According to Gartner, Business Process Management (BPM) provides the greatest ROI opportunity of any IT initiative. This informative session will cover the power of BPM when used in conjunction with Microsoft products – both today and with the release of Office 2007 later this year. Included will be sample BPM applications, case studies of implementations, and a product demonstration of K2.net enterprise workflow for .NET.


Tightly integrated with all Microsoft products out of the box, K2 offers a “no to low-code” solution that enables you to quickly develop end to end processes that ensure accuracy, reduce time to completion, and provide comprehensive reporting throughout the process. Bottlenecks can readily be identified for rapid optimization, and a complete audit trail of all processes is maintained.


Demonstrations will include processing of an expense report using SharePoint and InfoPath, and BizTalk integration.
