The first step to be able to deploy your processes to Bizagi Cloud is to design, build and automate your processes. Process automation is how you can convert your process flows into technological applications.
Bizagi Studio is the tool used to automate process flows. Bizagi Studio's easy-to-use wizard will guide you through each of the steps to create your complete process model: Steps include defining the data model, the user interface, the business rules, the work allocation and the integration with other applications, among other things.
The authoring environment using Bizagi Studio is called the Development environment. The Development environment is the first of the three suggested environments that support your digital transformation from beginning to end. The three environments are:
•Development environment: The authoring environment where the implementation phase is carried out.
•Testing environment: Used for user acceptance tests.
•Production environment: End user's working environment.
