iGrafx®, a leading provider of Business Process Management (BPM) solutions, announced today that it has been included in Gartner Inc.‘s first-ever “Market Guide for Enterprise Business Process Analysis” report, authored by Marc Kerremans and published on March 4, 2015.
Gartner defines Enterprise Business Process Analysis (EPBA) as “the discipline of business modeling aimed at transforming and improving business performance and business outcomes.” The Gartner Market Guide highlights key vendors and how they fulfill common use cases of EBPA.
“We are proud to be recognized by Gartner as a representative vendor in this continually evolving market space,” said Ken Carraher, CEO of iGrafx. “iGrafx has been enabling organizations to improve their performance for over two decades by empowering users from all areas of the business to contribute to operational excellence.”
Gartner’s Marc Kerremans noted in the report that digital business practices are motivating the adoption of EBPA in organizations. “We see two main drivers for EBPA tools adoption in the market. First, as digital business is becoming a major theme, and because process reinvention is crucial to these digital business initiatives, digital business drives the growth in business users’ awareness of the benefits of analyzing and understanding their own processes in a larger context.” Second, according to Kerremans, “The accelerating pace of business is driving the need to respond quicker and more effectively to change.”
Carraher acknowledged that, “As the world of business evolves, BPA has been applied in different ways to support business improvement. iGrafx has long promoted the value of modeling, analyzing and communicating the interactions of multiple aspects of the business to support business transformation. We believe that Gartner’s most recent observations about the evolution of BPA confirms our vision and the alignment of our solutions with the needs of today’s organizations to stay agile and innovative in the way they manage their business.”
