ER/Studio 17 is now available with significant improvements to the Business Architect tool, including BPMN 2.0 compliance and validation for business process modeling. Companies can now easily create business processes using choreography, collaboration, and conversation model types. Any organization may use a number of different business processes for operations, sales, marketing, and other areas. Capturing the way a business works can be challenging, but data architects should work with business stakeholders to establish process models and ensure they are all speaking the same language, to create a solid foundation for enterprise architecture and data governance initiatives. IDERA’s Ron Huizenga and Kim Brushaber will share the highlights of the ER/Studio 17 release, discuss the importance of business process modeling as the first step for data governance, and demonstrate how ER/Studio Business Architect helps companies map and model the relationships between processes, people and data.
