Featured Report: Deep Analysis Vendor Profile

Leading information and process management research and advisory firm Deep Analysis published a vendor profile calling Ultimus “one of the most comprehensive and well-thought-through digital process management systems on the market”.

Deep Analysis founder and analyst Alan Pelz-Sharpe stated that the Ultimus Digital Process Automation Suite “has developed into a deep system with an exceptionally broad range of functionality, frameworks, and features”.

Mr. Pelz-Sharpe, a 25-year technology veteran and co-author of the book 'Practical Artificial Intelligence: An Enterprise Playbook’, described Ultimus’ key differentiators: the wide range of pre-configured composable assets that accelerate deployments, user- and role-based task allocation, RPA functionality, and Adaptive Discovery, the patented architecture designed to bridge the “as is” to “to be” transition. An expert in Blockchain, he also recognized Ultimus’ built-in blockchain anchoring capabilities, essentially allowing quasi-smart contracts to be incorporated into business processes.

Leigh Michl, Ultimus Chairman & CEO, said “it means a lot that someone of Alan’s caliber has acknowledged our vision – to create a platform for strategic automation of critical and complex processes, rather than tactical, point automation”.

- Ward-Dutton, Neil. (2018). Ultimus: Industrialising process digitization. MWD Advisors.

“The only vendor today that really understands the value of people and how people create, manage and own process. It is this philosophy and expertise that has made the company a world leader in BPM."


“[Ultimus] provides the means for applications to hash and encode process outcome information to a blockchain, thereby providing a timestamped digital fingerprint of that outcome which can subsequently be independently verified to elicit evidence of its existence in that state, at that time – and so providing a distributed, transparent audit trail of business process transactions amongst multiple parties.”

- Wentworth, Craig. (2018). Blockchain for business: Vendor landscape. MWD Advisors.

“Ultimus is an especially good fit for buyers that:
-Seek Microsoft-based products. Over the years, Ultimus has resisted moving to J2EE and remains solidly in Microsoft's camp. The software is based on Microsoft platforms, and is well integrated with BizTalk, Sharepoint and Office.
-Are based outside the US, or have global operations. Ultimus' work portal supports a remarkable number of languages — 20 in total — and the company has far-flung offices and a strong partner network across the world. The vendor's large customer base helps ensure its ability to provide good support on a global basis."

- Connie Moore, Digital Clarity Group

"Ultimus is a no-code BPM product, meaning that, in the majority of applications, there really is no code written by any developers."

- Simon Holloway, Bloor
