Metastorm Out With Suped-Up BPM Offering: e-Work Version 6


Metastorm, a provider of Business Process Management (BPM) software for automating, managing, and controlling processes, is shipping e-Work Version 6 -- its BPM software platform for large-scale enterprise process management. Metastorm says e-Work Version 6 “enables organizations to more effectively execute and improve business processes, allowing them to maximize the return on investment from their existing software applications, deliver the framework they need to leverage Web services and ultimately gain market advantage.”

“The capabilities of e-Work Version 6 separate Metastorm's product from other BPM products on the market,” the vendor asserts. “Version 6 maintains its proven reputation of supporting the most complex requirements with human-focused tools that are easy to use, code-free and have minimal overhead. e-Work Version 6 provides enhancements that further support the creation, deployment, and maintenance of extremely complex, mission-critical business processes across the enterprise.”

Key highlights of e-Work Version 6, AS DESCRIBED BY METASTORM include:

Collaborative Process Development: enhanced collaborative development tools maximize the reuse of process components, lower maintenance, and increase speed to deployment...

Process-Level Business Activity Monitoring: real-time Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) capabilities are provided for increased insight into all elements of a process. Organizations demand better insight into both strategic and operational process data, and e-Work gives them the knowledge they need to modify and improve processes for better results...

Web Services Process Integration & Management: e-Work Version 6 advances the use of Web services as an enabling technology for business process management. With the click of a button, a Web service can be consumed within an e-Work process or an e-Work process can be created as a Web service. Web services, within the context of a BPM solution, allow companies to expand the reach of their process but still maintain maximum control and management over business operations...

Process Engine Optimization for Complex Scenarios: the e-Work V6 Process Engine has been optimized to deliver and manage large, complex processes -- involving multiple forms, dynamic roles, distributed databases, multiple servers and more, with the highest level of performance...

Improvements in Client Experience: e-Work Version 6 introduces enhanced productivity and ease-of-use with new features designed to improve end-user efficiency and overall experience within complex business processes -- so that process complexity becomes transparent to the user...

e-Work Version 6 supports all levels and types of business processes: including thousands of users, large numbers of processes, wide geographic distribution, or a combination of all three. Examples include: Wilmington Trust with 15 different e-Work processes across 2000 users; The Marketing Society in London with over 45 e-Work processes; and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation with over 2000 users across North America, Europe, and Asia.

"Metastorm has set a new standard for BPM software as we continue to deliver feature-rich product releases so that customers can realize an ongoing return on investment from e-Work and leverage our technology across a wide range of processes," stated Steve Brown, chief technology officer of Metastorm. "Complex processes have more advanced requirements for features and functions -- it's as simple as that. We are dedicated to innovating and delivering BPM technologies to ensure that Metastorm remains the solution of choice for automating, managing, and controlling mission-critical processes."

"Metastorm e-Work Version 6 will further add to our already increasing levels of efficiency and agility," stated Rachel Saunders, eGovernment Champion, Bracknell Forest Borough Council. "The enhancements in product features will ensure that Bracknell Forest will remain a leader in eGovernment and help us achieve our 2005 eGovernment agenda."

"As a beta client for e-Work Version 6, we found the new enhancements to be extremely valuable to us in expanding our usage of e-Work for automating internal business processes," says Nigel Horncastle, business development director of ioko365. "Version 6 will allow us to drive even greater efficiencies across our business processes by utilizing the new and improved functionality, as well as enabling increased productivity and scalability."
