(businesspress24) - According to Gartner Inc., Leaders “are high-viability vendors with proven track records in BPA tools with high degrees of functionality or market penetration, as well as vision and business investment. They are also well-positioned for the future because of completeness of vision — due to financial commitment and market share, technological differentiation or both. Leaders do not necessarily offer the best products for every customer project or role. However, they provide solutions that offer relatively lower risk.”

“Business process analysis (BPA) tools enable business process architects to document, analyze and streamline complex processes, thereby allowing business areas to become more agile and effective,” Blechar notes in the report. Moreover, “As a best practice, organizations are defining business processes, events and workflows in BPA tools and bridging this information into IT modeling tools and Business Process Management Suites (BPMSs) where more detailed software and data service analysis, design and development occurs.”

“We are pleased to be positioned by Gartner in the Leaders Quadrant in the Business Process Analysis Magic Quadrant,” said Ken Carraher, President of iGrafx. “We believe this validates our expertise and commitment to deliver best-of-breed enterprise modeling tools that enable our customers to achieve process excellence. With the newly released iGrafx 2007 solutions, we continue to deliver innovative leading-edge products that address customer needs and further enhance our market position.”
