Documenting ALM processes 

I've been tasked documenting our development lifecycle from dev to prod to determine holes where we can use a random ALM tool to assist with audit control.  While it's easy document these processes in words and "simple" flow charts, i'm struggling to come up with a "modern" way/chart/diagram to indicate multiple teams using different repositories (SourceSave, Clearcase, Subversion, etc) to house their code and do their builds while going to the same dev/test/prod environment.  Any suggestions or references that may assist me?

Are you trying to just document business processes? Or are you trying to capture details about how the business processes are implemented and what solutions are in place? Based on your discussion around repositories and such, it sounds more like the latter.

If you are trying to do more than just capture business processes, using something like Archimate ( is a good option. It is an enterprise architecture modeling framework you can represent business, information and technology artifacts and how they support processes in fairly straightforward diagrams. Wikipedia has a good example of how to use the different layers in a single diagram:
