K2 blackpoint™ beta released


6/23/2008

K2®, a division of SourceCode Technology Holdings, Inc., today released K2 blackpoint™ beta — software that allows users to quickly build workflow solutions and process-driven applications within Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

A free trial of K2 blackpoint beta can be downloaded at http://blackpoint.k2.com.

K2 blackpoint beta features drag-and-drop tools and a Microsoft Office-style designer, so even non-developers can create new business processes that span libraries, sites, server farms and organizations; manage approvals; and route documents and list items. In addition, users can assemble applications from information that already exists.

The full release of K2 blackpoint will also include a Silverlight-based designer, making it the only software to offer both thick- and thin-client tools for building solutions in SharePoint.

K2 blackpoint will be priced on a per-server model — $5,000 (U.S.) for up to 200 users, $10,000 for up to 500 users and $15,000 for unlimited users.

K2 blackpoint will provide unparalleled features, capabilities and affordability. And because K2 blackpoint is a subset of K2 blackpearl features and tools, it offers an upgrade path so organizations can grow their investment and add capabilities over time, if needed. K2 blackpearl is the centerpiece of the K2 platform for building process-driven applications.
