Fujitsu Announces General Availability of Interstage Business Process Manager Analytics V12Combines Automated Business Process Discovery, Monitoring and Analysis to Provide Visibility and Intelligence to End-to-End Business Processes (February 07, 2012)
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/12 -- Fujitsu today announced general availability of Interstage(R) Business Process Manager Analytics (BPM Analytics) V12, the latest edition of its business process discovery, monitoring and analysis software. Delivering the next generation of process intelligence to the enterprise, Interstage BPM Analytics seamlessly integrates Automated Process Discovery -- a groundbreaking technology developed by Fujitsu Labs -- with real-time process monitoring and alerting and sophisticated analytics to cost-effectively deliver exceptional levels of process visibility and intelligence.
"Process improvement is vital across the enterprise to increase productivity, lower costs, gain competitive advantages and improve the customer experience," said Tsune Yoshizawa, Senior Vice President, Platform Products at Fujitsu. "Until now, these initiatives have required considerable manual effort for process investigation, and companies have been unable to sufficiently visualize key processes in sales and operations management, customer interactions, and internal accounting. Interstage BPM Analytics changes all that, making it easy for users to automatically gather process intelligence around all their key processes, identify actual or potential process trouble-spots, and target specific areas for improvement and optimization."
Interstage BPM Analytics combines the Fujitsu Automated Process Discovery with real-time process monitoring and alerting. Automated Process Discovery, a groundbreaking technology developed by Fujitsu, has been used by the Fujitsu services group to provide more than 70 global companies with the visibility they require to dramatically improve their processes and achieve significantly improved business results. The technology, which automatically generates process flowcharts using business system logs without impacting any production systems, eliminates the need for traditional manual process discovery, which is often subjective, costly and time-consuming. The resulting fact-based process flows can be used to easily identify process bottlenecks and their root causes, and analyze such issues as processing times and cost.
Interstage BPM Analytics can be deployed across different systems and organization silos to provide end-to-end process intelligence. It can be deployed onto both the BPM orchestrated processes and non-BPM orchestrated processes in systems such as SAP and Oracle ERP.
"Combining business process discovery and analytics into a single, easy-to-use solution is an important step in the right direction. Business process analytics gives end users the ability to identify and understand the most important processes and tasks," said Maureen Fleming, Program Vice President, Business Process Management and Middleware at IDC. "The ability to have an end-to-end view of the actual business processes and also to track worker productivity and workloads is important to end user organizations and can impact productivity, agility, competitiveness, and profits."
Features and Benefits Summary
- Uses logs from business systems and database data to automatically generate flowcharts to fully and accurately visualize business processes. Even when systems straddle multiple business operations, or in situations that have required human mediation between systems, the system logs and data can be captured, collated, and expressed using the patented technology of Automated Process Discovery.
- Eliminates the time required for onsite inspection as well as the influence of preconceptions and subjectivity.
- Provides easy-to-use analysis tools that speed identification of problem areas in business processes. Through simple and intuitive controls, users can pinpoint specific processes and view a wide range of metrics, such as process frequency, process lead time averages, and deviations by type, and number of steps per path.
- Provides alert notifications when threshold values are crossed.
- By continually monitoring underlying data, quantifies the impact of business-process improvements.
- Enables staff without specialized training to obtain sophisticated process analysis.
- Uses Smart Setup, based on the proprietary Fujitsu Smart Software Technology, to automatically optimize network settings needed for deployment and memory allocation, simplifying the deployment process and getting customers up and running quickly.
Interstage BPM Analytics V12 is also being made available worldwide through an OEM agreement with CA Technologies.
