San Jose, Calif. – October 21, 2008 – Cordys, a global leader in next generation Business Process Management (BPM), today announced that the company is cited as a leader by Forrester Research, Inc. in the October 2008 Forrester Wave™: Integration-Centric Business Process Management Suites, Q4 2008.

According to the report, “Cordys achieved a leadership position based on its strong scores across all of the major functional areas: enterprise application integration (EAI), business-to-business interactions (B2B), business process management (BPM), and service-oriented architecture (SOA).”
“We are proud to be named a leader in the independent evaluation of the IC-BPMS market – a strong growing market segment that promises game-changing business value. This is no small feat in a category of software that is one of the more comprehensive collections of middleware tools available on the market today,” said Jan Baan, Founder, Executive Chairman and CEO for Cordys. “Furthermore, Cordys Business Operations Platform goes well beyond IC-BPMS to create a total human-centric and integration-centric solution in a single product capable of handling complex integration and activity, including orchestration between people, applications, back-end systems, and external business partners, empowering organizations to increase the speed of change and achieve faster innovation. We applaud Forrester for assembling one of the most in-depth reviews of IC-BPMS products and helping enterprise architects more quickly chart and evaluate the path to business process innovation.”
Forrester evaluated leading software vendors across 109 criteria through extensive product demonstrations and customer interviews. The criteria were grouped into three categories: Current Offering, Strategy and Market presence.
According to the report, “IC-BPMS products have captured a central role as the foundational middleware component in many leading enterprises, and firms are using them with increasing frequency to deliver game-changing solutions… It is becoming increasingly clear that the availability of these types of tools is enabling enterprises to simultaneously improve operational efficiency and support business innovation.” Forrester predicts strong product growth going forward as enterprises expand their internal usage of IC-BPMS.
