Software AG has announced that ARIS Cloud is now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace for customers to purchase as a direct Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. ARIS Cloud is a comprehensive SaaS offering for business process management and supports digital transformation. Customers can use it to run fast and easy business process analyses in one of the leading cloud environments to manage their business and IT transformation projects. Now, the ARIS Cloud Advanced edition can be provisioned on AWS Marketplace, a digital software catalog that makes it easy for AWS customers to quickly find, test, buy and deploy cloud-based software to run their businesses. 

Marc Vietor, General Manager Business Transformation at Software AG, says: “With ARIS Cloud Advanced, we are offering a professional yet lean software solution that enables departments, process managers, IT organizations and other stakeholders in a company to launch their process optimization projects quickly and easily—especially on-premises to cloud migration projects. ARIS connects all participating employees and offers direct, role-specific access to process knowledge and all associated information in a collaborative environment. With our AWS Marketplace offering, we now provide a broad target group of more than 200,000 active AWS Marketplace customers with an additional opportunity to use ARIS Cloud Advanced.” 

David McCann, Vice President, AWS Marketplace and Catalog Services, Amazon Web Services, Inc. adds: “AWS customers can now provision ARIS Cloud Advanced directly through AWS Marketplace. We’re frequently hearing from our customers how important the right process orchestration is for their cloud journeys and that’s one use case where ARIS Cloud Advanced can help. The ARIS Cloud Advanced launch on AWS Marketplace shows Software AG’s commitment to helping our shared customers innovate. It’s now available to our 230,000 customers worldwide, who have initiated over 1 million software subscriptions to innovate faster on AWS.” 

Johannes Wöhler, CTO of the ARIS customer, Digital Education Holdings, Ltd with brands such as EDU and Candena, explains the reason for using ARIS Cloud as follows: “We chose ARIS Cloud because we required a cloud solution that combines ease-of-use with a powerful methodology toolbox. Our designers could be on-boarded within just a few days, and with more than 100 different diagram types, it meant they could quickly cover all aspects of our business. The collaboration and contribution features involve all users and foster the interactive creation of business processes.

Software AG offers a number of other products in containers on AWS Marketplace in addition to ARIS Cloud, including ARIS Connect and ARIS Risk & Compliance Manager. Last year, Software AG became one of the first companies to make its products available on the new AWS Marketplace for Containers, and now is expanding its offering to include SaaS solutions.

DIGITAL ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE: New Association to Provide Networking, Education and Assistance for Enterprises on Their Digital Transformation Journeys


The Institute for Robotic Process Automation & AI (IRPA AI) and The Outsourcing Institute announced the launch today of its newest professional association, Digital Enterprise Institute (DEI) located at www.digitalenterpriseinsitute.com, focused on providing guidance, networking and resources to organizations trying to navigate digital transformation and the convergence of emerging technologies. 

Covering transformation and digitization as a whole, DEI will be part of a family of professional networks that now cover all topics affecting today’s enterprise, giving executives multiple levers in order to get work done; whether it be traditional outsourcing leveraging The Outsourcing Institute; automation/AI-led programs via IRPA AI; or now broader transformation and digitization. DEI will explore topics not currently covered by its existing associations, such as blockchain, analytics, IoT & cyber-security, but also focus on how to eliminate the separate siloes that are stymieing transformation, creating a truly end-to-end enterprise, with help on decisions around whether to buy, build or partner to get this work done. 

 “Thousands of our members are focused and challenged by digital transformation. This network and ecosystem will focus purely on the buyers, providers and influencer from those companies that are looking to learn, connect and successfully transform. If you’re like many of our members who are looking to learn the latest trends, best practices and case studies, then this is a network that you need to join,” said Frank Casale, Founder of The Outsourcing Institute & IRPA AI.

