Thursday 21st of October 2004

UK-based, The Program Management Group Plc (PMG) has announced a strategic partnership with the international EDA (Event Driven Architecture) vendor, Orbis Software. This partnership will see PMG utilising Orbis Software’s pure-play Business Process Automation solution, TaskCentre, by embedding the technology into its leading project, program and portfolio management (PPPM) application, Hydra 5.

When asked to comment on this partnership Heath Gray, Marketing Director for PMG highlighted the company’s rationale, “As a major player in the PPPM solution arena we need to proactively address both our client’s current and future requirements. Commercial pressures are greater today compared to five years ago and effective PPPM demands that the whole user community is aware of all aspects relating to their involvement the process, in real-time.” He continued, “Leveraging the extensive Business Process Automation capabilities of Orbis TaskCentre means that users of our application have an intuitive information system that ensures information is delivered to them before issues manifest into costly problems.”

The savings in developer time were also highlighted by Heath Gray as an advantage of this partnership, “Automation is and will become ncreasingly important element of next generation applications but this specialist functionality requires a great deal of developer resources. By integrating Orbis TaskCentre into Hydra we are able to provide our clients with market-leading Business Process Automation capabilities quickly and without any impact on the development timetable of our core product.”

Comment was also drawn from Philip Smith, Managing Director for Orbis Software “PMG are an excellent example of how easily application vendors can take advantage of Orbis technology. PMG saw the commercial advantages of embedding our technology and we look forward to working very closely with them to deliver their clients with the capabilities they demand.”
