SAP AG has announced the general availability of a cloud-based collaborative process modelling tool in the SAP StreamWork application. The new tool further brings social and collaborative capabilities into business processes and applications.
The on-demand application for collaborative decision-making enables users to track discussions, decisions, related documents and action items, providing them with records of the conversation and work for future reference. Real-time collaboration is enabled, with changes to processes being updated simultaneously for all participants.
Visualisation of the process flow can also be achieved, with the tool supporting the open standard business process model and notation (BPMN). The process model created with this tool can be utilised for documentation and simulation, and can also be translated into automated workflows through tools such as SAP NetWeaver Process Orchestration software.
