IT system usage matrix reports

BPMN 2.0 process diagrams and Event-driven process chains (EPC) can attach IT systems information to a task. With BPMN, those IT systems can be tagged as an 'Input' or an 'Output'.

The IT system usage matrix reports creates an assignment matrix that shows which IT systems data is read from during an activity, and which IT system data is written to. You can choose whether the assignments refer to diagrams or roles. The report also includes IT systems that are linked as dictionary entries from a custom defined attribute.

This section explains how to generate IT system usage matrix reports for a BPMN 2.0 process diagram. These steps also work for Event-driven process chain (EPC) diagrams.
