Metastorm today announced that it has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis Tools.
Gartner, Inc.’s Magic Quadrant positions vendors in a particular market segment based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. Metastorm has also recently been placed in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture tools and in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Business Process Management Suites (BPMS).
The Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis tools report states: “BPA tools are key components of BP improvement initiatives, and the discipline of BPM. BPA tools are used by business analysts and architects to construct BP models. Process modeling is a key BPM technology when used in a BPMS (models are in sync with the implementation — that is, the BPM model artifacts should always reflect what’s being executed). In this capacity, BPA tools complement BPMS tools by enabling deeper, multilevel modeling (conceptual, logical and physical in greater detail, including relationship mapping) than the modeling component of a BPMS.”
Metastorm ProVision® for BPA provides a comprehensive solution that allows organizations to discover, model, analyze and optimize their business processes. Metastorm ProVision’s ease of use, built in methodologies, wide array of industry reference models, and integrated user guides, provide rapid time to value; and its rich simulation and analysis capabilities help organizations achieve continuous process improvements. Unlike other BPA software products, Metastorm ProVision also provides deep enterprise and business architecture functionality to allow organizations to better understand the relationship of business processes to the broader enterprise. And paired with Metastorm BPM®, an organization can execute process improvement initiatives with great speed and agility at minimal cost.
Based on customer feedback, Metastorm has one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the BPA market.
Metastorm ProVision is part of the Metastorm Enterprise software portfolio, which uniquely combines leading, best-of-breed EA, BPA, and BPM capabilities on a common, integrated framework. Together, these solutions deliver a powerful platform for aligning strategy, analysis and execution.
