BPMN and its Future
The Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) Standard was kicked off in 2002. It took many years to develop and then gain a place in the BPM market. Now, on version 2, BPMN is established as the major process modeling language for most BPM software tools. These tools range from descriptive process modeling to process management systems. This presentation contains a brief review of how BPMN came into being and a summary of the overall BPMN capabilities. Looking towards the future, the presentation will discuss how BPMN could be extended to handle additional process modeling challenges, such as for Case Management and the modeling of service implementations.
