INTERNATIONAL Data Corporation (IDC) has named Oracle, a leader in its “IDC MarketScape: Business Process Platforms 2011” report.
According to the report, “Oracle was named a leader in this IDC MarketScape because of its technical functionality as a platform, sophisticated user interface, business functionality in its process layer, and business execution capabilities. We believe Oracle is a very strong option for enterprises investing strategically in BPM automation technology.”
This IDC report assesses the capabilities of vendors to support mid-range to complex process improvement scenarios. BP platforms provide development and runtime environments to improve and automate a wide range of processes and support advanced use cases around orchestration, case management, process interoperability, end-to-end process monitoring, and event-driven process management. That means BP platforms are capable of combining people- and system-centric use cases.
IDC’s MarketScape assessment model balances the strategy of vendors with their current capabilities.
