Shelton, CT; Oakland, CA (PRWEB) February 2, 2006
Active Endpoints, Inc. (http://www.active-endpoints.com), a leading independent provider of SOA integration solutions, today announced a strategic technology alliance with Action Technologies (http://www.actiontech.com), a software firm specializing in business process management (BPM). Under the terms of the alliance, Action Technologies will integrate Active Endpoints' ActiveWebflow™ solutions with their award-winning ActionWorks® suite, which unifies knowledge work in dynamic team environments through a powerful suite of Web-based collaboration, project management and administrative tools.
This new alliance leverages standards-based software solutions designed to meet the needs of customers who value the benefits and power of Web services.
ActiveWebflow is a family of platform-neutral, standards-based software solutions that allow organizations to quickly automate process flows internally and across their supplier, customer and partner ecosystems. Unlike proprietary solutions that interface with the BPEL (Business Process Execution Language) standard through import and export utilities, ActiveWebflow supports BPEL as its native process orchestration language.
ActionWorks is the only BPM software solution that models the “natural” ways in which knowledge workers interact, in contrast to the rigid and inefficient task-based methodology found in other BPM products. Since ActionWorks is based on a system of negotiations and commitments, accountability rests with individual performers, instead of the veritable “someone.” Action Technology has won more than 15 major industry awards and is categorized as a “visionary” solutions provider within Gartner’s Pure-Play BPM Magic Quadrant.
“Many of the world's largest manufacturers and financial services companies use Action Technologies' Person-to-Person BPM solutions. The integration of the industry standard BPEL technology with our BPM product will empower our customers and prospects to adapt our solutions rapidly and proactively to best suit their business requirements and the environment within which they operate,” said Bill Welty, CEO, Action Technologies. “Action expects many of its customers to deploy the J2EE™ version of the ActionWorks suite which integrates ActiveWebflow, to deliver the process-driven, adaptable solutions required in today’s marketplace.”
“To achieve efficiencies and leverage existing technology investments, many companies are rapidly shifting their focus from proprietary systems to open, standards-based systems,” said Les Trachtman, CEO, Active Endpoints. “By incorporating ActiveWebflow into its ActionWorks BPM product, Action delivers to its customers a seamless, flexible solution to include human driven interactions and decisions, while integrating the benefits of enterprise-class BPEL technologies.”
