REDMOND, Washington (PRWEB) May 29, 2012
K2 and KnowledgeLake today announced a strategic partnership that will deliver powerful, integrated business process management (BPM) and enterprise content management (ECM) solutions on the Microsoft SharePoint platform.
K2 offers a complete software platform for automating enterprise business processes, building SharePoint workflows and integrating Microsoft-based business solutions into SAP and other line-of-business systems.
The 2011 Microsoft Partner of the Year for Content Management, KnowledgeLake provides enterprise scalable and comprehensive SharePoint ECM solutions for searching, viewing, securing, routing and annotating electronic content.
Partnered together, K2 and KnowledgeLake are able to marry their industry-leading BPM and ECM capabilities into an integrated, end-to-end solution that allows users to find and use content within the context of a business process or workflow. That means users can focus on the task they are performing and access the documents and information they need from within the business application they are using. So they get the right information at the right time, while maximizing productivity.
“Document management and business process management naturally go hand in hand together.” Tom Postulka, Director of Business Development at KnowledgeLake said. “The benefits of using SharePoint for document management and imaging have a proven strong return in investment, but these benefits really accelerate when workflow is applied to document centric processes. We often hear from our customers how enhancing their systems with BPM initiatives produced exponential returns. Combining the robust KnowledgeLake and K2 products and expertise has allowed us to provide a comprehensive, end-to-end solution for our customers. This is a very exciting time for our companies and the SharePoint platform in general.”
Typical solutions include Accounts Payable, Employee Onboarding, Contract Management and Insurance Claims. Because the solutions are fully-integrated with SharePoint, they are easy to implement, easy to administer, present low risk, and are cost effective. Not surprisingly, KnowledgeLake won the award for Best Solution for SharePoint at Microsoft TechEd 2011.
“We see significant adoption by customers around SharePoint as a content and application platform for a range of business critical applications,” Dave Marcus, K2’s VP of Global Alliances said. “When this happens, these customers expect to be able to deliver business solutions on this platform very quickly, be able to easily change and evolve these solutions as business needs change, while keeping lifecycle management costs as low as possible. K2 and KnowledgeLake provide key capabilities that make this possible.”
