With Gartner confirming that 60% company tasks cannot be predicted or modified in advance, it becomes clear that what is critical in BPM nowadays is not so much rapid application development as their instant modification and adaptation. That’s why the newly released version of the BPM/RAD platform for SharePoint by WEBCON allows business application delivery – and most of all, change management – virtually seamless.
For a keen observer of the SharePoint development trends it takes little effort to realise that yet swifter business application delivery, seamless adaptation to change and an even lower entry barrier for power users becomes more and more critical.
BPM looks towards handling the unstable
According to Gartner, less innovative BPM solutions (which e.g. do not ensure efficient change management) will prevent 80% of companies from reaching the desired objectives of their digital strategies in 2017. Gartner’s experts point out that only 40% of company tasks are routine enough to be handled with traditional BPM systems. The remaining 60% demonstrate a certain level of uncertainty and cannot be predicted or modified in advance. Gartner notes that in 2017, 70% of effective business models will be based on handling unstable processes, changing according to the needs of the clients.
As the winner of “Best SharePoint Solution” award by European SharePoint Community, and the Diamond Partner of ESPC for the third time in a row, WEBCON has been consequently moving onward with the trend.
Make change management instant
For over a decade now, WEBCON has been focused on creating the best platform for the fastest development of future-proof business applications for SharePoint. This year’s annual release of their BPM/RAD platform, WEBCON BPS 2017, brings forward plenty of new features and improvements, to directly address the specific needs of the users of SharePoint-based business management systems, regardless of whether they are just getting started, or already manage dozens of applications.
Based on the no-code and groundbreaking InstantChange™ technology, WEBCON BPS 2017 introduces, e.g.
- enhanced functionality and additional convenience in creating and modification of business apps with the brand new form behaviour rules engine and improved business rules engine,
- simplified access for external users in B2B scenarios – with new authentication applications using Google, LinkedIn and other providers,
- even more simplified, more re-usable and transparent integration with external systems.
The complete list of enhancements is quite extensive, and the above is but a handful of examples. You can read more here, and above all, try WEBCON BPS 2017 in action. Also, WEBCON’s tutorial videos demonstrate how quickly you can create business apps from scratch and introduce dynamic changes to ongoing workflow instances.
