Holocentric Modeler is a modelling tool for building rich business models about your people, processes and technology and how they interact to produce value.
You can use Holocentric Modeler to model business processes, your technology systems, or you can use it to map the relationships between people, process and technology. At every level of your business, the model becomes like a map that shows where you are, where you want to go, and how to get there.
Because you can flexibly describe and associate “entities”, such as people, processes or systems, you can choose how to apply the modeling tool to your business. Essentially, you can model any item or thing in your business and define relationships between any of these.
Role-based Process Modeling
Holocentric Modeler provides a role-based modelling capability which means that not only can you capture interactions between processes and systems, you can define who is responsible for making each process happen, putting people into models.
Role-based modeling is superior to systems-based modeling approaches, because it is:
- less abstract
- more intuitive
- easier for people to engage and work with models.
If your models have little to do with people, then people will have little to do with your models. A role-based approach is what’s been missing from modeling.
With Holocentric Modeler, you can:
- run simulations – assess the impact of proposed changes
- quantify the benefits of proposed changes
- use meta-modeling capabilities to build your own custom solutions
- apply solution accelerators & solution frameworks for industry specific problems
- integrate with Modelpedia to publish & annotate models online.
Because Modeler separates model content from model presentation, you can render information in different diagram types, such as technical or business diagrams. You can also create reports in Word or Excel, making your model content work even harder for you.
