In January, Gartner analyst Michele Cantara released a report entitled "Who's Who in BPM Consulting and System Integration" that profiles 17 of the top BPM services organizations. As was mentioned, Gartner customers should already have access to the report; however, the report is available for $995 for organizations who do not have a subscription to Gartner reports.
Within the report, Michele explains that BPM consulting is a subset of Business Operations Improvement (BOI) consulting. As a subset of BOI, BPM consulting specifically is tied to downstream technology change. The report then plots the 17 profiled organizations on their Gartner Consulting Continuum based on each organization's capabilities. According to Gartner in order to be qualify for inclusion in the report:
The vendor must have a demonstrable track record in providing services to organizations to continuously improve or optimize their business processes, or to establish a BPM foundation to support their evolution to later phases of the BPM maturity model.
I am obviously thrilled Avio is included in the list as it includes some of the biggest and most respected names in consulting. As a relatively young company, being included with the likes of Accenture, Capgemini, and Deloitte validates the hard work we have done and continue to do for our clients. One of the benefits of focusing on BPM is that we are often involved in larger business transformation engagements where the success of the projects is spread across a number of vendors each with their own specialty. Often, we are engaged on projects where responsibility for the overall success is spread across multiple SIs each with their own specialization.
Our ability to deliver innovative and unique solutions to the complex process challenges of our clients is the cornerstone of the Avio value proposition. We don't provide contractors who simply do the tasks they are assigned. We provide consultants who are able to recognize and understand complex challenges and deliver outstanding results. As we move into 2010, it is amazing that some of us at Avio have worked with OracleBPM since it was FuegoBPM back in 2001. The experience we have gathered over a decade of implementations is unmatched. Our ability to guide customers through the potholes, speed bumps, and pit falls of BPM efforts is where we truly shine. Project results are where SIs should be measured and we think our track records speaks volumes. Looking forward into 2010, we expect this to be an exceptional year.
