Leading Industry Analyst Firm: Whitestein Technologies a ‘Cool Vendor’ in Business Process Management (BPM)

Living Systems Process Suite brings unique value for organizations that require dynamically configurable processes and want to continuously optimize business performance.

(PresseBox) (Zürich, ) Gartner, the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, has named Whitestein Technologies a Cool Vendor in Business Process Management (BPM).[1,2]

With its Living Systems Process Suite, Whitestein pioneers BPM software that zeroes in on business goals to drive the management and continuous optimization of dynamic processes. Its unique concept and architecture supports goal-oriented processes and the ability to self-adapt to changing business conditions. This is attractive to organizations that want to remain agile while reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) of BPM in a dynamic world.

Jim Sinur, Research VP of Gartner states in the report that organizations requiring dynamically configurable processes “will want to continually optimize their processes, and to have this optimization happen in a semiautomatic or automatic fashion.” He goes on to remark that “typically, organizations need to combine multiple technologies or vendors by themselves to create this kind of process behavior today.”

The Living Systems Process Suite remains the only integrated full-lifecycle BPM suite to support the goal-oriented design, execution, monitoring, and automatic optimization of business and operational processes

By making the adaptation and improvement of structured and unstructured processes painless and quick, the Living Systems Process Suite is perfectly suited for situations of high market and business dynamics that require frequent and swift response to changing conditions. It provides business professionals and IT experts with intuitive tools to collaboratively capture and easily adapt a process’ various objectives and the activities that will fulfill them in different ways. The software then dynamically chooses the most suitable approach to fulfilling each process goal and automatically readjusts its course whenever necessary.

On being named as a Gartner Cool Vendor in BPM, Urs-Peter Oehen, CEO of Whitestein Technologies said: "We are delighted to be recognized as an innovative vendor by Gartner. It is very pleasing to see our outlook on the business value of adopting agile, goal-oriented BPM being recognized. We believe being chosen as a Cool Vendor in BPM confirms the unique and exceptional qualities of our offering and gives us a great boost for growing our market reach further.”
