Rapid Process Discovery with Interstage APD

September 12, 2011 Leave a comment

In a recent Q&A session with BPM consultant Anatoly Belychook, Peter Schooff of ebizQ discussed trends and best practices for process discovery and modeling.  It was an interesting discussion and the point Process Discovery - APDabout the best way of getting the “as-is” view of the processes in particular caught my attention.  Rapid process prototyping with short cycle that includes modeling and execution was advocated as a way to discover the process.  This approach works reasonably well, but still leaves a fair amount of uncertainty in the process definition that need be “wringed out” through iterative prototyping phases.

Automated Process Discovery

Interstage BPM offers a different approach that helps to improve and accelerate the rapid process discovery and prototyping — Automated Process Discovery (APD).  This is a unique technology originally developed at Fujitsu Labs that uses evidence-based approach, which relies on systems log data to trace the process and render the process flow.   Read more…
