Savvion Named a Leader in Analyst Firm's BPMS "Magic Quadrant"

Independent IT Analyst Firm Places Savvion in Leader’s Quadrant Based on

Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

SANTA CLARA, Calif. —  Savvion®, the trailblazing business process management software (BPM) company, announced today that it has  been positioned as a BPMS leader in Gartner Inc.’s report, “Magic Quadrant for Business Process Management Suites”, co-authored by Janelle B. Hill, Michele Cantara, Marc Kerremans, Daryl C. Plummer, and published on February 18, 2009.

According to the new report, “The 2009 Magic Quadrant depicts the relative strengths of the top 22 vendors offering multiregional, cross-industry business process management suites (BPMSs) that interest Gartner clients and nonclients the most…The position of vendors in the 2009 BPMS Magic Quadrant has changed more than usual, because we have altered one of the key evaluation criteria from product capabilities to four use cases that the products support:
•    Implementation of an industry- or company-specific process composition
•    Support for a continuous process improvement mentality
•    A business transformation initiative
•    Redesign for a process-based service-oriented architecture (SOA)”

The report continues, “Leaders offer products and services that best enable all of the use cases and have customer references for each. These vendors relentlessly focus on increasing the participation of business roles in process improvement efforts by enabling explicit, model-driven approaches, rather than traditional coding. Leaders' products and services especially focus on business process analysts working alongside process owners to transform processes. They enable the highest level of collaboration among business and IT professionals, from the design and modeling phase through execution and optimization.”

“We are honored that Gartner has chosen to recognize Savvion as a BPMS leader,” said Dr. M.A. Ketabchi, president, CEO, and founder of Savvion.  “We feel it reinforces our continuing leadership and echoes what we have been hearing from our growing base of enterprise customers worldwide—that Savvion has the most innovative BPM offerings and delivers the highest ROI for the lowest total cost of ownership.”
