The new tool further brings social and collaborative capabilities into business processes and applications
Business management software, applications and services provider SAP has released a new collaborative process modeling tool in the SAP StreamWork application.
The new tool enables groups of people to work together in real time using their Web browsers’ modeling processes.
SAP StreamWork allows users to track discussions, decisions, related documents and action items, and provides them with a record of the conversation and work for later reference.
The new cloud-based collaborative process modeling tool brings social and collaborative capabilities into business processes and applications.
The tool also reduces the entry barrier for process experts, end users and business analysts to participate in discussions about the actual flow of business processes by simplifying the way process models can be created collaboratively.
For visualisation of the process flow, the tool supports the open standard business process model and notation (BPMN),which allows it to be used in any BPMN-compliant application.
The process model created with the new tool can be used for documentation and simulation, and can also be translated into automated workflows by using tools such as SAP NetWeaver Process Orchestration software.
