History of BPMN

Business Process Management Initiative (BPMI) developed BPMN, which has been maintained by the Object Management Group since the two organisations merged in 2005. Version 2.0 of BPMN was released in January 2011, at which point the name was adapted to Business Process Model and Notation as execution semantics were also introduced alongside the notational and diagramming elements.

Benefits of BPMN

  • Viewing systems from multiple perspectives.
  • Discovering causes and effects using model traceability.
  • Improving system understanding through visual analysis.
  • Discovering errors earlier and reducing system defects.
  • Exploring alternatives earlier in the system lifecycle.
  • Improving impact analysis, identifying potential consequences of a change, or estimating modifications to implement a change.
  • Simulating system solutions without code generation.
  • Enabling quick and easy understanding of your systems within an organization by all members of your teams.
  • Assisting new team members in getting up to speed quickly.
