Version 7.6 of Metastorm' s business process management (BPM) software suite expands to a shared services platform, including extended support for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and document libraries; enhancements to the Metastorm BPM client for Microsoft Office 2007; business activity monitoring (BAM) on Windows Vista; new user-configurable reporting capabilities; and support for advanced process simulation and analysis within Metastorm BPM that directly utilizes Metastorm ProVision.
“This latest release of Metastorm BPM strengthens our use of Microsoft desktop technologies to deliver greater ease of use to process participants, and to support faster deployment and user acceptance of BPM within organizations that standardize on Microsoft productivity applications such as Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Office 2007,” says Greg Carter, VP of development and CTO, Metastorm. “We continue to make progress toward our vision of unifying our applications on a common technology platform—Metastorm Enterprise—that will allow customers to benefit from shared services and shared data throughout their strategy, analysis, and execution efforts. By incorporating the powerful simulation capabilities of Metastorm ProVision, a rich business process analysis tool, directly into the Metastorm BPM suite, we are providing our customers with more advanced ways to realize frequent and ongoing process improvements.”
According to Mike Thompson, BPM practice director at U.K.-based research organization Butler Group , Metastorm is the first vendor to focus on bringing enterprise architecture, business process analysis, and business process management capabilities together on a common platform. “The incorporation of the Metastorm ProVision simulation engine running within Metastorm BPM in this new release provides one of the strongest simulation and analysis capabilities available in a single BPMS today," says Thompson.
