Business process Integration refers to a business model wherein an acceptable business process model is defined through the specifications of events, sequence, hierarchy, logic of execution and the information pathways between systems, within the same enterprise or various interconnected enterprises.

 

A Way to Bridge Business Processes

It is an excellent feat within the business process integration to come up with a way to bridge the business process embedded within an application with the process of another application. The linked business processes are defined concerning the Workflows; the element of the solution is then brought regarding human actors. These BPI solutions render automation to the existing system and are also effective in managing the business processes which undergird those systems. BPI helps the enterprise in preserving their legacy systems’ investments so that they could avoid the cost of writing another code for functionality replication.

 

Need for BPI

Enterprises strive to synchronous their internal processes and to also bring connectivity to external processes, like supply and customer related processes. For instance, BPI could be had by linking processes of marketing, sales, and purchases with those of accounting and support. Through automation, enterprises would be readily equipped to drive new business.

 

Pathway for Ensuring Effective BPI Solutions

 

Process Identification → Documentation → Mapping

Process identification is usually the first step that renders efficacy to BPI implementation. You can do that with putting the tools of Business Process Mapping to good use. These tools help in demonstrating typical functions by using words and visuals. Among various tools, the most popular BPM tool is process mapping software which indicates the ability of the enterprise to report their existing processes and will also tell you the processes’ efficacy.

 

BPM software will also equip you with process modeling ability whereby you can see, in real-time, the repercussions of the suggested modifications to the existing processes.

 

Mapping tools will assist the enterprises in automating their existing processes and incorporating them across the whole business.

 

Planning Through Modelling

Clients are then helped with process modeling to observe the implementation of the proposed changes to the system. The process owners will be able to see the loopholes in their processes. So, hypothetical implementation of reforms is provided so that practical solutions are achieved.

 

Design, Implementation, and Management

The design and subsequent execution of the BPI make the data duplication in different systems to be futile, and so enhances the business operation’s efficiency. Business Process Integration can save enterprises both their time and money. For instance, the BPI could build a relationship between the sales and invoice systems within an enterprise. There are cases where these relationships are reciprocal, implying that a billing specialist could access sales data and the salesperson can access the billing data.

 

Optimizing Interoperability between Organisations through BPI

 

Business Process Integration becomes crucial when corporations are seeking interoperability between multiple organizations (for instance, multinational corporations). BPI streamlines operations across a different organization through process automation and systems integration. BPI is usually achieved through models integration of organizations’ process. However, severe delicacy is involved in this model integration, and only skilled and experienced designers can achieve it especially when there is an incompatibility between the business processes of the organizations. These designers are experts in taking into consideration the collaborative scenarios in which autonomous and distribution partners are engaged. The challenging situation arises where the private processes are not compatible with each other, or they do not have support systems.

Following are three types of BPIs that ensure synchronous business processes:

  1. Process Trigger

Activity in a particular system will trigger a process in the Business Process Management.

  1. Pull

This involves automatic transference of information from any particular system to the BPM, thereby allowing the various process users to access it.

  1. Push

Push is where the data is transferred from the BPM to another system. For instance, a process is a recruitment so that the HRM system could be transferred with the selected candidate’s information.
