The Metastorm ProVision® enterprise modeling suite provides end-to-end process modeling capabilities, allowing organizations to model and improve their processes, assets and organizational responsibilities under one common framework. For example, a pharmaceutical manufacturer can use Metastorm ProVision® to understand the relation of processes that span across silos and multiple organizations.
