Communication is essential - FlowPoint & FlowComposer Print E-mail

Thanks to FlowPoint and FlowComposer Business and Technical Experts can work closely together in the formal specification and implementation phases.

Business and Technical Experts share the same view of processes.

With FlowPoint, the goal is to provide Business Experts, who are not technical, with a simple and intuitive tool to specify and document the processes they know. They can describe the sequence of "human tasks", define roles, the flow of information exchanged, and describe the conditions for moving from one step to another.

But they also have access to process components (pre-configured connectors, role resolution primitives, generic sub processes, etc.) pre-packaged by Technical Experts.

With FlowComposer, Technical Experts select and configure the right components according to the information system.

Although the power of expression increases with FlowPoint, a technical validation is strongly recommended prior to publishing a process, especially for processes which interact with the information system.
