New Cloud-based Software Automates Business Process Discovery Across Enterprise Landscapes
DALLAS – April 28, 2015 – Worksoft®, a leading global provider of automation software for business process discovery and validation, today announced the general availability of Worksoft Analyze®, a new cloud-based offering that enables automated business process discovery, analytics and document generation across enterprise applications.
As companies transform into increasingly agile and customer-centric organizations, business process optimization has become more important than ever before. Unfortunately many companies struggle with the first step: Gaining an accurate end-to-end view across their business processes from the business user’s perspective.
“As organizations seek to get a handle on the complexities of their business process quality and execution, platforms for managing process validation and analytics become ‘must have’ software environments to sustain core corporate operations,” said Melinda Ballou, program director for IDC’s Application Lifecycle Management and Executive Strategies service. “Today, processes and applications change fast – and to manage that change, companies first need to understand their processes, their variations, and key related metrics.”
Typically, mapping business processes is a manual effort involving hundreds of thousands of dollars in consulting services and business disruption due to extensive interviews. Worksoft Analyze automates this analysis for a full end-to-end view of the process and key metrics in a fraction of the time and price without business disruption.
Worksoft Analyze helps enterprises:
- Discover processes across the business automatically, without spending thousands of dollars on expensive and business disrupting interviews. This is accomplished as Worksoft Analyze captures business processes as performed by business users in their enterprise systems.
- Visualize end-to-end business processes across organizational silos, including the impact of the process on the enterprise. Worksoft Analyze automatically creates documentation for compliance, audit, and training purposes, including business flow diagrams with heat maps and process variations, as well as process steps with screen captures.
- Analyze and prioritize investment in process improvement initiatives with built-in analytics identifying bottlenecks, variances, and distribution of process instances.
“Worksoft Analyze offers an in-depth view into enterprise business processes that is unparalleled in the industry. Only Worksoft offers the combination of business process analytics and validation, substantially reducing the time-to-realization for projects and locking-in high quality execution,” said Jim Kent, chief executive officer, Worksoft. “With this new cloud-based offering, capturing process knowledge and gaining insight into ERP business processes is easy and efficient.”
For current customers of Worksoft Certify®, the industry’s top-ranked solution for automated business process validation, Worksoft Analyze offers additional benefits. An automation portfolio of business processes already captured in Worksoft Certify can be visualized as process flow diagrams in Worksoft Analyze. Conversely, every business process captured in Worksoft Analyze can be used as a basis for automated business process validation and functional testing in Worksoft Certify.
