Company Honored With Trend-Setting Award for its Predictive Modeling and Timeline Technology
San Diego, CA – May 20, 2013 – BP Logix, developer of BPM software that accelerates time-to-value, today announced that the company has been recognized by Info-Tech Research Group as an “Innovator” in BPM. In its April 2013 Report: Vendor Landscape: Business Process Management (BPM) Suites,BP Logix was singled out as both a notable performer and winner of the research group’s “Trend-Setter” award. That coveted designation was given based on the predictive modeling and timeline patent of the BP Logix flagship product, Process Director.
The Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape report helps enterprise IT decision-makers identify a short list of vendors to address their IT requirements. As one of only ten vendors selected for the report, including IBM, Oracle, and Pega, BP Logix scored highest as an Exemplary Performer for its Advanced User Interface and Process Timeline™ technology. According to the report, BP Logix also received top honors in advanced features including Advanced Modeling, Ad hoc Workflow, Cloud deployment, Timeline, Usability and Architecture. BP Logix was also recognized as an Innovator whose product strengths provide a competitive advantage to niche market segments.
The report states: “BP Logix is a prime example of a user interface correctly done: its use of drag-and-drop functionality is improved upon by the way it can display the information. You can design in event chain process format, then immediately switch to their patented Timeline format and back again to ensure that processes are triggered and executed in the proper order. The Timeline feature also displays all of the project due dates in relation to each other, and when a due date is missed or the workflow is edited ad hoc by a user, the timeline automatically adjusts and updates itself to reflect the new expected due dates with no additional plug-ins required.”1
According to Stewart Bond, Senior Consulting Analyst with Info-Tech Research Group, “The Timeline feature adds a real-time dimension to BPM. It demonstrates the interdependency of the events within a workflow that is easy to understand for any user. Process Director seeks to automate all aspects of BPM through predictive modeling, which analyzes historical data and creates a context-aware environment that optimizes processes and forms to suit the purpose of the workflow.”
“We are pleased to be included in Info-Tech Research Group’s research and analysis, as the report evaluates the best of the best in BPM and recognizes BP Logix as both an Innovator and Trend-Setter,” stated Jay O’Brien, CEO of BP Logix. “Our recently granted patent for the Process Timeline further demonstrates our commitment to innovation in BPM.”
