Continuously Discover, Visualize, And Analyze End-To-End Business Processes
Organizations that embrace a culture of continuous transformation invariably have the edge on their competition. These leaders rely on up-to-date, detailed insight to prioritize changes to impactful business processeses. Yet for many organizations, relevant, timely process discovery and documentation remains out of reach.
Organizations that struggle to compete are often limited by their lack of understanding of their current business processes. An enterprise committing to a culture of continuous transformation recognizes goals cannot be achieved without an efficient, scalable process for understanding actual business execution—especially for organizations migrating to S/4HANA and modernizing web applications. Worksoft provides a better way.
Worksoft Analyze® empowers the enterprise with the ability to discover, visualize and generate automation from a business process perspective. By focusing on business processes, Analyze® provides business and IT teams with a common framework for communication and collaboration.
With Worksoft Analyze®, you can:
- Generate detailed process documentation as business users simply do what they already do every day—no disruptive training or programming required
- Create and maintain accurate documentation of actual business processes quickly and eliminate guess work
- Identify the most commonly executed business processes critical to the enterprise
- Transform department-level knowledge of business processes to an enterprise-wide understanding of end-to-end execution
- Accelerate the deployment of new enterprise solutions while avoiding additional risk
How Does It Work?
Business users engage Worksoft Capture™, our unobtrusive, user friendly feature for obtaining process knowledge through the observation of regular end user activity.
Worksoft Analyze® aggregates data from business users, allowing business processes to be shared, automatically producing a rich process report with a readable narrative of actions performed in the UI and field level screens showing the activities.
Communication between the business and IT improves with a common framework and assets ideal for both perspectives. Since the discovery of processes is automated, updates can be performed as often as the business requires. This approach provides an evergreen source of knowledge for business process practice in the enterprise.
Step 1: Discover
With Worksoft Analyze®, capturing business process knowledge is no longer repetitive, cumbersome or inefficient. Business process discovery is performed automatically as part of everyday user activities:
- No charting
- No interviews
- No manual process modeling
Worksoft Analyze® automatically captures and converts current user activities into a comprehensive view of business process variation and practice— across users, departments, and even partnerships—discovery can be as broad or narrow as the enterprise needs.
Step 2: Visualize
After discovery, Worksoft Analyze® automatically generates an advanced flow diagram of every business activity observed and the relationships between them. The Analyze Multi-Variant View uses a Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN)-style diagram to display variations in a business process to easily identify unknown variants and anomalies.
The Worksoft Analyze® interface makes visualizing and browsing enterprise-wide processes intuitive, allowing analysts to quickly address key questions and focus on any areas of concern. Visualizations are based on actual processes captured from actual business users’ activities—not modeled processes or templates.
Most enterprises have compartmentalized knowledge of the true end-to-end business process across the organization. Worksoft Analyze® can easily link these process segments together into complex, multi-variant business processes. This enables analysis across the enterprise, including the automatic generation of process documentation and test automation assets covering the linked end-to-end process.
Step 3: Automate
Worksoft Analyze® performs in-depth analysis of your actual business processes so your business analysts have an easyto-comprehend view of every business process across the enterprise.
The information and screens are formatted into PDF or MS Word documents for use as evidence of workflows, Agile “done done” criteria, or to jumpstart training materials.
Through the combined use of Worksoft Analyze® and Worksoft Capture™, business users become accelerators for transformation by simply performing their normal tasks while the discovery occurs unobtrusively.
The powerful combination of Analyze® and Capture™ produces not only visuals and documentation automatically, it also interrogates each UI object that is part of the process execution, allowing Worksoft Certify® to execute automated tests based on real use cases.
