Model, build, run

Overview

Bizagi Digital Business Platform allows you and your organization to manage your processes' complete life cycle: Model, Build, and Run, using a graphic background, with the least amount of programming.

With this complete Processes' life cycle, you will accomplish productivity, efficiency, and a profitable growth which will be sustainable in the long run.

Bizagi allows low start-up costs due to its free to use On-Premise Suite to design your solution.

 

With Bizagi Cloud, you rely on this Model, Build, Run life cycle, as described below.

For introductory information about Bizagi Cloud, refer to Bizagi Cloud overview.

 

Model

The first step to take when creating a Bizagi solution is to design the workflow or process flow. The workflow, known as a chain of activities, is the fundamental structure of the project, to which the variables and elements needed are included in accordance with an organization’s requirements.

 

We recommend that you use Bizagi Modeler to design and document your process maps. Bizagi Modeler is a freeware application, independent from Bizagi Studio. Bizagi Modeler is dedicated to giving you the best experience when designing and documenting workflows, using industry-standard Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN). BPMN is a standard accepted worldwide for process modeling.

 

Once the design of the workflow is complete, select Run Workflow on the Home tab of the Modeler. This one-button feature will automatically export the workflow to the construction environment, Bizagi Studio.

Build

After designing the Process, the next step is to build the solution, or in other words, automate. Automating involves converting all of the process activities into a technological application. Bizagi Studio is the authoring environment used to automate the processes that were defined with the Bizagi Modeler. Its 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.

Run

Once applications are built, they can then be exported and uploaded to Bizagi Cloud in a Test or Production Environment. Imported applications are presented in a Work Portal (web application) accessed through a browser. The solution will run in the cloud, based on the process model previously built. The cloud’s Work Portal watches for the correctness of the execution of the different tasks and activities that influence the business process. This is done by controlling and verifying that the tasks are done at the correct moment, ensuring it uses the correct person or resource and ensuring it is done according to your company's guidelines, objectives, and other fundamental rules.

Improve

Bizagi has a complete set of performance reports and indicators about the processes, allowing you to analyze your business operations in real-time and analyze historical performance information. These indicators enable process owners and business managers to gain insight into business operations and identify bottlenecks, resource performance, service levels and trends. This information is the basis for process improvement.

 

The observations and conclusions obtained from these BAM and Analytics reports in the Work Portal allow opportunities for improvements to the processes to be identified.

 

Based on your findings, processes and business rules can be adjusted in real time using the Work Portal. Improvements can also be done by using Bizagi Studio to generate a new version of the process. These new versions can be taken to production in a short period of time without requiring any programming. By simply modifying the business model and exporting it to the cloud, the application will adapt automatically, making it easier to ensure continuous improvement and to increase productivity in your organization.