“We realized just over two years ago now that too many firms were stuck in the legacy world and not ready for the digital age, and that many of those who were focused entirely on RPA & automation needed a more holistic approach in order to achieve true transformation,” added Daniel Goodstein, President of Media & Events for DEI, IRPA AI & Outsourcing Institute. “Digital is driving a 10x change across every industry and organizations today need the speed and agility to personalize their services, be more customer-centric and launch new products more rapidly. As the focus shifts from cost savings to creating more value for customers and employees, the nature of relationships between enterprises and their technology partners will move from SLAs to collaboration, with support from trusted business partners who can help glue all the moving pieces together.” 

DEI also encompasses the Digital Exchange Solutions group which was launched as part of IRPA AI last year, which helps companies with their digital transformation &a automation strategies and helps match clients with potential providers, solutions and resources. Looking to get started? Join DEI here and sign up for DEI’s first official member event, The Digital Convergence Conference, on September 10th in NYC.

About Digital Enterprise Institute (DEI): Digital Enterprise Institute (DEI) is a new professional association focused on providing education, networking opportunities, guidance and proactive resources to enterprises that are trying to navigate digital transformation and the convergence of emerging technologies. Born out of the Outsourcing Institute &a IRPA AI, our newly formed Digital Enterprise Institute now focuses on this holistic transformation and digitization within enterprises because its truly where the industry is headed, and needs to move to very quickly.

CASO BPM: Grup Balfegó implanta BPM para sus procesos administrativos y para la trazabilidad del atún rojo

La principal empresa catalana dedicada a la Pesca, Acuicultura y Comercialización del atún rojo, Grup Balfegó, ha implantado AuraPortal BPM no solo para la automatización de los procesos administrativos de la organización, sino que también en todos los procesos relacionados con el tratamiento del atún. Se comenzó poniendo en marcha los procesos clave: Proceso de Extracción, Proceso de Mantenimiento en Granja y Alimentación, Proceso de Procesado Industrial y Proceso de Comercialización. Procesos alineados a la estrategia corporativa "la excelencia empresarial bajo un sistema de responsabilidad empresarial sostenible que satisficiese las expectativas de sus clientes de forma continuada y que garantizara la continuidad de la especie para generaciones futuras".

El atún rojo es un pez altamente migratorio, lo que hace necesario que para su supervisión y control exista una organización regional de pesca (ICCAT) que, en el año 2006 implantó para la conservación de la especie un plan de recuperación que ha obligado a los operadores a cumplir más de 30 normas, siendo la actividad pesquera más controlada y regulada del mundo con la consiguiente complejidad administrativa. 

Los resultados han sido visibles a las dos semanas del inicio de implantación de AuraPortal BPM Suite como una plataforma de automatización corporativa para todos sus procesos, desde la administración hasta los procesos de producción relacionados con la pesca, el procesamiento y la venta de atún: 
  • 80% de mejora en tiempos de proceso. 
  • 30% más rápida adaptación a los cambios ambientales. 
  • 77% de reducción en errores humanos. 
Balfegó es la única compañía en el mundo que ha implementado un sistema completo de trazabilidad para el atún rojo, y lo ha podido hacer gracias a Business Process Management

Earlier this year, Signavio was recognized as a March 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Enterprise Business Process Analysis Software.
“10 years ago, we set out on a journey to tackle the time-consuming practices that limit business productivity,” said Dr. Gero Decker, CEO and co-founder of Signavio. “This significant new investment further validates our approach to solve business problems faster and more efficiently, unleashing the power of process through our unique Business Transformation Suite. We are thrilled to welcome Apax Digital as our new lead partner, and look forward to building upon our success to date by leveraging our partners’ operating capabilities and global platforms for our international expansion.”

“As businesses have become more global, and workforces more distributed, business processes have proliferated, and become more complex,” noted Mr. O’Keefe and Mr. Beith. “Signavio’s cloud-native suite allows employees across an enterprise to collaborate and transform their businesses by digitizing, optimizing and ultimately automating their processes. We are tremendously excited to partner with the Signavio team and to support their vision.”

