Score one for the BPMN "Zealots"

Score one for the “BPMN Zealots“, as Bruce Silver reports:

Today Software AG announced a tight integration between ARIS, its leading Business Process Analysis suite, and webMethods, its SOA-based BPM Suite.  The integration features roundtripping and continuous synchronization between business-oriented and developer-oriented models in those tools.  The medium of interchange is BPMN 2.0 XML.

EPC was previously ARIS focus, but as Bruce Silver says:

…and Software AG now recommends that for new modeling projects where the intent is to automate in webMethods, ARIS users model in BPMN 2.0 from the start. This move is really heartening to me, and highlights the key new feature of BPMN 2.0, which is interchange between modeling tools.

Glad to see ARIS and Software AG getting on the BPMN bandwagon.  Interestingly, they ran an April Fool’s joke about ditching EPC…Sometimes the April Fool’s jokes hit a little close to home.
