Metastorm is a well-established BPM company that has been working aggressively to expand its capabilities and customer base over the past few years. The company acquired transaction-oriented BPM vendor CommerceQuest in October 2005. The acquisition has added CommerceQuest’s strong system-oriented processing power to Metastorm’s existing human-centric business process management suite. The results are a “roundtrip BPM??? suite of tools that cover the full process lifecycle and are applicable to a wide range of deployment scenarios. Release 7.0 incorporates the technology acquisition (branded as Metastorm Integration Manager) with the Metastorm BPM suite and adds a Microsoft SharePoint client, enhanced Business Activity Monitoring features and integration with external event management engines. In addition, ease of use and the user interface capabilities have been streamlined and updated. With five consecutive years of growth, a track record of profitability, and more than 1,200 customers in 41 countries, Metastorm has grown to become a solid leader in the BPM market.
