SILVERRUN - Business Architecture Tools

SILVERRUN BPM Business Process Modeler
(DFD Data Flow Diagrammer) -
Tool for Business, Organizational and Technical Process Modeling

The professional SILVERRUN process architecture tools can be run on all Windows platforms and are available in versions for local installations and for floating use in networks.

SILVERRUN BPM Business Process Modeler (formerly: SILVERRUN DFD Data Flow Diagrammer) is a powerful business process modeling tool for documenting and analyzing the workflow as well as for integrating the perspective of business tasks with the enterprise data architecture.

With SILVERRUN BPM Business Process Modeler, you can attach data structures to your information flows so that underlying data is captured with process information and carried through to a conceptual, logical or physical data model.

Additionally, external entities and relationships, or whole data models can be attached to processes, flows and data stores to represent, redesign and manage an entire organization's information and activity infrastructure.

SILVERRUN BPM Business Process Modeler supports enterprise business process modeling with a multi-user online repository. Powerful split and merge mechanisms facilitate dividing a process model into logical sections that allow modelers to design independently and then put their work together.

SILVERRUN BPM Business Process Modeler process tree diagrams present an overview of the hierarchical organization of business processes.
