OMG and Business Process Incubator Announce Relaunch of Enhanced BPMN.org Website

Needham, MA – January 11, 2012 – OMG® and the Business Process Incubator (BPI) have joined forces to enhance the Business Process Model and Notation specification’s website, BPMN.org, with more content and tools. The site is now live at http://www.bpmn.org

BPMN is a graphical notation that depicts the steps in a business process. BPMN depicts the end to end flow of a business process. The notation has been specifically designed to coordinate the sequence of processes and the messages that flow between different process participants in a related set of activities. This widely used and implemented standard (73 current and three planned implementations to date) is in use in both industry and government projects. BPMN.org provides information to organizations looking to implement the standard.

The new BPMN.org site will feature:

  • Improved navigation and more useful format, making it easier to find information
  • More resources, including libraries, guides, implementations, links to available tools
  • A comprehensive search function
  • Links to related content including OMG certification programs

“By partnering with BPI, OMG will be able to offer our members and visitors to BPMN.org an even better experience with improved BPMN.org functionality, and more resources thanks to Business Process Incubator. For OMG members, we will be rolling out widgets for the myOMG personanalized web portals, providing even more resources to members,” said William Hoffman, president, OMG.

Denis Gagné of Business Process Incubator added, “We are very happy to partner with OMG and contribute to the promotion of BPMN from OMG as the leading process modeling standard. This is a great showcase of how Business Process Incubator can provide relevant evergreen resources to our partners.”
