Bloor Research: Innovations is one of the Leaders in BRM Market

Immenstaad, Chicago, 09/21/2009 -

Bloor Research International, an independent technology research firm, positioned Innovations Software Technology, member of the Bosch Group, with its Visual Rules Enterprise Platform as one of the leaders in its September 2009 Business Rules Management Market Report.

This report evaluates 24 business rules platforms using 160 criteria and the results of interviews with each vendor’s product management team and reference customers.

The Business Rules Management (BRM) Market Report analyzes the strengths of the top 12 vendors offering BRM Systems. Bloor positions vendors in its bullseye assessment based on the characteristics of a champion, challenger, or innovator. A position nearer to the center of the bullseye is better.

Innovations is named as one of the overall clear leaders with a complete set of components expected in a BRMS and with a very intuitive, visual approach to managing rules. Innovations was evaluated by Bloor based on criteria related to the needs of both business and IT. Bloor views BRM as a concrete way of putting business in control of the operations without having to involve IT.
