This BPM.com First Impression examines the new capabilities presented the latest release of BP Logix Process Director, a BPMS industry leader recognized by Gartner, Inc. in the “Magic Quadrant for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites 2015”, with unique capabilities for both Case Management and traditional BPM patterns.

Recently the BPM.com team was provided with a comprehensive demonstration of the latest release, version 4.0, of Process Director from BP Logix. Previously we had the opportunity to explore Process Director 3.0 and also have worked independently with several BP Logix customers. Given this lens on the evolution of Process Director, today recognized by analysts as one of the top tier market leaders, we have a unique appreciation for both its current capabilities and differentiating features, as well as a unique appreciation of the critical milestones presented with this release.

What continues to set Process Director apart from its BPM and Case Management software competitors is the Process TimelineTM — an executable process model that presents a Gantt chart oriented notation. The Process Timeline captures time as a formal process dimension in ways not possible with other models. For example, although both BPMN and CMMN support “timer” events for setting deadlines and triggers, what they cannot do is capture – in any formal way – either elapsed time nor anticipated impact on completion time resulting from unplanned events.
