Trend-Setting Product of the Year
Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 24, 2009
Lombardi, a leader in business process management (BPM) solutions, today announced that its flagship BPM suite, Teamworks® 7, has been awarded a 2009 "Trend-Setting Product of the Year" by KMWorld Magazine.
"The KMWorld 'Trend-Setting Products' awards represent the leaders in software and systems innovations," said Hugh McKellar, editor-in-chief at KMWorld magazine. "The products selected deliver customer value and are most likely to be embraced by the marketplace and gain wide adoption."
Lombardi received the KMWorld award due to the innovations that Teamworks 7 offers in terms of helping companies exponentially expand BPM adoption throughout the organization by increasing collaboration, governance, reuse and simplifying tasks across the entire process development lifecycle.
KMWorld's "Trend-Setting Products" awards began in 2003, and represent the software and systems innovations that have expanded the reach and effectiveness of information management. This year, more than 800 products were assessed by the judging panel, which consists of editorial staff, analysts, system integrators, vendors, line-of-business managers, and users. The products selected all demonstrate clearly identifiable technology breakthroughs that serve the vendors' full spectrum of constituencies, especially their customers.
"We're pleased that Teamworks 7 has been recognized as being 'a trend setter' by KMWorld," said Phil Gilbert, Lombardi's president. "This award speaks directly to Lombardi's leading role in continuing to deliver high-value BPM solutions that support our customers' mission-critical business process improvement programs."
This award is one in a series of recognitions that Lombardi and Teamworks has received in 2009. In February, Lombardi was positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant of the published report "2009 Magic Quadrant for Business Process Management Suites"* by independent analyst firm Gartner, Inc. Similarly, in June the Lombardi product portfolio was reviewed by Butler Group and published as a Technology Audit.
