Gartner has published a new review of Microsoft's BPM strategy and our related partner BPMS products which make up the Microsoft Process Platform.  This is the first time Gartner has included Microsoft in one of their BPMS reviews and made several key observations about our strategy:

  • The Microsoft strategy of providing a business process platform gives users more flexibility to select the partner solution which most closely matches their needs.
  • Use of the Microsoft platform allows customers to leverage their existing skills with products such as Office, SharePoint and SQL, as well as developer skills centered on Visual Studio, BizTalk and the .NET Framework.
  • ISV partners who build on top of the .NET based Microsoft business process platform can easily extend their applications as necessary by utilizing the extensibility of the .NET Framework.
