January 27, 2012, Moscow. The IT market guru Tagir Yapparov (Chairman of the Board of Directors of I.T. Group) and Maria Kamennova (the former General Director of IDS Scheer Russia and Software AG Russia), having united their competences, experience and possibilities, are launching a new project − a consulting company "Business logics 2.0".
- The combination of the Russian market's leading ECM and BPM competences within the framework of "Business Logics 2.0" will give the customers a possibility to fully use the advantages of ECM + BPM integration.
- The head of the new company is Maria Kamennova.
- The head of ECM practice is Georgy Podbutsky, the leader of BPM practice is Andrey Koptelov.
- "Business Logics 2.0" united the companies I.T. Information management, BOSS-Referent and the team of leading consultants of "Business Logics" first version.
- Within the framework of the project, the latest business processes management instruments of BPM 2.0 class will be marketed in Russia, in particular, the S-BPM methodology and the Metasonic software product.
The new version of "Business Logics" will be working within the framework of modern tendencies to use efficient and flexible solutions to manage the enterprise corporate content (Enterprise Content Management, ECM) and manage and automate business processes (Business Process Management, BPM).
"The business processes of enterprises are not fully covered by accounting systems which most enterprises have implemented, noted Tagir Yapparov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of I.T. Group. − What is more, accounting systems are not adapted to non-structured information management. That's why companies fail to achieve really complex automation of their activity. New approaches of business processes automation and management of non-structured information allow to do what lies outside the framework of accounting systems. And this is 80% of the company's content and business processes. At the same time, the business processes, automated by accounting systems, are not flexible enough to quickly change them in response to market requirements. Meanwhile, according to Gartner's research, when systems of business processes automation are implemented, two thirds of enterprises are planning to introduce changes in the processes at least twice a year, and 18% need changes every month".
New approaches to business processes automation and management of non-structured information are connected with integration of corporate content management tools and business processes management. The world's leading industry analysts, Gartner, Forrester and IDC, have singled out ECM and BPM integration into a separate market trend, considering it a relevant trend of the global IT market. The "Business Logics 2.0" company has everything necessary to work within the framework of this trend.
I.T. Group is a leader of the Russian IT market in the sphere of development and implementation of ECM solutions for processing, storage and management of corporate content, including non-structured information. I.T. Group has been dealing with ECM questions for many years, it is developing one of the leading electronic document flow systems on the Russian market, "BOSS-Referent", it carries out large-scale projects related to creation of electronic repositories of non-structured information and its management in state structures, Russia's largest oil and telecommunication companies.
The team that made up a consulting company "Business Logics" (which became a Russian subdivision of IDS Scheer in 2005, and later − Software AG), rightly enjoys the reputation of a pioneer of the Russian BPM market. The core of this team, the leading consultants of the former "Business Logics", became a part of the new company.
The combination of these teams and their experience makes the "Business Logics 2.0" a unique innovational structure that works at the junction of management and information technologies and uses the latest trends and developments of the global IT market. "Business Logics 2.0" is positioned as a trusted adviser in the sphere of ECM, BPM, organization of process management, integration of applications within the framework of business processes, business analytics and operational controlling.
"Unification of competences within the framework of the new "Business Logics" will allow our customers to fully use the advantages of ECM and BPM integration, − comments Maria Kamennova, General Director of "Business Logics 2.0". − First of all, efficient content management within the framework of business processes greatly increases their performance. This is the influence of ЕСМ on BPM. Secondly, the present-day ECM instruments radically change the methods of office workers functioning, allowing them to act in the way it was impossible to do before. That's why implementation of ECM instruments requires simultaneous organization of new business processes. And this is the influence of BPM on ECM. We are developing a special methodology of process-oriented implementation of ECM solutions which results in better operational efficiency of business processes, especially those connected with the document flow".
Within the framework of the project "Business Logics 2.0", the latest instruments of BPM 2.0 class business processes management are being marketed in Russia, and they allow to automatically convert the process model into a working application. The use of Subject-oriented BPM instruments (Metasonic products) considerably increases the speed of business processes automation and introduction of changes into them. "The Metasonic package and the S-BPM methodology which serves as its basis is a revolution in BPM, asserts Herbert Kindermann, General Director of Metasonic AG. − S-BPM helps companies to introduce changes into business processes so quickly that it is literally done in the wink of an eye. Such speed of changes management considerably increases business efficiency and adaptability. We see a huge potential in presenting S-BPM solutions on the Russian market as they will provide companies with due flexibility, transparency, and a possibility of real-time response in combination with high ROI which is achieved within very short terms".
