Skelta releases Skelta BPM.NET 2006

June 26, 2006 - Skelta today announced the release of Skelta BPM.NET 2006, the next generation of their award-winning BPM and Workflow Automation software. The new release of Skelta BPM.NET which was code-named 'Mars' features high-end BPM functionality for Human Workflow Services, support for multiple channels and forms for task delivery and execution, advanced calendar options, a revamped process designer with a Visio like look and feel, extensive BAM capabilities, advance queue support with out of the box and user configurable dispatch patterns, closer integration with Microsoft Office and many new usability features. With this release, Skelta moves towards BPMN compliance with support for several BPMN 1.0 standards.

Sanjay Shah, CEO, said "The new release is a broad-based BPM offering with advanced BPM features such as BPMN-compliant elements, queues, multiple channels and of course, enhancements to our core workflow engine. The name Skelta BPM.NET does better justice to the theme and the functionality in the new release. It encapsulates our objective of providing full-scale BPM functionality within this product while still maintaining our edge of being 100% embeddable in nature." This name change applies only to the new release and future versions; existing versions will continue to be referred by Skelta Workflow.NET.

With Skelta BPM.NET 2006, Skelta Software moves closer towards its goal of providing functionality for the entire spectrum of BPM requirements. The new process designer offers extensive features for process modeling with rich design experience on a browser, easy process definition, support for swim lanes and pools, and powerful customization. The queue feature and new calendar options offer advance level resource optimization and collaboration capabilities. The new queue feature in Skelta BPM.NET 2006 supports 34 industry standard algorithms for automatic task allocation to resources belonging to a common pool. The multi-level calendar feature lends maximum flexibility and precision in task scheduling. Skelta BPM.NET 2006 also incorporates features for easier enterprise application integration with intuitive user interfaces to define and import XML schema. Skelta BPM.NET 2006 features a full-fledged Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) capability. It has an exhaustive set of out-of-the-box reports on various business processes hosted on the workflow engine that provide instant insight into how IT events at workflow engine level will affect progress of high-level business transactions. This will permit real-time business-level decisions in response to system events and automate real-time notification of violation or pending violation of business-level policies. The dashboard presents business process performance statistics and advanced analysis features. Process Administrators can also configure data points for Key Performance Indicators (KPI).

Skelta BPM.NET 2006 also has changes at the framework level to facilitate migration to its next generation product, code-named, Aquila, which will use Microsoft's Workflow Foundation at the lowest level of integration. Arvind Agarwal, Skelta's CTO said, "In many ways, Skelta BPM.Net is a precursor to Aquila. The architecture of Skelta BPM.NET 2006 has significant changes to lay the ground for a seamless transition to the Windows Workflow Foundation."
