Hi @Mohammed Sulty, @Andrew-Lim, @AnkushJain, @Niels Doeleman, @David March, @Harald Sommer, @Majd Abbassi, @Victor Lever and @SumitKumar9,
Would you possibly have any inputs to help @Kaustubh Dani with their question?
Thanks in advance.
@Evgeny Belenky @Kaustubh Dani,
Nowadays, most BPMs allow you to import and export BPMN models without much difficulty. especially if you are using the out-of-the-box solution.
The model will remain intact on most occasions. However, the main challenge will be the attributes/ metadata which may not find their way to the new BPM, i.e. the export and import attributes may not be described in the same manner.
Things can get a bit more complex if there is customization from the source of import (e.g. iGrafx).
If you are dealing with a small number of process models, you can test the export and import functionality and see what attributes/ metadata are missing.
For a bigger volume of the process model, it's more economical for the new BPM consultant to prepare a script to import the model and attributes. The export model and task attributes will need to fit into the import ARIS Function Allocation Diagram (FAD).
I need to create a comparison chart for these 2 Business Process Design tools: ARIS BPA vs iServer. The product is intended to be used by a bank.
Can you please share the main differences (features, technology, etc.) between these products?
Thanks for your help!
