Thursday, April 28, 2011

K2 blackpearl was named a Finalist in the SharePoint Development Category for the Best of Tech·Ed 2011 awards.

Sponsored by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Magazine, DevProConnections and SharePointPro, the Best of Tech·Ed 2011 awards recognize companies that offer innovative products for the industry. The judges reviewed 334 products and services for the award and chose 47 finalists to be interviewed at the Microsoft Tech·Ed North America 2011 conference in Atlanta, Georgia on May 16, 2011.  Winners will be announced at an invite-only evening reception at the Georgia Aquarium on May 18. 

K2 blackpearl is workflow and BPM software for automating enterprise business processes, building SharePoint applications and integrating Microsoft solutions into SAP.

K2 is built on .NET and deeply integrated with Microsoft SharePoint and other technologies.  K2 replaces the complexity of traditional software development with easy-to-use, visual tools — enabling business people and technical people to collaborate and assemble process-driven applications that precisely fit the needs of the organization and grow with it over time.

Image“We received a record number of nominations this year — more than 300 — and determining an array of finalists from that large, diverse field was difficult,” said Jason Bovberg, senior editor at Windows IT Pro®. “The mix of products and services from year to year is ever-changing and exciting, and we feel that our 49 finalists represent highly distinguished products and services in their categories. 

"For all categories, as always, our judging process involves three criteria: strategic importance to the market, competitive advantage, and value to customers. Our winners will be particularly strong in those areas.”
