COLUMBIA, MD August 16, 2004 Metastorm, a leading provider of Business Process Management (BPM) software for automating, managing, and controlling processes today announced general availability of e-Work 6.5, the latest version of its award-winning BPM software platform. Metastorm reinforces its market leadership position by delivering key features to enable its customers to realize greater process control, operational auditability, and business agility. New features in e-Work 6.5 include customizable executive dashboard portals, advanced business rules management, and assured delivery of process information through packaged adaptors to leading message queuing technologies. Other enhancements include support for the BPEL integration standard as well as customer requested features to support the extensibility and maintainability of the solution in large enterprise-wide deployments.

Metastorm e-Work is the only BPM solution that allows customers to find hidden efficiencies within intangible assets including human, IT and organizational capital, and leverage them to create optimized processes across the enterprise. e-Work 6.5 closes the gaps between these siloed assets, creating a unified system that complements the offerings of traditional platform and application vendors and provides organizations with the ability to realize increased productivity from people, applications and processes. Process is the key that unlocks the value of these intangible assets to yield better operational efficiency and profitability for the enterprise and ultimately increased revenue and growth.

Key highlights of e-Work Version 6.5 include:

Executive Dashboard and Real-Time Monitoring Building on the products existing Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) capability, users can now monitor and manage processes through an executive dashboard interface that provides an intuitive visual view of key process data. The dashboard will provide a comprehensive user interface from which executives, managers and process owners can monitor key performance indicators and drill-down into critical process alerts to take preventative or corrective action. e-Work Version 6.5 can monitor and present process data regardless of its origin allowing unmatched visibility into the entire process across departments, across applications and even across external organizations.

Advanced Business Rules Capability A supplement to Metastorms existing Rule Builder, the e-Work 6.5 Advanced Rules Module is built around the Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004 Rules Engine, enabling users to build and maintain rules in BizTalk and seamlessly use them in any e-Work process. Metastorms OEM relationship with Microsoft allows the company to embed, package and sell the BizTalk Server 2004 software providing a single vendor, best-of-breed option for customers. Automation of core business rules is critical to streamlining processes, improving productivity, and reducing errors. Centralized maintenance of complex business rules ensures consistency across processes and lowers the overall cost of ownership.

e-Work Message Queuing Adaptor Kit Provides a secure and assured way of sending documents and transitioning work within a process from one system to another by providing packaged integration to leading message queuing technologies. The guaranteed delivery of information is essential when e-Work is being used as a mission-critical application or is supplying information to mission-critical systems. Metastorm now offers the most comprehensive out-of-the-box message queuing options of any BPM solution, with support for Java Messaging System (JMS), Microsoft MQ (MSMQ), and IBMs WebSphere Messaging (MQ Series).

Business Process Execution Language Support e-Work Version 6.5 delivers support for the OASIS Business Process Execution Language (BPEL). Processes built in BPEL can be imported into e-Work, and processes built in e-Work can be exported as a BPEL process for use by other systems. BPEL is rapidly becoming an industry standard for business process system integration and is one of the key standards shaping the future interoperability of enterprise systems.

Enabling better and more timely analysis of current business processes, as well as enabling easy and rapid modification of them in response to such analysis is an important component of a good BPM solution, stated David Kelly, president of Upside Research, Inc. The dashboard interface possible with e-Work Version 6.5 will give Metastorm users better insight into critical process information, while the new message queuing and business rule maintenance features enable greater security and flexibility for automating and managing complex, mission-critical business processes across the enterprise.

In addition to the release of e-Work Version 6.5, Metastorm also recently announced a partnership with Hyperion to embed Hyperions robust business intelligence solution into the e-Work BPM suite for advance reporting and analysis. Metastorm also plans to release a Java version of its market-leading software developers kit (SDK) next month providing customers and partners with the flexibility of both a Microsoft and Java SDK to address disparate development needs.
