Popkin Software, a developer of enterprise modeling tools, and Intalio, Inc., the business process management company, announced a strategic partnership to offer a complete solution for modeling, execution and management of end-to-end transactional business processes throughout the enterprise.

The joint solution integrates Intalio's n|3 Business Process Management System (BPMS) with Popkin's System Architect toolset. The interchange technology for the solution is based on the business process modeling language (BPML) recently released by BPMI.org. Organizations are assured of an end-to-end, standards-based, enterprise-scale process management solution that helps them move one step closer to aligning their technology to their business strategies. "Popkin and Intalio have been collaborating in the development of business process modeling standards within the BPMN (business process modeling notation) working group at the BPMI.org," said Howard Smith, CTO for Computer Science Corporation Europe, and co-chair of BPMI.org. "Rich enterprise process modeling is one of the key applications of the new breed of business process management systems (BPMS). With this alliance process modeling is no longer disconnected from process management. All existing IT assets can be directly leveraged as reusable process assets."

Organizations can use the Intalio-Popkin solution to manage the complete business process lifecycle from design and development of business processes through their implementation, deployment, execution, analysis and optimization. To do this, System Architect will export BPML generated from process models either created using traditional techniques such as IDEF or the newly defined BPMN. The BPML is then fully executable in Intalio n|3 Designer and deployed onto the Intalio n|3 Server. The new solution will be available in early 2Q.
