Leading Independent BPM Tool Vendor Casewise Celebrates 20th Anniversary. Casewise lists an impressive lists of Industry firsts and announces the securing over over 100 additional new clients in the year to date. With product offerings in the EA and BPM space, Casewise has long been considered visionary.

What better way to celebrate your anniversary year than with the acquisition of more than 100 new clients.

Last week saw leading independent software tool vendor Casewise celebrate its 20th Birthday. The company which was incorporated on the 9th October 1989, when Inforem Ltd a UK based systems integration organization was acquired by Computer Science Corporation (CSC). The process modeling tools (BPM) business spun out of Inforem post acquisition formed the organization we know today as Casewise

Ever since, the name Casewise has become synonymous with Business Process Analysis, Business Process Management (BPM) and Enterprise Architecture (EA) and come to stand for an innovative leader in these areas of technology and business solutions.

In a market not best known for its staying power, many of the companies that Casewise has competed with over the years no longer exist as individual entities e.g. Popkin Software (now part of IBM), IDS Scheer (becoming part of Software AG), Holosofx (now part of IBM) and Proforma Corp (now part of Metastorm), and therefore in the BPM sector Casewise stands almost alone. This ability to stand alone and to continue to grow and be profitable is a testament to the strength of the company's vision and the loyalty of their extensive customer base.

Some of the industry firsts that Casewise has achieved over the years include:

  •     First Vendor to Deliver Business Process Modeling (BPM) tools (1989)
  •     First to Provide Simulation and Animation capabilities (1995)
  •     First to Ship a Bi-Directional Microsoft Visio interface (1998)
  •     First to Deliver Workflow Generation from a Modeling Tool (1998)
  •     First Vendor to Support BPMN Notation (co-creators)
  •     First Modeling Tool Vendor to Provide Users With an Open Repository
  •     First to Use a Commercial RDBMS for the underlying Repository
  •     First Modeling Vendor to Deliver eTOM Framework and Support
  •     First Modeling Tool to Deliver Delivering ITIL Support

And now, 20 years on, Casewise is still delivering those industry firsts, most recently with Corporate Synergy which has positioned Casewise as the first modeling tool vendor to offer customers their own process execution capabilities.

Casewise solutions are used by over 3,000 customers, in over 150 countries. Solutions are sold and supported through the company's own offices in the USA, UK, France, Germany and Belgium and through a network of 50+ partners across the globe.

Today, Casewise continues to lead the way in innovative technology and business solutions providing software and solutions for Business Process Analysis, Business Process Management (BPM), Enterprise Architecture and Governance, Risk & Compliance purposes. Only recently Alex Wentzo, Casewise COO for EMEA commented "This is a great time for our business; the strength of our balance sheet and our personnel means that we have been able to weather the economic storm and capitalize on opportunities that others were unable to take." Wentzo continues "What better way to celebrate your anniversary year than with the acquisition of more than 100 new clients."

While the staff certainly enjoyed a good party, clients were not forgotten either! At a recent user group meeting in the UK, two clients, Alcatel-Lucent and GE Money Bank shared the secrets of their successes in using Casewise to deliver some amazing results for their respective organizations.
