Dralasoft, Inc. announced the release of Dralasoft Workflow 3.0, the newest version of its well-known Business Process Management (BPM) software. Leading the improvements in Version 3.0 is an extensive new SOAP interface that can be used to invoke Workflow Engine as a web service, enabling business partners to seamlessly collaborate in mission-critical workflows via the web.

Web services are increasingly seen as the next-and possibly ultimate-use of the Internet to realize business process efficiencies. Whit Andrews, research director for Gartner, says in his report "Predicts 2004: Web Services", "...the service-oriented architecture (SOA) that Web services enables will provide an ideal setting for a new class of business applications called service-oriented business applications. By using service-oriented business applications, SOAs can, in turn, use Web services so that business processes can occur in real time. This will be a boon for enterprises that want integration with business partners to be easier and faster."

Dralasoft Workflow 3.0 capitalizes on its SOA capability by enabling business units and/or trading partners to integrate common workflow technology into any major production situation. Document management, task management, claims processing, e-commerce, and supply chain management are just some of the ways in which Workflow 3.0 can save time, manpower, and cost in distributed environments.

"Dralasoft Workflow 3.0 carries significant benefits for the next wave of business process collaboration," said Richard Rogers, Vice President of Business Operations for Dralasoft, Inc. "With Web services just beginning to fuse applications and information in new and exciting ways, companies will soon be looking for ways to optimize all kinds of business procedures. Workflow 3.0 is fully capable of coordinating and leading the charge."

Web Forms Support
Also new to Workflow 3.0 is a new process for creating web forms, the class of online interface that includes order forms, claims documents, employee benefits information, and other fill-in-the-blank data entry. In the past, designers wishing to add a form to a BPM routine had to build the form outside the application, then map it to Workflow Engine. With Workflow 3.0, designers can now describe the form within Workflow Studio, after which the module automatically creates and maps the form to the engine.

Another major improvement to Workflow in version 3.0 is enhanced scalability through the use of replication and clustering techniques. By supporting greater scalability across a wide range of business processes, Workflow 3.0 can handle a greater number of users and a more sophisticated level of BPM than ever before.

Comprehensive BPM Solution
Dralasoft creates standards-based BPM/workflow technology that reduces the complexity and costs of integrating business processes into applications and frameworks. It consists of:

  • Workflow Engine. An optimized runtime Java component providing the capabilities needed in a mission-critical production environment. It offers caching, thread-pooling, persistence, clustering, load balancing, and notification. The Engine is a scalable component with the ability to be deployed on multiple servers as a cluster.
  • Workflow Studio. A visual design environment for developing workflows by dragging and dropping predefined tasks. Due to its flexibility and intuitive interface, the Studio can be used by programmers and business analysts alike. The Studio is customizable to enable integration into existing applications via XML.
  • Workflow Manager. Provides monitoring and management services to support mission-critical deployments, including isolating bottlenecks in workflows, gathering and analyzing statistics, and reporting.
Best of Show at AIIM 2004
Dralasoft Workflow won "Best BPM/Workflow Product" honors at the second annual AIIM E-DOC Magazine 2004 Best of Show Awards in New York City. The award, presented during a special industry reception March 9 during the AIIM 2004 Conference and Expo, recognizes currently available products that provide exceptional functionality, efficiency, and return on investment for users. The AIIM E-DOC Magazine 2004 Best of AIIM Awards were judged by a panel of 20 industry experts comprised of users, analysts, and consultants.
