BPMN stands for Business Process Modeling Notation.

BPMN is an industry standard that provides businesses with the capability of visualizing and communicating their internal business processes and their external business to business processes in a standard manner. Beyond the obvious use of modeling business processes, BPMN has been created with the key goal of creating a bridge between the business process modeling notation (BPMN) and IT-oriented execution languages that will implement the modeled business processes within a business process management system.

This is done by maintaining and supporting a strict internal model that maps the rich set of graphical objects and object attributes of BPMN to executable languages such as the Business Process Execution Language for Webs Services (BPEL4WS) or Business Process Modeling Language (BPML) to support immediate execution of modeled buiness processes.

From the business systems analyst perspective, BPMN is a modeling notation which provides the analyst with a rich graphical notation for modeling business processes, sub-processes, and activities.

Many business analysts use BPMN diagrams instead of UML activity diagrams.

In addition, BPMN is a visual notation used by many of today's business process modeling and management tools.

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