Progress Announces the Release of Corticon 6.0, Combining REST Integration with Digital Decisioning

Leading digital decisioning solution delivers lightning-fast REST API data access and new .NET server architecture for 3x faster throughput

Progress, a provider of application development and digital experience technologies, today announced the latest release of the Progress® Corticon® business rules management solution. As part of Progress’ strategy to simplify and streamline business decision management, Corticon 6.0 now includes faster support for REST data connectivity, providing a more efficient means of connecting to REST APIs and extracting the data necessary to fuel improved decision making. In addition, the release introduces a new, simpler architecture for .NET server, enabling users to execute decisions three times faster and with more reliability. 

Support for Accessing REST Services 

Corticon 6.0
expands the data integration capabilities of Corticon with the introduction of a new REST data source. The amount of data and data sources leveraged across enterprise, mobile and web applications continue to grow exponentially.Because of this, data sources are becoming more disparate, making REST APIs an increasingly popular way to access enterprise data. By embedding the Progress® DataDirect® Autonomous REST Connector—an intelligent, customizable data connectivity solution enabling lightning-fast, codeless connections between applications and REST API data sources—Corticon customers are now able to connect to the vast variety of data sources necessary to inform digital decision making within minutes. 

“Automating decision management with Corticon enables us to strengthen our applications and keep pace with change,” said Maxine Bossard, Information Systems Manager, April Marine. “Given that Corticon is at the heart of our future information systems, the new REST support will greatly facilitate our use of REST data to drive digital decisioning.” 

New .NET Server Architecture 

Corticon’s Java implementation option powers some of the most scalable business rule implementations in the world, and with Corticon 6.0 that same speed and scalability is introduced in .NET providing as much as three times faster throughput and eliminating the need for cross-compiling. .NET users now have the architecture flexibility to use both in-process and Microsoft IIS deployment. 

“Organizations are driving harder than ever for increased effectiveness and agility in business operations. The ease with which you can capture, change and optimize the rules that run your business either promotes or inhibits the agility of your organization. It also impacts the consistency, quality and speed of your decisions – which goes straight to your bottom line,” said John Ainsworth, SVP, Core Products, Progress. “With this release, Progress Corticon delivers a faster, more powerful, and easy to use automated digital decisioning system that tames the complex market dynamics, policies and regulatory rules enterprises face without user, performance, platform or data limitations.”
Progress Corticon 6.0 is available today. Although available as a standalone solution, DataDirect Autonomous REST Connector enhances the capabilities of the latest Corticon release at no additional cost. For more information go to https://www.progress.com/corticon

About "20 Most Promising BPM Solution Providers 2019" published by CIOReview

CIOReview has published a list of "20 Most Promising BPM Solution Providers".  In the list there are players of different technologies that they can be included in the BPM life cycle, but we can not confuse to the audience about BPM platforms.  Take a look at the differences of 3 types of platforms in Gartner's classification: basic BPM platform, BPMS (Business Process Management Suite) and iBPMS (Intelligent Business Process Management Suite),  in my article "How to select a BPM software?". For instance, a RPA vendor does not provide a BPM platform as the RPA product has not able to manage human tasks. It should be very interested to use RPA technology for automation of repetitive tasks where there is not required the human participation and there are not exceptions, but never we can talk about a RPA vendor as BPM vendor. And if we talk about Case Management Systems, we will be focuses on unstructured processes, but what about structured processes.

As BPM is a discipline and in the BPM Life Cycle we can use products as Enterprise Architecture (EA) Tool, Business Process Analysis (BPA) tool, Business Process Management Suite (BPMS, or iBPMS), Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), Business Rules Management System (BRMS) or Operational Decision Management (ODM),  Adaptive Case Management System (ACM), Enterprise Content Management (ECM), Complex Event Processing (CEP), Business Activity Monitoring (BAM), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), and more, when we have to study the different possible players, we should define the right criteria to compare with rigor.
