Share Article

BPMS vendor releases rankings report from leading research institute, revealing best-in-class results in a highly competitive field including Appian, K2 and IBM.

Quadrant: Bizagi scored highest against 17 other BPM vendors in the Fraunhofer research.

To be rated Top Ranked product by a world-renowned software engineering institute is a milestone moment for Bizagi. I know first-hand from attending the Fraunhofer workshop just how rigorous the assessment process is.

Bizagi, the leading BPM platform provider, has released the detailed analysis that gave the company its top-ranked product rating last month.

The research, carried out by Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE), is designed to provide companies with a qualitative overview of the BPM market.

With a workforce of over 22,000, Fraunhofer is Europe’s biggest and most respected organization for applied research, operating a total of 66 institutes and independent research units.

The Fraunhofer BPM Study 2014, available both in English and its original German, provides potential BPM buyers with detailed breakdowns of Bizagi’s performance in 10 key areas.

The breadth of the report clearly differentiates Fraunhofer from similar studies. As well as the traditional functionality comparison, each vendor was also rated against non-functional aspects such as integration, usability and adaptability. All 18 BPM vendors were invited to a full-day performance assessment workshop where they were rated on their ability to deliver processes and apply tooling on the fly.

Here, Bizagi exceled in many areas, scoring well-above-average scores for process modeling (80.9%), model export (100%), ease of use (78%) integration (85.4%) and reporting (66.3%).

"To be rated Top Ranked product by a world-renowned software engineering institute is a milestone moment for Bizagi," says CEO Gustavo Gomez.

"I know first-hand from attending the Fraunhofer workshop just how rigorous the assessment process is. As a company, we are passionate about delivering quality software so I relished the challenge of putting Bizagi through its paces. We’re all delighted with the results."
