Through deep analysis of program connections, data operations, batch jobs and transactions, the iSAT automatically develops maps of each application entry point.  By mapping these process follows onto the business functions they support, solution architects, developers and business analysts can see the scope of process flows and their underlying business rules.

The iSAT can associate legacy, future state and industry-standard business process models with application flows.  As such, the business alignment process provides an efficient means to connect system-level business context to well-organized source code artifacts, as in the following example:

  • Level 1 – Claims Processing
    • Level 2 – Claims Submissions
      • Level 3 – Member Validation
      • Level 3 – Procedure Eligibility
      • Level 3 – Coverage Calculation

With the declining number of subject matter experts straining the effectiveness of both legacy application management and modernization programs, the business alignment process also represents an efficient means of embedding application expertise within the iSAT.

Process Mapping Options

  • Current State – How the legacy application maps to current business processes
  • Future State – How the legacy application maps to future state business processes
  • Industry Model – How the legacy application maps to a proprietary or standard industry model
