Business Process Management (BPM) tools are used for 5 (100%) 14 ratings modelling, optimizing, automating and measuring the business processes. BPMN is a is a standard for business process modeling which provides a graphical representation for specifying business processes in a business process model. This is presented in a Business Process Diagram (BPD), based on a flowcharting technique very similar to activity diagrams from Unified Modeling Language (UML). The primary goal is to provide a standard notation readily understandable by all business stakeholders. These stakeholders include the business analysts who create and refine the processes, the technical developers responsible for implementing them, and the business managers who monitor and manage them.

I studied the list in depth, but the very best BPM tool ist not listed.

How could that be?

I can see the list of BPM softwares available in the market. On what criteria you have mentioned them as the best BPM Softwares? Can you give us more brief, how and why they are the best?

No mention of ARIS in that list, possibly the oldest and most widely used tool which recently received top honors by BARC for its completeness, sophistication, method, notation support and so on. Where was this published, or was is it a list compiled by yourself? Only ARIS Express is listed in the free tools.
