APELDOORN, The Netherlands, April 21, 2011 - Software vendor Be Informed continues to grow. Especially in financial
services and public sector the Be Informed business process platform is being
used extensively. Because of the product's unique approach, customers achieve
significantly better results in terms of time to change and cost savings.
Analyst firm Forrester even calls these results orders of magnitude better
than with traditional business process management tools.

A different, strictly rules-based, technology approach needs to be
accompanied by a specific implementation method as well, based on modeling
principles such as Demo, Cogniam, Pronto and TOC. Because of the enormous
growth of Be Informed, there is an urgent need for more consultants and
architects with these specific skills. Be Informed has trained 250
consultants already.
