BPM player Elite Value Solutions recently launched BPMCloud.net, combining the power of business process management with cloud-computing technology to deliver managed BPM solutions to its clients in minutes. They promise to create a business process ecosystem, significantly extending the availability and reach of business process management solutions in the marketplace.
“Business process management systems have traditionally been available to large businesses only. This is not because BPM is only valuable to larger companies, but simply because it has been too complex and cost prohibitive for small and medium size businesses to access” said Michael Piccolo, CEO of Elite Value Solutions. “BPMCloud.net promotes ease of use, providing the accessibility, flexibility and scalability necessary to deliver the value of business process management solutions to any type and size business”
What about the value of BPM? Implementing BPM solutions promises to drive productivity and produce competitive advantages that result in cost savings and business growth.
To get started, clients can easily create an account on BPMCloud.net and build their own independent BPM domains that run EliteBPM software, Elite’s business process management system. A BPM domain contains the entire infrastructure and enterprise services required to build process-driven solutions plus a copy of the EliteBPM software edition of choice. Clients can then manage their BPM domains within the BPM Management Console, which is part of the BPMCloud.net service and available at no extra cost.
“Our clients can build as many BPM domains as they need, scale the domains up and down and only pay for what they use, not by user. SaaS providers can build process-driven solutions once and quickly replicate BPM domains for their customers. All businesses can realize ROI faster without being concerned with growing costs”
When asked about concerns surrounding security, integration and control in the cloud, Michael responded:
“We have implemented strict security policies to protect each BPM domain and our cloud-based EliteBPM product was built to eliminate all common security vulnerabilities. Clients can securely integrate with the cloud using our EliteBPM Integration edition. They can schedule regular backups from the BPM Management Console to protect data. We even allow our clients to access the virtual server directly to integrate, configure and secure the system to meet their exact needs. Adding to this, the BPM domains run in the Amazon EC2 public cloud which has passed SAS70 audits for operational performance and security excellence. It is the most secure and mature cloud available”
Clients who are uncomfortable moving BPM solutions to the cloud can purchase a server license of EliteBPM and keep their systems internal. For these clients, Elite recommends creating a hybrid approach, keeping costs low by using BPMCloud.net for proof of concepts and development while keeping their production systems in-house.
Their EliteBPM product is not too shabby either. It is 100% web-based and the interfaces were built with Web 2.0 technology. Clients can brand their EliteBPM product to take on a custom look and feel and build rich business processes that look great and perform exceptionally.
EliteBPM is the tool used to power the BPMCloud.net site and service.
“EliteBPM runs our BPMCloud.net business. It takes business process management to an entirely new level. We built features that our clients demanded and our competitors seem to ignore, creating flexibility that puts more power in the hands of the user. Adding to this flexibility is our use of open technologies including Java, J2EE, and EliteBPM’s open APIs. Processes can be built and deployed right into a BPM domain from the open-source Eclipse development environment. This reduces costs further by eliminating the need to find expensive technical resources that are familiar with our competitors proprietary design tools. It is basic supply and demand”, added Michael as a final note.
