Lombardi Software, the leader in Business Process Management (BPM) software for Global 2000 companies, today announced that its TeamWorks BPM platform has been awarded “Best commercial Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) application” in the inaugural Eclipse Community Awards. The Lombardi TeamWorks BPM software was honored at an awards ceremony last night on the opening day of EclipseCon 2006.
The Eclipse Community Technology Awards recognize the open source projects and products that are being developed around the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) and developer tools. Technology Award winners were selected by a panel of judges chosen from the Eclipse community.
"We're extremely pleased to recognize the TeamWorks BPM product with the Eclipse Community award for best commercial RCP application," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director, Eclipse Foundation. "Lombardi won for its rich, visionary design that creates a cohesive environment for both business users and developers alike."
TeamWorks is the leading BPM software platform for designing, executing, and improving business processes. The product takes full advantage of Eclipse's numerous user-friendly capabilities, including wizards for building forms, business rules, and a wide variety of reports. Using the robust Eclipse framework, TeamWorks provides industry-leading optimization features that enable Business Analysts to understand and improve process performance from directly within a process diagram. TeamWorks also takes advantage of Eclipse to offer a rich online Help system, the ability to deliver different functionality and "capabilities" based upon the user's skills, and strong inter-operability with thousands of freely and commercially available plug-ins.
“We are proud that TeamWorks has achieved such a prestigious recognition by the Eclipse Foundation,” said Phil Gilbert, Chief Technology Officer at Lombardi. “We were the first pure-play BPM vendor to become a member of the Eclipse Foundation and this award validates our dedication to providing the deepest Eclipse support of any BPM platform on the market.“
