First Impression: IActive ACM Suite

Written by Nathaniel Palmer.


Even in the rapidly evolving market for Adaptive Case Management technologies, it is still rare to find approaches which address the true goal-driven requirements of case management rather than simply extending the procedural orientation of traditional Business Process Management System (BPMS) technologies to address unanticipated events. IActive IT (Intelligent Technologies) is such a vendor. We first learned of IActive when they won the WfMC Global Award for Excellence in Case Managementin 2012 and then again in 2014, as well as when they received the Gartner Cool Vendor Award in Business Process Management. Among our analyst team it is important that we remain impartial, and as a matter of policy we have never endorsed any single product or vendor (nor are we going to do so today).

First Impression: BP Logix Process Director 3.0

Written by Nathaniel Palmer.

Recently the team was provided with a comprehensive demonstration of the latest release, version 3.0, of Process Director from BP Logix. This was not a literal introduction, as we have had the opportunity to explore Process Director through prior briefings by BP Logix, as well as through working independently with two key customers. This has allowed us to understand both the potential value and the differentiating features offered by Process Director historically, as well as provide us with a unique appreciation of the critical milestones achieved with the V 3.0 release.

  • This could be definitely intelligent BPM. I do not see many customers who need this level of sophistication. What customers does BP Logix have already that are interested in this capability, and what level of process maturity are they at?
