Model-BPMS Roundtripping

Jakob Freund, camunda services GmbH. While BPMN 2.0 has achieved success at standardizing process modeling, executable design is still highly proprietary and vendor-driven. It is relatively easy to copy a process model from one vendor’s modeling tool to another, but there is no open, cross-vendor implementation platform for BPMN 2.0 business processes. This is different from the Java-World, which includes open middleware platforms for messaging, transaction processing and web services. We believe that the Java Platform of the future will provide a BPMN 2.0 process engine as a similar infrastructure service to applications. Our project camunda fox BPM platform delivers this vision and technology today, and provides BPMN roundtripping between any BPMN 2.0 compliant modeling tool and our process application development toolstack.

Jakob Freund has profound experience in BPM projects, especially in the area of strategic BPM, process modeling, and business-IT alignment. He is author of several books, founder of BPM-Netzwerk.de and gives lectures at the university of applied science in Zürich and Bern.
