Fraunhofer puts Bizagi on top of IBM, Oracle & Appian in its 2014 BPM suite analysis

"The way people can build a process application in Bizagi is very impressive. It is much easier than with most other paltforms." Dr Adam

A total score of 70.3% has seen Bizagi BPMS top an independent study of BPM platforms for the second consecutive year, Bizagi announced last night.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE) in Kaiserslautern (Germany), an institute from Europe's largest and most respected research organization, reviewed 18 BPM systems and rated Bizagi as the top performer in a very strong field which included IBM, Oracle and Appian.

The report, BPM Suites 2014, reveals that Bizagi excelled in many areas including process modeling (80.9%), model export (100%), user comfort (78%) and integration (85.4%).

The simplicity of the Bizagi platform particularly caught the eye of the assessors. Fraunhofer’s Dr Sebastian Adam commented:

"The way people can build a process application in Bizagi is very impressive. It is much easier than with most other paltforms."

The rigorous assessment process comprised a one-day workshop during which suppliers were required to present their tool and walk through a range of simple and complex scenarios.

Fraunhofer IESE’s evaluation categories are wide-ranging, covering everything from process modeling and execution to systems integration and implementation.

"To be so highly recognized in the Fraunhofer research is a significant moment for Bizagi," says CEO Gustavo Gomez. "Our Top Product rating confirms our ability to deliver enterprise-level deployments at the highest level. Its rigor makes the Fraunhofer study a highly valuable tool for anyone facing the decision of which BPM platform to buy."
