    Ultimus Webinar: Traditional BPM Gives Way to Digital Process Automation

    Posted on: April 21, 2017

    This webinar is now over. View the recording.

    BPM is undergoing a profound change. Where cost savings were once the primary driver of BPM projects, the emphasis is changing to customer experience and, ultimately, to digital transformation.

    In this webinar, guest presenter and Forrester Research Vice President and Principal Analyst Rob Koplowitz will explain Forrester’s rationale for replacing “Business Process Management” (BPM) with “Digital Process Automation” (DPA) and how the digitization of all business functions – and turning data into insights that provide a better customer experience - is an imperative that will become the strategic differentiator of the future. 

    Usama Mehmood will present the Ultimus Composed Process Solutions vision of Digital Process Automation: Replacing today’s notion of business process automation – doing what we do today in electronic form – with a new notion – turning business processes into digital assets that can be composed and recomposed on demand for ongoing business transformation.

    Brian Patsy will provide specific, “real world” examples of the benefits and ROI of DPA, how new thinking and new tools can fulfill critical, unmet business needs faster and at a fraction of the cost of other approaches.

    Ultimus Announces Composed Process Solutions for Human Resources

    Posted on: June 24, 2016

    June 24, 2016  —  Ultimus announces the successful deployment of three new Composed Process Solutions-based processes for Human Resources:  New Employee Onboarding, Employee Separation/Termination, and Employee Salary Adjustment Approval.

    Composed Process Solutions (CPS) employs the principles of product line engineering and automated manufacturing to create a software “application factory” for BPM-based workflow solutions.  Instead of “handcrafting” one-off solutions using development tools like BPM Suites or Low Code development platforms, CPS allows implementers to simply describe solutions that are generated automatically in real-time from a standardized architecture and proven, optimized, and high-quality solution assets.  The result: Order of magnitude improvements in solution delivery time, quality, and cost.

    Ultimus Celebrates 20 Years of Business Process Management Leadership

    Posted on: September 16, 2014

    From Pioneering BPM Technology to Rapid Global Expansion and Industry Expertise, Ultimus Continues to Set Milestones as it Carries on its Founder’s Vision

    New York, NY – September 16, 2014 – Ultimus, a leading global provider of enterprise business solutions and developer of one of the most widely used business process management (BPM) software suites in the world, is celebrating the twentieth anniversary of its founding, marking twenty successful years of exceeding customer expectations by automating business operations in every major industry across the globe.

    A Game Changing Visionary

    Ultimus was founded in 1994 by Rashid Khan, a visionary who set out to build a company dedicated to improving the way businesses operated. Khan envisioned a new kind of workflow automation solution: a complete software suite that tightly integrated all necessary functionality and was intuitive and accessible to non-technical users. In 1994, when spreadsheets were all the rage, Khan held the belief that anyone who could use an Excel spreadsheet should be able to easily develop workflow processes. In contrast to existing products that were difficult to use and required sophisticated programming skills, Khan wanted a solution that would make solution deployments fast and cost-effective.

    With this idea in mind, Khan created Ultimus and helped pioneer the concept of the Business Process Management Suite. Two decades later, Ultimus continues this revolutionary role in the BPM industry.
