Appian BPMN 2.0 Importer/Exporter


Crystal System’s BPMN 2.0 Importer/Exporter tool was made to offer a solution to the business to transform a process from a BPMN tool into an Appian process and vice versa. 

In case of import: Designers will see the new process diagram after importing a small app that contains the transformed XML file.

In case of export: Designers will need to provide the XML of the Appian process model to the app, then he will be able to download the diagram in the BPMN 2.0 format.

The application tool transforms the BPMN 2.0 specific nodes into Appian nodes, creating a clear process.  It comes with a friendly user interface, multi-language support and a lot of BPMN 2.0 nodes supported. The tool recognizes the main language of the of BPMN 2.0 process and keeps the same language of the nodes. The same applies in case of export from Appian to BPMN 2.0.
