Huntington Beach, CA, United States, 2010/12/14 - Tasica Workflow Server, the no-code, human-centric workflow engine that enables electronic forms routing for self-centric workflow applications, now provides tighter integration with eforms for IBM Forms 4.0.
Alphalogix, an Independent Software Vendor and IBM Premier Business Partner, announced today that their Tasica Workflow Server version 3.4.1 offers new enhancements that integrate with IBM’s recent update to its electronic forms offering, IBM Forms 4.0. Recently, IBM signed an OEM agreement with Alphalogix to sell the Alphalogix product bundled with IBM Forms in a new IBM sku number called IBM Forms with Workflow. The Tasica Workflow Server 3.4.1 now offers several enhancements including tighter integration with electronic forms and electronic form parts produced in the new IBM Forms 4.0 as well as faster installation performance.
Tasica Workflow is the workflow engine in IBM Forms with Workflow, IBM's core eform and process automation offering that was released in September of this year. In the combined offering, users of all skill levels can easily apply business logic and decisions to dynamic electronic forms in a highly graphical design environment requiring no programming. Designers can build self-service applications for a web or portal environments making it easy for businesses to customize web experiences for their customers or employees. IBM now sells IBM Forms with Workflow to their clients in addition to IBM Forms. IBM Forms 4.0 with Workflow is expected to be released before the end of 2010.
Tasica Workflow also allows for easy integration into enterprise portal environments including IBM WebSphere Portal enabling businesses to view, submit and manage their electronic forms and workflow processes along side all of their corporate information in a single point of access. Customization of role-based portal experiences comes naturally as businesses are able to use Tasica Workflow to create, manage and control applications for specific departments, employees, partners and customers.
IBM's new update to IBM Forms 4.0 helps drive IBM's smarter planet, smarter work and exceptional web experiences initiatives by adding a modern look and feel, lower total cost of ownership and support for new technology and platforms. New electronic forms features include Web 2.0 form experiences, reusable forms parts across multiple forms, improved web services support and added platform support including Apple's iPad for its WebForm Server to its dynamic electronic forms.
According to IDC, the process automation market is significantly growing at the rate of $2.5B through 2015. This, coupled with Gartner research demonstrating that electronic forms adoption will be mainstream in two years, shows how businesses are increasingly assessing their “green” resources and finding that paper reduction initiatives are easy way to reduce costs and improve their customer, partner and employee experiences with their operations. By adding in effective process automation, businesses are finding that accurate data collection and exchange can be accomplished, without duplicate human data entry and risk of lost action items or critical data.
In November, Alphalogix announced Tasica Workflow 3.4, adding robust workflow capabilities including web services support, document repository support including IBM Lotus Quickr and full support of HTML forms, while keeping consistent with its ease of use for users of all skill levels.
