Metastorm, a provider of business process management (BPM), business process analysis (BPA), and enterprise architecture (EA) software for aligning strategy with execution, has released a new version of ProVision enterprise modeling, business architecture and business process analysis software suite, including updates to Metastorm’s web-based modeling repository.
The Metastorm ProVision enables organisations to model, visualise and improve the entire enterprise, resulting in a thorough understanding of the cause-effect relationships between business strategy, business processes and the systems and technology that support them, the company said.
According to Metastorm, the new enhancements in ProVision Version 6.2 include, a cross-repository sharing feature that facilitates inter-repository sharing and reuse of models, objects and information libraries within an enterprise. It enables organisations to synchronise collective knowledge to refine business processes and align business goals and processes enterprise-wide.
The ProVision 6.2 includes support for updated standards including BPMN 2.0, XPDL 2.1, UML 2.1, and DoDAF 2.0. Its ability to support multiple standard modeling notations and frameworks improves usability, interoperability and consistency.
In addition, the new version provides an interface to various open standards and enables integration with third-party software packages. The CIF has been extended to the Metastorm Knowledge Exchange repository in the form of a web service to provide organisations with enterprise-level interoperability of ProVision models with other systems and applications.
Greg Carter, executive vice president of product development and CTO of Metastorm, said: Our newest release of Metastorm ProVision and its associated Knowledge Exchange repository introduces a range of enhancements that enable collaboration across multiple projects, provide interoperability at the enterprise level, and deliver enhanced capabilities to support enterprise alignment and agility.
