APELDOORN, The Netherlands, April 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Software vendor Be Informed continues to grow. Especially in financial services and public sector the Be Informed business process platform is being used extensively. Because of the product's unique approach, customers achieve significantly better results in terms of time to change and cost savings. Analyst firm Forrester even calls these results orders of magnitude better than with traditional business process management tools.
A different, strictly rules-based, technology approach needs to be accompanied by a specific implementation method as well, based on modeling principles such as Demo, Cogniam, Pronto and TOC. Because of the enormous growth of Be Informed, there is an urgent need for more consultants and architects with these specific skills. Be Informed has trained 250 consultants already.
