Nimbus Partners named as ‘Visionary’ in Gartner BPA Magic Quadrant

Nimbus, a global provider of business process management (BPM) software, called Nimbus Control, has been included in the ‘visionaries’ quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis Tools, published February 22nd, 2010.

In the Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis Tools Report, Gartner comments “We continued to focus on BP architects and analysts as the prototypical buyers of BPA tools. BPA tools also can be used by other roles in the organization (for example, lines-of-business owners, departmental heads and operations staff). This is part of the growing use of “BPA for the masses,” embedding BPA into the everyday organization. We see this trend with increased use of automated and non-automated “as-is” process discovery and cloud-based modeling to improve communication and collaboration.”

Ian Gotts, Founder and CEO, Nimbus said “We’re delighted to be included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for BPA. We believe our visionary position appears to acknowledge that we’re offering something different and innovative for organizations who want to achieve sustainable business process improvement. As Gartner acknowledge in the report, the audience for business process content is changing. It is increasingly the whole business, not just highly trained analysts or the IT department. For process analysis to deliver value you need to drive change across the entire workforce. To do this you need to present the process changes in a way that the whole audience can easily understand. This is what Nimbus is all about, and why we are leading the way with our personalized deployment of process tutorials, which we call Storyboards, not just to browsers, but also to the Apple iPhone.”

Nimbus’ flagship product Nimbus Control, and the recently launch Nimbus Control for the iPhone drive effectiveness and efficiency within an organization by turning the results of process capture and analysis into actionable content which can be easily understood by the whole workforce. Nimbus describes this as an “on-line intelligent operations manual for the business.

Nimbus Control can be installed on-premise, though according to Nimbus around 90% of new clients use the hosted software-as-a-service solution, which enables new projects to get started immediately without the need to overcome IT barriers. Recent client case studies and videos on Nimbus’ website include: Carphone Warehouse, Chevron and ING.
