Business stakeholders need to ensure that everyone in the organization understands how to describe the corporate data and business processes in consistent terms. Business Architect provides an easy-to-use visual interface to document, understand, and publish information about conceptual models and business processes so they can be leveraged to achieve business objectives.
Any organization will use a number of different processes for operations, sales, marketing, and other areas. Capturing the way a business works can be challenging, but without doing this, the business cannot operate efficiently. With ER/Studio Business Architect, business users can easily model and better understand the often-complex relationships between processes, people, and data.
Save and export conceptual models from ER/Studio Business Architect as .dm1 files, and open them in ER/Studio Data Architect to use as the basis for logical data model development. Using the same terms and high-level descriptions for the data models will improve both data and model consistency.
ER/Studio Business Architect includes automatic validation of process diagrams to ensure compliance with the BPMN 2.0 specifications. Easily validate your business, choreography, collaboration, and conversation processes and subprocesses based on the BPMN 2.0 standards (in real time or as needed). View syntax violations against the specification.
In ER/Studio Business Architect, sensitive and personally identifiable data can be designated as such, to ensure compliance with internal business standards and external mandatory regulations such as GDPR, HIPAA, and SOX. Both data and business professionals can embrace their enterprise data environment to maximize the value of data governance initiatives.
