Quotes

Rio Mori, Executive Vice President, Platform Products, Fujitsu America:
"The Interstage Cloud BPM platform enables Fujitsu to create truly innovative win-win programs for our customers and partners. We have eliminated cost and deployment time barriers, thereby allowing enterprises to develop process-based solutions and partners to create new revenue-generating business process applications. While this will clearly spur adoption of our Interstage BPM suite, the real benefit accrues to companies that will have a more affordable way to improve their business processes."

Michele Cantara, Gartner:
"Enterprises today need to be hyper-connected, so this is fostering a wave of collaborative development within enterprises, globally distributed development teams, across partners, suppliers and customers. BPM platforms in the Cloud can support dynamic, less structured processes while providing end-to-end visibility across business processes involving all collaborators. BPM platforms provide the right balance between process flexibility and governance. Some customers want a single vendor to rely on for their KPIs and SLAs for BPM in the Cloud. These customers should seek out vendors who deliver BPMS in the Cloud using their own data centers."
