BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AURA (www.auraportal.com), a global provider of Business Process Management (BPM), has announced that its BPM Suite has been placed in a leadership position in the recent report, "Business Process Management Decision Matrix 2011", from the independent market analyst firm OVUM (Datamonitor Group). This report has highlighted AuraPortal amongst the most prestigious BPM vendors in the global market, including such vendors as IBM, Oracle, Appian and Pegasystems.
AuraPortal surpasses its competitors in all categories but one, "Vertical Specialization", and in the two most important aspects: "Product Quality" and "Value for Money", AuraPortal has obtained the highest score (9 points), situating itself clearly above the next best vendor on a scale of 1 to 10.
From a global perspective, AuraPortal is clearly the leader, with a score of 58.5 points in a competition where four of the nine candidates have scored less than 8 points, and the candidate following behind AuraPortal (Appian) has achieved only 35.5 points in total. According to OVUM, "AuraPortal's performance has been strong: its scores are consistently high for the User Sentiment dimension." The report also says that: "Even more interesting is AuraPortal's presence among enterprises with fewer than 5000 employees, traditionally a BPM blind spot for the larger vendors. This enterprise segment accounts for over 30% of AuraPortal's business, a higher percentage than that reported by any other vendor featured in this report."

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
