Has anyone used Nimbus (TIBCO) for process mapping? 
I've recently come across a BA job which requires the use of Nimbus process mapping software. I'd not come across this until now and had always used Visio but have watched a video demo on their website. It seems to be more dynamic than Visio and allows you to record information behind each process in a database and also to 'drill down' to sub process. Google doesn't return many results on this software at all though so I was just wondering how commonly used it is? For anyone who has used it, what are its strengths and weaknesses and where can I learn more about it? Thanks

Thanks.

It seems strange that nobody has used this software as when I demo'd it, it's actually quite good and has been around for a long time.  It's basically more dynamic than Visio, allowing you to 'drop down'/connect one process to another and it also lets you store information alongside each activity (e.g. stakeholders involved in that activity).  You can also 'play' the process with details of the inputs/outputs so it is like an interactive visio.  The only downside that I can see is that it restricts you to using their standard 'shapes' (basically all rectangle process boxes with no decisions) but I think there may also be the ability to include BPMN diagrams.

I have used Nimbus Control extensively, it is a very good system for process mapping, I wouldn't be without it especially for a large company, you can attach links to documents, ie links to user guides or even training material, for me its a must if you are process mapping an entire companies processes.  You can use it as a repository for all a companies documents and add them into the process map as appropriate so is excellent as a training aid.

Is Agile a reason to avoid documentation? I bet this question shows up again and again while working with product requirements. On one side, we have got long specifications, complicated diagrams, mystical technical design, too many prototypes and pretty obvious for engineers user guides (do we really need so much?). On the other side, can we actual...
