“Automation is Here to Stay. Automated business process discovery (ABPD) completely changes the dynamic. Today’s automation software overcomes these obstacles by “watching” business users perform their normal activities in their enterprise applications and business systems – ERP applications, web apps, and many more. Using artificial intelligence, ABPD then chains together business processes across different end-users to traverse organizational silos, giving you an accurate view of the full end-to-end business process and all its variations.
Understand. Document. Optimize. The value in capturing this level of detail is enormous. ABPD uses the process results to automatically create accurate business flow chart diagrams, complete with detailed documentation of every process step performed by the user, as well as screenshots of the enterprise application at each step. The visual process flow can also include heat maps and analytics to help prioritize investment in process improvement initiatives. This automation technology can make once tedious and time consuming documentation for training, audit, SOX and other regulatory compliance as easy as a click of the button.
The Side Benefit: High Speed Business Process Testing. Once you’ve captured a business process flow electronically, it becomes an asset you can use for other purposes. Like testing. Capture a process once, and automation allows you to run that same process again and again – every time there’s a technology change or upgrade – to detect application defects and make sure every step runs like it should.
Liberate Your Business Analysts. Automated business process discovery is a hot and growing area. Gartner contends that more than 80% of companies are still doing manual process discovery – so there’s a good chance your business can benefit from this new technology. Automation results in much more accurate, always up-to-date process maps, deeper process understanding, and frees your business analysts to perform their real job: process optimization.
And with today’s simple but sophisticated user interfaces and cloud-based deployment, there’s no reason you can’t get up and running quickly with automation.” [source: http://www.cio.com/ by Erin Burke]
