Lowering the Barriers to BPMN

Gero Decker, Signavio. BPMN is sometimes criticized for presenting too steep a learning curve for untrained business users, but the right tooling solves that. Signavio’s browser-based BPMN editor in the cloud offers advanced input modes that guides users with no BPMN or process modeling knowledge in creation of diagrams. QuickModel generates BPMN from a basic spreadsheet-like input, and Process on Voice generates diagrams from voice input. For more complex models, Signavio provides built-in validation against conventions that promote “good BPMN,” such as BPMN Method and Style.
