| - Bosch Software Innovations positioned as 1 of 14 vendors that are focused on the maturing Intelligent Business Process Management Suites market |
Berlin - Bosch Software Innovations is again positioned as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites (iBPMS). Gartner is the world leading technology research and advisory company.
Bosch Software Innovations' Offering for the Internet of Things
With the Bosch Software Innovations Suite, the company provides a one-stop solution for process, rules and device management. Thanks to its modular design and flexible components, the software suite offers the perfect platform for projects in the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as for enterprise applications including Business Process Management (BPM) and Business Rules Management (BRM).
The combination of the BPM and BRM components enables consistent process management, which in turn allows the seamless interplay of processes and workflows, rules, data, and applications in the sense of an iBPMS. Combined with the machine-to-machine (M2M) component for device management, the offering provides a “hyperlink” to the real world. The Device Management component enables organizations to connect things, devices, and business processes in a highly efficient network and to develop and operate a secure, flexible, and transparent infrastructure for distributed things and devices.
Dr. Rainer Kallenbach, CEO of Bosch Software Innovations, states: "Bosch Software Innovations is linking the physical with the digital world to enable new solutions in the Internet of Things. Our products for BPM, BRM and M2M are the core of our Bosch IoT platform. We consider our positioning in Gartner's Magic Quadrant as a confirmation of our strategic approach, in which physical devices will be flexibly integrated into business processes. With this, we will be able to adapt processes dynamically to changing conditions at any time. "
According to Gartner, this iBPMS Magic Quadrant positions 14 vendors that are focused on the maturing iBPMS market, where process participants, including people and systems, are supported by greater intelligence to ensure improved process outcomes.*
