K2®, a division of SourceCode Technology Holdings, Inc., announced the upcoming availability of K2 blackpoint™ — low-cost software that allows users to quickly build workflow solutions and process-driven applications within Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.  With K2 blackpoint, drag-and-drop tools and a Microsoft Office-style designer allow even non-technical business users to create new business processes that span libraries, sites, server farms and organizations; manage approvals; and route documents and list items. In addition, users can assemble applications from information that already exists.


K2 blackpoint will also include a Silverlight-based designer, making it the only software to offer both thick- and thin-client tools for building solutions in SharePoint.  K2 blackpoint will be priced on a per-server model — $5,000 (U.S.) for up to 200 users, $10,000 for up to 500 users and $15,000 for unlimited users.  K2 blackpoint-based workflows are accessed through standard menus in Office SharePoint Server 2007 and can be initiated manually or as a result of events, like when documents are checked in, deleted or inserted. Tasks are available in SharePoint Server 2007 task lists or through a K2 Web part for SharePoint products that allows for a consolidated view of tasks across multiple sites, processes and SharePoint servers.
