PRN: Be Informed 'Disruptive Technology' According to OVUM
Be Informed 'Disruptive Technology' According to OVUM
APELDOORN, The Netherlands, May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
OVUM, the global analyst firm, has devoted a recentÂ 'On The Radar'Â report to Be Informed. Chief Analyst, Joe Dignan believes Be Informed's solutions can have a disruptive impact on traditional processes, providing organizations with the unique ability to model policy and respond to political or economic imperatives.
Dignan writes: "The 'Holy Grail' for public sector IT is a single view of a citizen across multiple departments, be it benefits, health, tax, or pensions. This arena is sometimes described as Â´next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP)Â´. Current process mapping for workflow is labor intensive, time consuming, and inflexible. Be Informed's solutions have the potential to be a disruptive technology as they provide an applied expert shell where the client controls the policy so that each instance going through the system travels by its own unique path that is automatically discarded on completion. This provides customers with the unique ability to model policy and respond to political or economic imperatives."
Gordon McKenzie, Global Head of Public Sector Solutions at Be Informed, says: "We are pleased how OVUM recognizes the impact that Be Informed solutions can have, in this particular case in the public sector. It becomes increasingly clear that the transformation that the next generation of business applications brings is going to be as significant as cloud computing or the consumerization of IT. Be Informed is known for its extreme flexibility, speed of implementation and cost reduction, all major themes in the public sector."
Â´On the RadarÂ´ is part of OVUM's series of research notes that highlights up-and-coming vendors that bring innovative ideas, products, or business models to their markets.
