Ultimus announced that it has been recognized as a leader in The Forrester Wave: Human-Centric BPM for Microsoft Platforms, Q4 2007, Forrester Research, Inc., December 2007. Positioned as a leader, the company was one of a select group of vendors asked to participate in the evaluation.
“Ultimus is a well-known name to many in the BPM space, being one of the longer-lived and most global pure-plays around…Today’s V8 product is modern, redesigned with a new process data model and SOA based server, and easy to use, and this leading BPM company is poised for growth with a new CEO on board.” (The Forrester Wave: Human-Centric BPM for Microsoft Platforms, Q4 2007, December 2007, Colin Teubner)
The Forrester Wave on Human-Centric BPM for Microsoft Platforms evaluates vendors against approximately 150 criteria, grouped into three high-level buckets: current offering, strategy and market presence. These criteria stem from Forrester’s examination of past research, user need assessment and vendor and customer interviews. In a market that is expected to grow to $6.3 billion by 2011, Ultimus received high scores (scale from zero to five), earning a score of 3.76 in Process execution; 5.00 in system integration; and a 3.34 in Process solution. According to Forrester, Ultimus “is an especially good fit for buyers that value ease of use above all and want business users to change processes frequently.”
“For more than 10 years, Ultimus has developed BPM technology that delivers extraordinary business value because we listen to our customers and develop features that truly address their needs,” said Rick Thompson, chief marketing officer at Ultimus. “Forrester Research is undisputably one of the top independent industry analyst firms around and including us as a leader in their research is an honor. The tremendous ROI we bring to our customers is something that we do not take lightly, and having third party recognition as a leader in human-centric BPM from top industry analysts is a strong statement to Ultimus’ position in the market.”

Powered by Adaptive Discovery technology, the Adaptive BPM Suite is the most feature-rich BPM product on the market, with enhancements driven from real customer experience and thousands of processes automated.
