Model and Diagram Translation
The BPM-X© Converter tool translates models and diagrams between different tools, formats and standards. The Converter tool is based of the BPM-X© model exchange bus using plug-in adapters to connect to tools and repositories. It uses an object-based mapping together with a pattern-based transformation to convert between very different constructs and concepts. BPM-X© establishes a clever exchange and translation of model and meta-data including the graphical information like diagrams and viewpoints for all the different modeling languages (EPC, BPMN, ...) and frameworks (DoDAF, NAF, Zachmann, ArchiMate, ...).
Build an integrated enterprise management landscape
Company acquisitions and mergers, reorganizations, streamlining and harmonizing of business processes and the need for more agile IT support of the business typically trigger requirements for enterprise management tool landscapes.
In our global economy business challenges urge companies to be more dynamic and flexible. Structural changes within the company and the need for an optimization of the IT support of business lines create a complicated tool landscape.
The BPM-X software product suite is especially designed to satisfy a growing demand for efficient IT solutions in such scenarios.
BPM-X offers a unique solution that goes far beyond any ETL (extract, transform and load) or standard EAI-based (enterprise application integration) approach.

Use cases focused with the Universal Translator
If existing tools need to be replaced or data have to be reused or published by alternative products, using BPM-X provides a fast, safe and cost-efficient way for data migration. Model-, master-, and meta-data or diagrams from any specific information source or tool are converted into the desired destination formats.
In the past, customers have repeatedly been requesting a more cost-efficient alternative to the traditional, manual recapturing or scripting for the exchange of data between different formats. BPM-X is our highly cost-effective answer to these requests. BPM-X is capable of handling any size of project in terms of the number of templates, models, objects, shapes, and data like attributes or properties. With a high success rate existing data are available in new formats using the BPM-X Converter transformation technology.
BPM-X is a new kind of integration software specialized in model data and diagram graphics translation and exchange. It offers seamless interoperability between systems with typically non-transactional data for a variety of tools, formats, and industry standards.
A uni-directional or bi-directional integration establishes a productive collaboration of business and IT teams within tightly integrated environments. This includes a manifold of tool and repository data sources from domains like EA (enterprise architecture), BPA (business process analysis), BPMS (business process management suites), GRC (governance, risk and compliance), ERP (enterprise resource planning), data and software design, simulation, test management, CMDBs and others.
