Bangalore, Karnataka, India, 2008/12/12 - Skelta launches BPM.NET 2009, incorporates the serious BPM users’ wish list through its distinctive Forms Designer feature, enhanced Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) and KPI’s, enhanced Security for dynamic collaboration on workflows.
The BPM arena is currently inundated with high investment BPM solutions which run the risk of failure due to complex, process centric implementations that keep the user at its periphery. There is a real and immediate need for BPM software that will allow organizations to stagger their BPM implementations, rapidly scaling up as the need arises and also bring tangible business impact through people centric processes.
Skelta's new release Skelta BPM.NET 2009, addresses this glaring lacuna with its loaded platform for efficient process modeling, quick execution and interoperability that empowers businesses to rapidly build integrated business applications. With its strong people centric framework, Skelta BPM.NET 2009 provides a contextual platform for all steps in an organization's process including InfoPath forms, Office documents, SharePoint portal usage, system activities, human tasks, approvals, business and conditional rules, and transactions with line of business systems. Skelta BPM.NET 2009 approaches BPM with an innovative perspective and delivers a set of tools that provide end-to-end business visibility for pre-emptive business process modeling, extreme agility and a code free implementation environment for rapid roll-outs.
The product’s new release incorporates the serious BPM user’s wish list through its distinctive Forms Designer feature, enhanced Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) and KPI’s, comprehensive Security for dynamic collaboration on workflows, adapters for SAP and BizTalk that leverage existing IT investments and object access for re-usable components that eliminate the need for complex coding.
Skelta’s BAM tool, a resident feature of the BPM product, raises the bar on productivity management in the new release. Its Business Intelligence capabilities provide users with several out-of-the-box reports and activity monitoring views while permitting users to configure Data Points and KPIs for actionable Auto Alerts via email.
Skelta BPM.NET 2009 also features a powerful new Forms Designer. Customized Forms are integral to processes and often initiate organizational workflows. However, the serious BPM user has always felt the lack of a user-friendly forms designer for rapidly building GUIs and associating created forms with processes. Skelta’s native Forms Designer is a powerful tool that addresses this very need.
Further, Skelta BPM.NET 2009’s enhanced security features offer users a comprehensive, extendable, enterprise level security infrastructure for even itemized levels of participation while its SOA functionality facilitates reusability of existing .NET objects by enabling them to be directly consumed in the processes without any modifications, thus avoiding the need to write custom workflow activities. Skelta BPM.NET 2009’s ‘Lists’ feature is an embeddable data repository for storing forms data wherein end-users can create their own lists based on Forms.
As with the earlier release, Skelta BPM.NET 2009 also retains its unique embeddable capabilities to facilitate application integration (OEM Model) and continues to support hosted third party applications (Hosted Model).
Speaking on the Skelta BPM.NET 2009 release, Skelta CEO Sanjay Shah said, “Skelta BPM.NET 2009 delivers on our commitment to provide a powerful, customer centric BPM platform for rapid application development. With differentiators such as our one of a kind Forms Designer and strong BAM tool, we are confident that our product will have a profound impact in the BPM space and enable organizations to bring in efficiency into their business processes”.
