Metastorm launches process pods

Business process management vendor Metastorm Inc has announced the launch of Process Pods, a combination of process templates and other resources targeted at a particular vertical sector.

By CBR Staff Writer

The company, which bought fellow BPM vendor CommerceQuest in October last year, said the new Pods are designed to help customers accelerate the deployment of process improvement initiatives.

Each Pod will contain process maps pre-built in the Metastorm Designer; electronic forms pre-built in the Metastorm Forms Builder; pre-built management and analytical reports; pre-built integration with mail, collaboration, messaging and business applications; as well as administrative tools.

Also included are electronic process documentation, .NET and Java Application Programming Interfaces, basic scripts or web services where appropriate, sample data, and a multimedia Podcast that describes the application and the business value it is claimed to provide.

Greg Carter, CTO and vice president of development for Metastorm, said customers will be able to take the Pods and customize them to the unique needs of their specific organization. Metastorm’s professional services consultants will be on hand to further extend the scope of any Process Pod, he said.

Process Pods include New Customer Acquisition, New Store Opening, Case Management, and Purchase Order Management. It plans new Pods including process management elements for Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 Compliance. Metastorm also plans to provide Pod development guidelines to partners enabling them to create Metastorm-certified Process Pods.
