Business Process Identification
The first step in BPA is identifying the business processes that need automation. This may involve mapping out current workflows and identifying pain points and inefficiencies. Organizations can also identify potential areas for automation by examining their business goals and objectives.
Business Process Analysis: “As Is” and “To Be
Once the processes have been identified, the next step is to analyze them in detail. This involves documenting the “as is” processes and identifying areas for improvement. Organizations can then create a vision of the “to be” processes, outlining how they will operate once automated.
Business Process Modeling and Visualization
Business Process Modeling and Notation (BPMN) is a widely used standard for modeling and visualizing business processes. Using BPMN, organizations can create clear and concise representations of their business processes, helping stakeholders understand them better. BPMN also allows organizations to test and optimize the processes before automation.
Defining System Architecture, Data Structure, and Flows
BPA requires a robust system architecture to ensure that the automated processes run efficiently and effectively. This may involve selecting the appropriate software and hardware, creating the necessary integrations with other systems, and designing the data structures and flows required for automation.
Outlining the Security Requirements and Access Policies
Automation involves using sensitive data, and organizations must ensure that their BPA systems meet security and compliance requirements. This may involve outlining access policies and user permissions, implementing encryption and other security measures, and ensuring that the BPA system integrates with other security systems.
Development of Platforms and Integrations
The final stage of BPA is developing and implementing automated processes. This may involve building custom platforms and integrations that reproduce established business processes or configuring off-the-shelf software solutions to meet the organization’s needs. It is crucial to thoroughly test the automated processes before deployment and provide training and support to users and stakeholders.
