Financial Crisis Front Line: SNS Bank is Finalists in 2009 BPM Global Awards

As previously posted, my chapter in this publication was nominated for the 2009 BPM Global Awards. Surviving the Financial Crisis Front Line: SNS Bank is the story of jBPM as it continues to help the SNS Bank in these tough times.

The finalists have been announced and our jBPM solution at the SNS Bank has been selected for the European region:

Europe
  • Faculty of Manufacturing Technologies, TUKE, Slovakia nominated by Czestochowa University of Technology, Poland
  • Homeloan Management Limited (HML), UK nominated by Lombardi Software, USA
  • SNS Bank IT, Netherlands nominated by Red Hat, Netherlands
  • Swisscard AECS AG, Switzerland nominated by Action Technologies Inc., USA
This year the Awards Ceremony will be presented in a virtual format with the Gold and Silver winners announced in a special webinar on Tuesday November 24, 2009 chaired by Derek Miers, lead judge.

Awards Director Layna Fischer commented on the strength of the entries, especially those implementations with BPM and workflow extending beyond corporate boundaries to support customers, suppliers and trading partners. “We received a record number of high-quality entries in the North America region,” said Ms Fischer. “World-wide, the trend continues to increase of successful integration of multiple systems.”

Keep your fingers crossed on the 24th of November! I wonder if President Obama had anything to do with this (with thanks to Tom for image)?
