Fujitsu Introduces Interstage Business Process Manager Version 10

-Enhanced process visualization and Rapid Application Development capabilities accelerate business improvement while multi-tenancy options reduce TCO-

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, June 16, 2008

Fujitsu Limited today announced the worldwide release of InterstageĀ® Business Process Manager Version 10, the latest release of its award-winning business process management software. As a result of customer feedback on the popular BPM solution - which has seen 50 percent year-over-year revenue increases for three consecutive years - the new Interstage Business Process Manager release delivers several enhancements, including improved business process simulation, analysis, and monitoring capabilities; advanced Rapid Application Development tools that enable customers to bring products and services to market faster; and multi-tenancy options to reduce a customer's total cost of ownership (TCO) for its business systems.

Continuous improvements to a company's business processes are crucial to keeping up with changing business requirements. By visualizing process performance, Fujitsu Interstage Business Process Manager helps organizations quickly and definitively evolve through business process improvement cycles. Interstage Business Process Manager draws on the principles of service-oriented architecture (SOA), promoting the re-use of existing assets and helping companies adapt to changing business needs. The new version's Rapid Application Development and advanced multi-tenancy capabilities help businesses quickly deploy multiple business applications on a single server of Interstage Business Process Manager, thereby reducing TCO.

"Many organizations are using a BPMS to support internal IT shared service environments, and there is increased interest in using BPMS as a foundation for SaaS offerings," said Michele Cantara, research vice president at Gartner. "Using a BPMS in this fashion can help drive down costs while providing the ability to mass customize business processes for internal IT shared service environments or for SaaS providers working with different customers."

"Fujitsu envisions helping customers build a unified platform upon which they build new solutions that leverage their existing information silos and other technology investments," said Akira Yamanaka, corporate vice president, president of Software Unit, Fujitsu Limited. "Our software vision draws from the key tenets of SOA, and the latest release of Interstage Business Process Manager helps customers deliver new solutions quickly while reusing their existing assets based on governance policies that are in place. This ensures business transformation in a disciplined, more cost-efficient manner."

Key Enhancements

  • Advanced process simulation, monitoring, and analysis capabilities to quickly detect and respond to changing business needs: Processes can be monitored by defining monitoring conditions, and outlier values can be automatically escalated with announcements via email or by calls to an external system. Business processes can be analyzed, problems detected, and improvements explored using a process-information data warehouse that includes business data.
  • Rapid Application Development capabilities help companies reduce time to market for new products and services: The newest release of Interstage Business Process Manager includes rich capabilities that support Rapid Application Development - from creating rich user interfaces to delivering service mashups and composite applications.
  • Multi-tenancy lowers TCO for application resources: Advanced application partitioning and multi-tenancy capabilities allow enterprises as well as SaaS partners to host multiple applications on a single server of Interstage Business Process Manager in a cost-effective, risk-free manner.
