An interesting article discussing the combination of Metastorm offerings. Unusually this one has ignored the spoon-fed hyperbole, and actually gives some real technical opinions for a change:
The merger with ProVision is part of the way Metastorm can broaden their coverage as the BPM market reaches its first plateau of consolidation. Metastorm have developed a marketing strategy based on the theme "Mind The Gap". The first Gap is between those involved in carrying out Strategy & Enterprise Architectures and Process Analysis & Optimisation, which Metastrom sees resulting in understanding a business without improving it. The second Gap is between Process Analysis & Optimisation and Process Execution & Management, which results in a blueprint without any realised value. The final gap completes the circle and is between Process Execution and Management and Strategy and Enterprise Architectures, which leads to change without visibility into the impacted areas and thus sub-optimal results. For the more cynical inclined of you, you might notice that this strategy reflects exactly the task facing Metastrom to integrate the Enterprise product set together!
