Before designing processes, business managers, decision makers or developers need to write down their specifications, this is one of the foundations of the test-driven development.

This step is essential to facilitate the designing and development of the product.

To address this issue, Talend offers a tool that helps you design Business Models, which are non technical views of a business workflow need. This tool helps you to graphically represent your needs regardless of the technical implementation requirements.

Business Models are both available in the Integration perspective of the Talend Studio and from the Business Model Designer page in Talend Administration Center.

With this tool, you can model your flow management needs at a macro level and assign tasks to specific actors.
You can then open, edit or update your business model on the Repository Browser page of Talend Administration Center by selecting the corresponding item in the Repository.

Once you have conceptualized your model, you need to put in place the management processes you have defined.
