AuraPortal has been distinguished with great advantage over its competitors by Ovum in its Decision Matrix report and by other renowned analyst firms.
Business Process Management tools generally offer as an additional mechanism the possibility to perform 'simulations', i.e., to execute the processes virtually in imaginary scenarios in order to understand and quantify any circumstances that affect their execution. These simulations should reveal bottlenecks, overloads, unequal distribution of workloads, excessive times, etc.
There are two non-exclusive ways to conduct simulations:
- Statistical Simulation, this is the most common but also the less reliable.
- Real Simulation, much more reliable. The BPM tool allows instant modifications to be made to the design of the processes and these modifications can be executed immediately, with no need for programming, both in real and imaginary environments.
This characteristic, which is generally unavailable in other BPM tools, forms part of AuraPortal.
BPM suites typically require the intervention, in varying degrees, of programmers or technical experts to incorporate modifications in the design of the processes, which makes it impossible to carry out tests of each modification on the fly.
With Real Simulation, the results obtained are a true reflection of what will actually happen when the process is executed in a real production environment, and everything can be tested in advance, safely and with maximum accuracy. This Simulation gives 100% assurance that what has been modeled is exactly what will be executed.
