Integrate your company strategy with the knowledge of business processes to increase its efficiency

XBPR Capitalizes your company’s knowledge

XBPR arises from a holistic and dynamic vision of the organization, with the ability to coordinate decision-making processes and operational activities that have the purpose of creating added value for the company.

XBPR allows you to create software applications without writing any code. This allows a perfect alignment of the information system with business strategies and daily operational needs.


XBPR is a technology developed by BPEng that allows intelligent management of the company, also through the new paradigms dictated by the Internet of Things (IoT), an integral part of the new era of Industry 4.0. By using an integrated graphic tool, XBPR allows to represent, in a formal way, the knowledge of any given domain through the adoption of various levels of computational ontologies, from which it generates software solutions capable of orchestrating processes, people and applications. XBPR is a sMDA (Semantic Model Driven Architecture) framework with which business analysts and / or software analysts can create and maintain integrated business solutions for workflow management, business intelligence, document management, knowledge management, etc., avoiding writing code.


A market leader makes good products, good products do not create market leaders (JC & MH). With XBPR it is possible to increasethe competitive advantage of your company by making processes and organizational quality more efficient. XBPR is an intelligentapplication with an inferential engine making possible to deduce new knowledge by making use of computational ontologies.By adopting XBPR, the customer is the custodian of the knowledge of business processes, and will not depend neither on suppliers norapplications.
Adottando XBPR il cliente altre che ad essere il depositario della conoscenza dei processi aziendali, si mantiene indipendente dai fornitori, dalle applicazioni e dalle persone.


XBPR provides a single point of shared access to the knowledge of business processes and the adoption of semantic methodologiesallows to move directly from strategy to operational execution. Management acquires a decision-making capacity that is consistent withorganizational structures and processes, because it has contextual and reliable data and information. The multifaceted and modulararchitecture of XBPR is based on open standards and can be used in both cloud and different types of platforms.XBPR is an Industry 4.0 ready solution.

Application scenarios


With XBPR it is possible to automate business processes that involve the execution of manual and automatic activities, whichrequire the integration of multiple systems, need to share the flexibility of calculation of an Excel sheet or to structure thecoordination capacity of the mail. XBPR also guarantees the ability to integrate organization charts, function charts, risks /controls, and any other activity that generates added value for the customer.


La soluzione X-GDPR utilizza dei robot software per la standardizzazione e automazione dei processi di analisi e di gestione del GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
Peculiarità che pongono la soluzione proposta non solo come una risposta di adeguamento normativo all'entrata in vigore di una nuova legge, ma anche come una soluzione che interpreta e risolve le crescenti necessità organizzative delle società che vogliono essere competitive .

Key features


Organizations databases created with third-party Business Process Analysis (BPA) tools can be imported into XBPR. Currently it is possible to import AML files (Aris Markup Language); other connectors can be developed on request.


XBPR allows to publish the diagrams making them available through graphical, applicative (workflow) and descriptive (documents) browsing modes.


Execution of processes following the BPMN standard using powerful external workflow engines. Integration of processes, documents, data and applications with the organizational structure of the company, in an environment already compatible with Industry 4.0.


XBPR allows you to navigate business knowledge through the conceptual map of relationships between people, documents, resources, activities, processes, organizational structures and data.


The integrated semantic modeler allows you to edit diagrams imported from third-party BPA tools, create new organizational databases or customize reference databases for a given application domain. The EPC methodology can be extended by the analyst both, in terms of ontological concepts and in terms of relationships, attributes and patterns.


XBPR allows the user to independently create performance indexes (KPI), counting for the composition of SPARQL semantic queries, on an intuitive environment (drag & drop). The results of KPIs can be exported in different formats.


XBPR allows to execute reports both to document company knowledge and to improve and control the execution of workflows; all the documentation produced can be archived in a DMS.


Process digitization can be extended with risk and control management in a flexible way by applying modeling patterns that can be customized according to regulatory and application domain requirements.

How to use XBPR

XBPR combines fully proven methodologies with the most modern semantic technologies to transform the knowledge of business processes into a format that can be directly processed by the computer.


Formalization of the knowledge of business processes (documents, organization charts, function charts, working practices in use, data structures, strategic and regulatory objectives, etc.). Knowledge mapping is supported by a graphic modeler which implements the Event-Driven Process Chain (EPC) methodology; according to customer needs, the methodology can be extended with specific patterns to facilitate and speed up the work of analysts. It is possible to import organizational databases created with other BPA tools.


The result of the first phase is realized with the creation of the base of semantic knowledge, formed by multiple levels of computational ontologies, which represents the business processes both from the organizational point of view and from the IT point of view. Through the graphic modeler and the ontology editor, the analyst can update the data structure, the processes and the organization charts to keep the Information System aligned with the strategic evolution of the company, without needing to foresee software development interventions.


The semantic knowledge base, via the powerful and pervasive XBPR application interfaces, can / must be shared / used by all the application systems involved in the business process. The aim is to guarantee the constant adherence of the Information System to the continuous evolution of the company strategy, the market, technology and legislation.

Our history

Origins and main events of the company

BPEng was founded in 2004 with the main objective of providing a tool that can solve the increasinglycurrent problem concerning the duality between ICT skills and organizational skills, both necessary for anorganizational vision based on businessprocesses. This duality represents an important limit to theindustrial scale adoption of business process analysis / management (BPA / BPM) and Enterprise Architecture (EA) tools, especially for SMEs, because it generates high production costs, sharing and maintaining knowledge.

Right from the start BPEng establishes important market partnerships (2005 - with Banksiel Spa) andresearch (2009 - with ISTC-CNR LOA).The collaboration with the Laboratory of Applied Ontology (FOMI-2005)over time has contributed to give credibility to the pioneering activity of the company, in the field of ontological modeling applied to business processes.

In 2011 BPEng received a FESR funding from the Autonomous Province of Trento equal to € 340,000 for the realization of the ODEC (Ontology-Driven Enterprise Computing) project in collaboration with the LOA Applied Ontology Institute ISTC-CNR of Trento, and the Research Center for Knowledge and Data (KRDB) of the free university of Bolzano. The project closes in 2015 with a reported and approved expenditure of 500,000 euros.

The results of the ODEC project were presented on February 5th 2015 in the conference Ontology-driven enterprise computing: state of the art and concrete experiences organized by BPEng at the Technological Pole of Rovereto with the participation of Eng. Nicola Guarino (ISTC-CNR LOA) and prof. Giancarlo Guizzardi (Free University of Bozen-Bolzano - University of Twente).

By the first months of 2018 the release of XPBR 5.0 is expected, which, among other improvements, provides for the release of the first version of the semantic modeller with the integrated ontology editor.
