Interfacing Receives Honorable Mention in Gartner’s Latest Business Process Analysis (BPA) Magic Quadrant Tools Report

Gartner’s latest research on Business Process Analysis (BPA) Magic Quadrant Tools Report Lists Interfacing as an honorable mention, based on the Enterprise Process Center® and FirstStep®’s features and customer feedback.

Montreal, Canada, March 01, 2012 --( Interfacing Technologies has announced that it has received an honorable mention by Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, in its recently released Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis (BPA) Tools report.

The report lists Interfacing’s Enterprise Process Center® and FirstStep® Simulator as notable mentions in the BPA-related products category. “Some vendors do not cleanly fall within the BPA market categories… but are worthy of mentioning based on their products, features and customer feedback,” states Gartner. Interfacing is honored to have two products listed by Gartner. Historically, Interfacing was positioned as a visionary in the BPA Magic Quadrant with its Visio BPMN Modeler (now available for download as Freeware), but has since evolved its product offering to include much more than a pure-play BPA with the Enterprise Process Center®; a full Business Process Management Suite (BPMS). EPC offers strong core BPA components, with capabilities that go well beyond modeling and analysis to satisfy a wider-range of process lifecycle management, business architecture, automation and GRC corporate needs.

“Process modeling as part of BPA is becoming a starting point for a growing number of business process management (BPM) and compliance projects, and helps avoid the rush to execution that often results in poor BPM ROI or failure,” states the report. Interfacing has been following this approach for years, and it’s evident from Gartner and the increased demand for enterprise process management tools, that many companies moved too hastily into workflow projects and are now taking a step back. “With workflow in our toolbox we could have pushed our clients to move immediately to automation, but we’ve always been a big believer of walk before you run, buy only what you need, and get a hold of your process first. EPC was developed with the mind-frame that with a well-structured and standardized process framework in-place, the quality and likelihood of a successful automation program doubles,” says Scott Armstrong, Business Development Manager.
