2016 MIWG BPMN Interchange
W4 is participating again this year in the MIWG Model Interchange Working Group BPMN Interchange Demonstration during the OMG conference in Reston, March 16, 2016.
This is the fourth consecutive year of this event. This time, together we will create a complex BPMN diagram and pass it to different execution engines. We will also show how additional (hidden) attributes can be exchanged between BPMN tools.
You can register to watch the broadcast of the live event (Google Hangout) on this Google+ page.
Below you will find highlights from last year in Berlin..
OMG's quarterly technical meeting was held in Berlin, Germany, June 15 to 19, 2015. During this event, the BPMN Model Interchange Working Group members demonstrated BPMN 2.0 in action with 3 different scenarios. This session took place at 4 PM on Wednesday the 17th (GMT+2).
BPMN 2.0 Diagram Interchange
For the 3rd time, 10 different tools chaining together designed a Business Process, starting from a blank page. In a demo where the tools worked at the same time, it was shown that BPMN diagrams are indeed interchangeable and have been for some time now.
Hidden Attributes Interchange
Not only the drawing is depicted by the standard, BPMN 2.0 also defines a full set of attributes that are not visible, but meaningful for the Business Process Design. This demo highlighted that any piece of hidden information can be moved from tool to tool.
Execution Attributes Interchange
The Business Process models are made executable by adding execution attributes (could be extensions) since Execution Engines require more details. The demo demonstrated 3 different BPM Suites run from the same BPMN file, created with several design tools.
