REDMOND, Washington — For the second year in a row, K2 blackpearl® is a Best of Tech·Ed North America Awards finalist for “SharePoint Development” product. K2 blackpearl won in this category last year.

K2 blackpearl (www.k2.com) is workflow and BPM software for building forms, automating business processes, building SharePoint applications and integrating Microsoft solutions into SAP and other line-of-business systems.

Sponsored by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Magazine, SharePointPro and DevProConnections, the Best of Tech·Ed awards coincide with the Microsoft Tech·Ed North America conference. The awards recognize companies that offer innovative products for the industry.

As a finalist, K2 blackpearl is also eligible to win "Breakthrough Product" and "Attendee’s Pick."

K2 blackpearl is designed to cut costs and streamline operations for medium to large businesses. It replaces the complexity of traditional software development with easy-to-use, visual tools, so process automation solutions become easier to create and faster to deploy.

A highlight of K2 blackpearl is the K2 Designer for SharePoint, a web-based, drag-and-drop designer that fosters collaboration and simplifies the composition of business applications.

Rules and policies ensure errors are eliminated, as K2 users work through their tasks via Web-based lists on their laptops or mobile devices. K2 reporting tools provide insight and foster better decision-making.

Winners will be announced June 14 at the conference in Orlando, Florida.
