Abstract

The selection of a business process modeling tool is not new, but nowadays much more complicated than in the past. The reasons for this lie in the necessary consideration of a whole business process management (BPM) approach. After a short introduction, this paper gives an overview about the diverse aspects of BPM-activities and provides an analysis of available evaluation approaches for business process modeling tools. Furthermore, we want to concentrate on an empirical analysis of available modeling tools. This evaluation was executed under consideration of the requirements for a BPM-approach. The kind of investigated tools consider open source tools as well as commercial tool approaches.
