IDC Russia research findings
Based on the IDC Russia research findings "Software for content management organization in Russia 2013", Business Logic has joined the ranks of Russian market leaders.
According to IDC, all Business Logic solutions fit the "box version", which means that implementation of such solutions does not require time and financial expense for additional functionality development. This allows large-scale implementations and appears to be the company's main competitive advantage.
According to IDC Russia research findings, in 2012, the size of Russian content management software market increased $142 million at suppliers' values. The IDC forecast for this market for 2013, despite of the deterioration of the economic environment, is 12% growth.
In 2013, Business logic company realized 88 scale projects for various ECM solutions implementation - from introduction of "classic" EDMS's to specialized data electronic warehouse creation for major telecom, energy, oil and gas companies, and financial and state institutions.
At Rosneft-Uchet, operation with primary financial documentation was optimized. As a result of the project, labor on filling in documents has drastically decreased. Now, adopted documents are scanned and recognized at input check points, a range of information correctness tests are carried out automatically, and instead of several days, the document is processed in just a minute.
A single financial documents electronic warehouse was created at JSC Transneft, integrated with the account system. This allowed saving employees' time substantially due to minimization of manual operations and automation of documents processing routine work. Preparation of document collections for regulating authorities was also simplified.
These projects are realized using the "Digital data warehouse logic. Financial documents" solution, which is built on ABBYY FlexiCapture and IBM FileNet platforms.
Among the "EDMS logic" solution major implementation projects are the Uralvagonzavod projects, and also replacement of the Documentum system with the "EDMS logic" in MTT.
Strategic partnership with IBM
In accordance with operation results in 2013, Business Logic has joined the TOP 100 IBM best partners in Russia, and along with I.T. Group won the "Best integrator for IBM software solutions" award. Granting of this award is associated with the company's success in the area of IBM FileNet-based platforms solution development and realization a number of large-scale projects for data electronic warehouses creation on this platform.
All shaped plans on development of new solution "EDMS logic", "Digital data warehouse logic. Financial documents" and "ECM logic. Business platform" versions were realized. The "road map" for the "ECM logic" product line development has been approved until the end of 2015.
In the near future, production of the "EDMS logic" first version is planned on the Alfresco free software platform.
"Our product strategy for 'box version' solutions development has proved its value: customers want faster and cheaper implementation for ECM solutions rather than its customization," comments Business Logic Director General Viktor Vaynshtein on the annual results. "Content management processes, which are automated by us, allow companies to reduce costs and increase the efficiency of activities as a whole. Customers know this fact, so we are looking optimistically towards 2014, hoping that our business will continue growing."
