Detail-level business architectural modeling involves first creating various views. The selected views derive from the high-level architecture framework. There may be various types of diagrams within each view and an associated visual notation for representing these individual diagrams.
Enterprise Architects have standardized on Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) as the visual modeling notation for capturing and representing detail-level business architecture. BPMN has been evolving for many years and has led to several specification updates from 1.x to 2.x versions.
For this Discussion, identify one significant difference between BPMN 1.x and 2.x. Post a cohesive response that addresses the following:
- How does this difference affect the use of the notation?
- What are its benefits and drawbacks?
- Does this feature affect the user’s dependence on modeling tools? Explain your reasoning.
Be sure to defend and support your opinion, and remember to properly cite your sources according to APA guidelines.
