bpmNEXT 2015: Trisotech BPM Graph – Semantic Layer for Business/IT divide
bpmNEXT 2015: Trisotech BPM Graph – Semantic Layer for Business/IT divide presented by Denis Gagne, Trisotech
The Trisotech BPM Graph creates a semantic layer that allows the mapping of the expressed desired results (Ends) of an organization and the course of actions (Means) expressed in the organization’s business processes. This semantic layer is proposed as the missing link between the Business and IT divide to ensure a better Business and IT alignment. The Trisotech BPM graph provides a global context for Process Discovery, Modeling, Analysis and Execution. This semantic layer makes use of Ontologies to enable a mapping between (sometime more loosely defined) business views and their more structured and model driven counterparts from the world of IT. The BPM Graph lays down the foundations for the future of intelligent, goal oriented, agent based or semantic BPM.
