How to Draw Business Process Diagrams
with RapidDraw Interface

Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is a set of standard symbols that allow you to create a graphical view of a business process. The symbols were developed to help users develop standard, unified structure of processes, and any messages shared between these processes.

As the business world becomes more complex, so must the processes that keep it running. What′s more, with more participants involved in the running of a business, both from inside and out, it′s important we have a unified modeling technique that can handle the interaction between these processes. BPMN is a visual tool for businesses and business process implementers. A critical focus of BPMN is that it is seen as critical for business users to easily read and understand business process diagrams.

BPMN is a process-oriented approach to modeling of systems; this sets it apart from UML which has a more object-oriented approach. With the addition of BPMN to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users have the capability of using either BPMN or UML to describe a process, depending on their needs.

Cisco Network Templates →

A network diagram is used to depict the topology of a computer network or, talking more broadly, any telecommunications network in general. In order for a computer network diagram to be understandable, clearly identifiable icons must be used for each network appliance. Cisco network templates, also called Network Topology Icons, is a brand of symbols developed and used by Cisco. Since Cisco Systems is the largest networking company in the world, it's list of networking symbols is widely recognized and exhaustive. The diagram of the ISG network topology diagram illustrates the Cisco Intelligent Services Gateway. Since Cicso company offers service providers a possibility to provide control of state and resources in a broadband network, network architects and engineers need some facilities to create ISG topology diagrams.This Cisco ISG network diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using its solution for Cisco network diagrams. The vector library of this solution comprises over 500 icons of Cisco hardware and accessories. They can be used to design LAN, WAN, ISG and other Cisco equipped network diagrams.Cisco Network Templates

Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data. This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type.
