AgilePoint iBPMSAgilePoint, een toonaangevende leverancier van responsieve BPM software, maakt bekend dat zij is opgenomen door Gartner in het nieuwe “Magic Quadrant for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites 2015 (iBPMS)″ (Gartner, Inc. “Magic Quadrant for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites (iBPMS) ″ by R. Dunie, et al, 3/18/15).

Zie hieronder het Engelstalige persbericht:

According to the report, “intelligent business process management suites compress the observation-to-action-to-outcome cycle, and help business transformation leaders, business process directors and solution architects establish a fluid capability to handle big change. The iBPMS market is the natural evolution of the earlier BPMS market, adding more emphasis on support for greater system and human intelligence within business processes.” The report positions 15 that are focused on the iBPMS space.

iBPMS platforms enable the rapid development of cross-functional business applications that connect disparate systems, people, and content, driving productivity across enterprises and organizations. As the report states, “By incorporating intelligent business operations (IBO) technologies — such as monitoring and alerting tools, predictive and prescriptive analytics, complex-event processing (CEP), social media and mobile devices — into the process orchestration, process participants have better real-time situation awareness and can tailor their response most appropriately to emerging business threats and opportunities.”

Jesse Shiah, CEO of AgilePoint, commented, “AgilePoint is focused on helping its customers adapt to the evolving requirements of cloud-era computing by enabling the rapid development of business applications that are responsive to changing business and technology conditions.  We are pleased to be positioned in the report.”

Agilepoint BPMSLow-code BPM leader’s CEO compares looming legacy-code problem to Y2K crisis

AgilePoint, the global leader in Responsive Application Platform software (RAP), chose Gartner’s ITxpo 2014 in Orlando, Florida, as an opportunity to highlight the application-modernization problem facing today’s organizations, which, according to AgilePoint’s CEO, Jesse Shiah, requires the same level of attention and urgency as the Y2K crisis.

In an industry-day session, Shiah explained the traditional methodology used by organizations to connect and fill gaps between disparate line-of-business applications:  “The traditional software development paradigm,” stated Shiah, “creates rigid, point-to-point connectivity that has to be continuously maintained as processes evolve and application versions change.” Looking beyond the mere maintenance of these applications, though, Shiah underscored the enormous challenge of modernizing applications for the cloud, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Shiah,

“Some organizations have thousands of these types of apps, but given the method by which they were created, modernizing them is expensive. Many IT departments simply don’t have the resources for mass conversion initiatives, and, instead, have to focus on just a few of the most important projects.  The first steps to application modernization,”  “are to stop creating these types of applications and begin creating applications that are much less likely to become legacy.”

As a solution to the problem, Shiah prescribed AgilePoint’s Responsive Application Platform (RAP), a technology that facilitates integrations across line-of-business apps via a 100-percent services-oriented architecture; a metadata abstraction framework that enables non-programmers to manipulate complex, coded objects; and a model driven approach that facilitates the design and deployment of responsive applications.

“With RAP, AgilePoint apps are the connectivity between other systems, and they’re self-adaptive to process changes and to version upgrades—everything from SharePoint and Office 365 to CRMs, SAP, and financial systems.”


AgilePoint was recently recognized by Forrester as a leader in the low-code BPM space and by CIO Review magazine as a top 100 Microsoft Solutions Provider. AgilePoint’s Responsive Application Platformoffers productivity breakthroughs with enterprise-class robustness and scalability. AgilePoint supports flexible deployment options for on-premise, cloud-based BPM, PaaS, and hybrid installations. AgilePoint, likewise, enables enterprise BPM for Microsoft SharePoint, Office 365, Dynamics CRM, and SalesForce.
