Announces BPMN Model Interchange Working Group
Seeks participants to help build test framework
Needham, MA- 01-22-2013- The Object Management Group
(OMG®) is pleased to announce the creation of the Business
Process Model and Notation Model Interchange Working Group
(BPMN MIWG). The purpose of BPMN MIWG is to ensure the
smooth interchange of BPMN models between tools that
implement the standard. The group is currently seeking
participants to join and is welcoming both OMG members and
interested nonmember organizations.
The purpose of the interchange test framework is to
support, facilitate and promote the interchange of BPMN
Models amongst tools that implement the BPMN standard. The
test framework will help tool providers iron out any
wrinkles in their exchange of BPMN models, as well as
identify any ambiguities in the OMG standard, which can then
be resolved by OMG's BPMN Specification Task Force (RTF).
"BPMN 2.0 is the most successful Business Process
standard around, but there are still some loose-ends in the
interchange of BPMN 2.0 files that require some
attention," stated Denis Gagné, chair of BPMN 2.0 MIWG
and principal at Business Process Incubator. "The BPMN
MIWG was created to support, facilitate and promote the
interchange of BPMN Models amongst various tools…All
organizations, be they end users or software vendors, are
invited to participate. We hope that this effort will help
propel BPMN 2.0 adoption even more."
BPMN provides a graphical notation and precise model for
specifying business processes. It has been an OMG-adopted
standard since 2005.
Work on the interchange test framework will begin shortly
with BPMN MIWG holding weekly web meetings. The group will
have its first in-person meeting at OMG's technical meeting
in Berlin, Germany during the week of June 17th-21st. All
parties interested in contributing are invited to join. For
