“Today’s economic climate and the influence of the Web have made it almost impossible to build a strategy that extends beyond one or two years.” Jan Baan, Founder, Executive Chairman and CEO of Cordys, stated: “True business innovation needs a different approach that allows for rapid implementation, short time to market and a continuous improvement cycle. The Cordys Business Operations Platform makes it possible to leverage existing investments in enterprise software, portal platforms, content management, middleware and business intelligence, by making them accessible to knowledge workers, enabling new revenue opportunities to be exploited faster and more efficiently.”

The new release of the Cordys Business Operations Platform also brings significant enhancements in the areas of BPM modeling, integration, security, governance and usability. Jon Pyke, Chief Strategy Officer of Cordys, said: “With the new release of the Cordys Business Operations Platform, Cordys strengthens its next generation BPM Suite and increases support of standards and interoperability – additions which we strongly believe will further improve customer ROI. Users of our platform will be able to more effectively create a total solution to handle both system and human centric process management”.
