things can get quite complex quite quickly.
