process modeling notation in the world, we have now clearly
demonstrated that when properly implemented, BPMN
interchange is possible for both process diagrams and
executable processes," said Denis Gagné, chair of BPMN
MIWG and principal at Business Process Incubator.
"What has been accomplished is truly
impressive," said Dennis Wisnosky, Senior Advisor and
Consultant at the EDM Council. "It is the answer to
lossless data interchange between BPM tools that has been
only a dream for decades."
