Cordys and CSC Form Strategic Alliance

23 September 2008

Cordys, a global leader in next generation Business Process Management (BPM), has formed a strategic alliance with CSC (NYSE: CSC), a global leader in providing technology-enabled solutions and services, bringing together two of the major players within the BPM sector.

The alliance will enable organisations around the globe to benefit from a new breed of innovative business process driven solutions, deployed on the Cordys Business Operations Platform (BOP), and implemented and optimised using the consulting, systems integration, delivery and application management expertise of CSC, a thought leader in BPM.

Cordys Business Operations Platform is a next generation BPM offering that delivers faster execution and improved speed of change compared to traditional offerings, allowing companies to fundamentally alter the way they innovate their business operations. It empowers companies to automate their business processes faster and more effectively through an integrated technology stack that allows the business direct control over the creation and management of business-critical processes. This provides the dynamic business agility organisations need to remain truly competitive in today’s ever-changing market environment.

Jan Baan, CEO of Cordys said: “The Cordys Business Operations Platform enables businesses to become more agile and responsive to change. It decouples the processes from the applications thus ensuring that existing IT investments can be fully utilised, by delivering business services when and where they are needed - on demand.”

Lemuel Lasher, President of Global Business Solutions and Services for CSC, commented: “Adaptable business processes that provide ready access to real-time information are a key ingredient for success today as companies face top- and bottom-line pressures from compliance mandates, as well as market dynamics that are driving merger, acquisition and divestiture activities. By coupling the BOP platform with our vertical industry and BPM expertise, we are uniquely employing real time information to power decision making and enable the real-time enterprise.”

Jan Baan added: “We look forward to teaming with CSC. The company’s extensive experience and expertise in global delivery of IT solutions makes CSC an ideal channel through which we can offer our unique Business Operations Platform.”
