The GeneXus BPM Suite is a set of tools that enable us to apply the BPM method, offering a tool for each stage in the BPM cycle.
This stage focuses on designing the business process. This stage may be done in GeneXus using the Business Process Diagram object or the GeneXus Business Process Modeler tool that is installed, free of charge, independent from GeneXus.
To learn how to start modeling a process refer to Getting Started: Modeling a business process.
Note: If you already have business processes developed with another tool and want to integrate them to GeneXus, they must be of the XPDL type. To include them we offer the IDE option Import From XPDL. It is also possible to export the GX diagrams in XPDL format. To learn how to do it refer to here.
Once the business processes are modeled we must make them automatic to advance with the BPM cycle. To accomplish this we develop the GeneXus objects that will later be included in the process.
Execution and monitoring
This stage focuses on the execution and monitoring of the process designed, to validate whether it behaves as expected, and to assess if it is necessary to optimize it. Here, again, we will use GeneXus, since it includes the GXflow client to this end. This client includes both the web mode and Smart Devices.
