Wipro Technologies, Ultimus Address Business Process Management Needs

4/29/2004 - Wipro Technologies, the global IT services division of Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT) and Ultimus, the leading provider of complete business process management (BPM) and workflow automation solutions, announced a joint partnership to leverage the Ultimus BPM Suite as a flagship product within Wipro’s Center of Excellence (CoE) for BPM.

Through this partnership, Wipro will offer its customers direct access to the BPM solution best suited for their environment. Built on Microsoft’s .NET architecture and easily integrated with common Microsoft Office applications, the Ultimus BPM Suite has a proven track record of reducing the time needed to complete the manual steps inherent in people-centric processes. In addition to the CoE, Wipro and Ultimus will partner on customer engagements by sharing the service responsibilities and by providing customers with direct access to their resources and their deep knowledge base for maximizing IT and BPM investments.

“In today's business environment, organizations are increasingly interested in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of their processes and BPM is a rapidly evolving category that offers solutions that inter-connect the disparate islands of sophisticated software applications within an enterprise ensuring synergy across people, processes and systems,” said Divakaran Mangalath, CTO of Wipro Technologies. “For our customers who run their businesses on Microsoft platforms, the Ultimus BPM Suite will prove to be the first choice for business process management. We are very excited that through this partnership we will be able to help our customers increase productivity and profitability, and avoid many of the operational inefficiencies that have befallen other organizations.”

“Increasingly, companies are realizing the importance of placing processes first as opposed to a myriad of point solutions,” said Rashid Khan, co-founder and CEO, Ultimus. “Through our presence in Wipro’s Center of Excellence and cooperative engagements, we will be able to foster a greater awareness for how BPM can be successfully leveraged to create a framework for competitive advantage.”
