An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

We are in a period of business and technology transformation demanding that organizations revisit almost everything they do. While most enterprise leaders will readily agree with this statement, many are struggling with a coherent response. The reason is that while there is plenty of press about automation, cloud, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) transforming the enterprise, the starting point for any transformation is much less enticing: you must understand current business processes to transform them.

While the idea of business process modeling and analysis is not new, most traditional approaches have been too heavy-handed to be sustainable and useful for anything other than meeting compliance requirements. As a result, many organizations have turned to low-code and no-code platforms to essentially skip modeling and analysis and go straight to development. While this can be expedient, it often creates challenges with complex business processes that must span multiple systems or where automation is not feasible.

Navvia believes that it has found the right balance between these two points. The company developed its platform with simplicity and ease-of-use in mind — making it readily accessible to non-process specialists such as business executives and IT managers. Moreover, the platform provides governance capabilities and produces procedural documentation using a simple-to-use, yet comprehensive data model that is designed to ensure complete process documentation. Moreover, the same data model captures technical requirements, enabling organizations to rapidly automate processes using their preferred development approach once they have defined their desired future state.
