Bluespring Announces Release 5.0 of Bluespring BPM Suite

New Generation of Popular Business Process Management (BPM) Software Fully Leverages Microsoft Technology, Streamlines Solution Design, and Provides the Framework for BPA and BPM Integration

Cincinnati, OH, July 15, 2010 --( Bluespring Software (Bluespring), a leading provider of Business Process Innovation (BPI) technology and solutions, today announced immediate availability of Bluespring BPM Suite 5.0. The result of significant industry research and customer input, this new generation of Bluespring’s flagship Business Process Management Suite has been developed with an advanced software architecture that fully leverages the Microsoft Technology Platform and 64 bit processors along with web services, a powerful business rules engine, and an intuitive user interface to deliver a new level of extensibility, performance, and ease-of-use.

Bluespring BPM Suite 5.0 enables an organization to rapidly design, deploy, manage, and continuously improve almost any business process, from simple to complex. It provides a collaborative business process design environment, standards-based integration with enterprise systems and data, highly flexible workflow controls for human interaction, and a robust, scalable run-time environment suitable for dynamic, mission-critical business processes.

Key enhancements delivered in release 5.0 include:

- A significantly enhanced architecture that enables organizations to fully leverage their investment in Microsoft Technologies, as well as the power of 64 bit processors, within a highly dynamic BPM framework. Bluespring BPM Suite 5.0 is fully Microsoft .NET compliant and tightly integrated with the latest versions of Microsoft Office, Microsoft Exchange, and Microsoft SharePoint Server. The Interpretive XML architecture now enables rapid deployment of process changes using an “assemble and publish” approach. New capabilities have been incorporated for complex data models, simplified table handling, localization, and more.

- A new business rules engine that enables a spectrum of business rule authors, from subject matter experts to business analysts and developers, to easily write and maintain sophisticated business rules and complex calculations. Authoring features include natural language-like rules, sophisticated expression-building, multi-dimensional decision tables, visual rule flow, and rule templates. With the Bluespring BPM Suite 5.0 rules engine, organizations can effectively manage business logic as a dynamic corporate asset.

- An enhanced Visual Process Designer that makes it easy for process owners, business analysts, and IT professionals to collaboratively define business process solutions that span any combination of people, systems, data sources, locations and organizations. A completely new UI developed around Microsoft standards provides visibility of the process flow along with all enterprise resources and process definition tools from a single point & click graphical user interface. Drag & drop process modeling enables non-IT business analysts to easily develop visual process flow diagrams by incorporating and configuring activities from a library of pre-defined activity types. Business analysts and IT professionals can easily define objects representing all types of resources, including data sources, systems (e.g. web service), document templates, human roles and task assignments, business rules, and process hierarchies for use in process and solution design.

"Release 5.0 represents a whole new generation of the Bluespring BPM Suite," said Edward Bauer, Bluespring CEO. "Besides moving us to a truly Microsoft-centric architecture and adding new industry-leading capabilities, one of the most important aspects of Bluespring BPM 5.0 is that it provides the framework for delivery of a comprehensive Business Process Innovation solution that tightly integrates our Business Process Analysis (BPA) tools within our BPM Suite. For instance, we will soon be delivering an exciting new KPI Console that goes well beyond the dashboards currently available in the market. It will integrate the business process analytics engine from our ProcessView BPA product with real-time data captured in BPM to provide dynamic real time and historical process performance information as well as process simulation using actual process data. That and other new capabilities we’re building on the Bluespring BPM Suite 5.0 foundation will give organizations a whole new way to continuously streamline key business processes, respond to changing conditions, and improve bottom line performance."
