Microsoft and Business Process Management: A Technology Overview.

The lads from K2.net came by the office the other week to take us through their upcoming "BlackPearl" release which is built on top of Windows Workflow Foundation... it has some very exciting features and looks really spicko to boot.

One thing the session did cause though was a heady debate around how it is positioned against BizTalk, SharePoint Workflow, Windows Workflow Foundation etc. etc.

It quickly became obvious that Chris V and I need to flesh out (to include partner offerings etc.) the "Demystifying Workflow" presentation that we put together for the Microsoft Australia SOA and Business Process Conference and have since rolled out to anyone willing to listen :-)

Luckily though, Nick Ward pointed me to a white paper that we released in February (so may be old news to some of you) called Microsoft and Business Process Management: A Technology Overview.

The white paper is written by the one-and-only David Chappell and is up to his usual high standard...  

So if you are keen to understand Microsoft's range of offerings that fall under the umbrella of "BPM technology", check it out.
