The platform that's changing what business can do
Papyrus Software is made for business enablement – no matter what your business is. It’s a powerful platform that’s open to all types of business applications. That means many solutions to choose from, built for all kinds of jobs. The Papyrus Business Designer lets you create your own custom business value streams. You can define business processes and business communication the way you need.
The Papyrus Platform is radically different in each and every aspect
It is built from a single source and offers a business architecture based methodology – not just an 'open' architecture – for process management that automatically discovers and documents any type of user interactive process performed on the entity models. The resulting transparency enables process improvement by user adaptation. Business users can create mission critical processes that link people, information, and applications across geographically distributed, organizational functions. The platform empowers the process owner to fulfill the strategic goals of the executive.
Business experts can now rapidly model, measure, and change processes independent of underlying application logic. Papyrus does not require additional separate rule engines or collaborative mapping layers to enable processes to dynamically adapt to changing business needs. The collaborative Papyrus Platform approach does not restrict the business users in their execution but guides them by the process definitions, monitored by business rules and measured by goal fulfillment without the need for Eclipse based integration between the different product fragments of one or multiple software vendors. Papyrus provides seamless consolidation of freely-definable process, rules, GUI, forms, inbound and outbound content objects.
Key Features of the Papyrus Platform
Process Analysis by the Executive: Papyrus Converse and Papyrus Adaptive Case Management enable the executive to define the processes in terms of owners and their goals. Flowcharts are used for process dependencies only and not for step by step activities. Activities are auto-discovered and improved or adapted using the auto-documentation functionality of the platform.
Modeling by Business users: Papyrus WebRepository enables the modeling of data and content entities that can be used by business users to assemble collaborative processes from application specific framework libraries. The object-relational database uniquely supports the definition of semantic relationship models.
Business Rules: Papyrus provides Natural Language Rule (NLR) definition for business users that can be executed in the process environment directly and reused as templates in any process. Standalone rule engine servers that have to be data-integrated by means of SOA are not required.
Business Goals: Structured processes without goals that only need execution monitoring are an unnecessary simplification. Rather than the additional complexity of adding Business Activity Monitoring, Papyrus presents and monitors goal achievement throughout the process execution.
Process management: Processes in the Papyrus Platform are collaborative activities performed on architecture data models and content. State/event chains of execution are used rather than rigid flowcharts. Event driven diagrams are used to present process, rule and goal dependencies.
User Engagement and Collaboration: Process management is in most products a very limited routing of data entry forms from user to user by means of a flowchart. Ajax and FLEX do not improve that, but make user interaction more difficult to develop and maintain. Papyrus EYE allows the user-definition of PC-GUI like, role-specific user interfaces for the browser, mobile and thick-client.
Social Networking: Papyrus offers RIA, chat, wikis, blogging, user configurable GUI presentation, social interaction with coworkers, all under control of the role/policy authorization and in CONTEXT with the process.
Portal applications: Process and content management vendors have been purchasing portal software vendors in a try to provide what ISIS Papyrus offers totally consolidated and out of the box: A powerful, in-built portal server, that does not require or enable Java programming but is managed through the version controlled WebRepository.
Monitoring and Auditing: Management can continuously measure key performance indicators for process execution and business goal achievement. Auditing can be performed in real-time using boundary rules or by post-verification of archived process tasks.
Reporting & Optimization: The tightly integrated Application Analyzer provides real-time visualization of system details, such as resource utilization, server load, memory consumption, network load, detailed component response times and gathering of historical trace and log information in a central system facility.
Execution: The node-kernel program of the ISIS Papyrus Platform is a consolidated, distributed object-relational database and transaction engine with peer-to-peer communication. That not only enables n-tier application structures but moreover server clustering designed to handle extremely high-volume, mission-critical transactions across multiple servers.
Content Services: Most process management products are content blind and most content products have no or limited process capability. While Papyrus uniquely consolidates both, it also provides consolidated content delivery of any type and format, through all channels: print/mail, fax, email, web, mobile.
Inbound content: Papyrus is uniquely consolidated with its ability to capture ALL incoming content, perform machine learning classification, extract and validate business data, and execute automated business responses and initiate straight-through or user-interactive processes.
Outbound content: Papyrus provides document design and digital Asset Management for all content types with the relevant administration workflows to create high-quality marketing and business content that can be delivered through all channels, such as print/mail, fax, email, web, or mobile messaging.
Archiving: The Papyrus Platform can provide the ability to spread long-term, securely encrypted archiving with digital signature across any number of archive servers or link to most existing archive systems for content storage.
Project Management and Deployment: The Papyrus WebRepository is the central management component that also handles all asset version control, project management and deployment processes. It also acts as a service registry (also UDDI) and user/role directory (supporting LDAP). Papyrus was designed and built around the central repository from the outset.
Infrastructure: The Papyrus Platform software components can be installed on-premise on 11 operating systems, in the private and public cloud, or in a hybrid way. The complete and encompassing application environment not only reduces the technology stack and associated cost but also provides complete system and network monitoring.
Integration: Papyrus consolidates the functions of process, content and customer communications management without complex SOA functionality, but provides SOA and other interfaces to integrate with existing application, devices and databases.
Watch: Enterprise Application Integration
Tenancy: Papyrus supports the physical separation by dedicated domains per tenant and the logical separation of tenants. Common components can be defined in the central domain and deployed to the separate tenant domains. A strict role, policies and settings concept for each tenant maintains a guaranteed privacy for each tenant.
An orchestration platform scales effectively and sits as an extra connectivity layer on top of your core business applications, systems and infrastructure. It acts as the connector and helps you define a set of streamlined, repeatable and cost-efficient processes that can either run on autopilot or enable ad-hoc decisions by your expert staff without workarounds. Everything will play nicely together and the unified view of all activities, communications and their content leads to a holistic experience that offers transparency to all stakeholders.
