Jim Sinur, Distinguished Analyst from Gartner notes: “Business Process Analysis (BPA)
technologies really help business professionals optimize their business processes. Visualizing the
business process goes a long way toward identifying bottlenecks, value streams, administrative tasks to
automate, and opportunities for reducing error cycles. The resulting models can be used as universal
communication tools for business users, systems integrators (SIs), developers and outsourcers. Business
Process Management (BPM) technologies allow for the translation of the business models completed in
BPA tools into reality while keeping them sharp through continuous feed back and inline optimization.
BPA and BPM are extremely complementary technologies and will help clients leverage business
