BELLEVUE, WA, Apr 25, 2013 K2 (K2.com) today announced several new features for K2 blackpearl, software that enables enterprises to build and run business applications, including forms, workflow, data and reports. K2 blackpearl 4.6.5 provides powerful new capabilities that make it easier to integrate applications with line-of-business systems and scale those applications according to an organization's needs.

"Connecting people to information is the issue every modern business is trying to solve," said Jake Braly, director of product marketing at K2. "To that end, K2 is focused on delivering visual tools for business applications that keep processes on track, serve up the right data, allow better collaboration and foster better business decisions.

"The latest updates to K2 blackpearl are all about increased speed, ease and power and making those efficiencies possible for a greater number of companies."

New K2 blackpearl 4.6.5 features include:

-- Endpoint Service Broker: A K2 service broker allows customers to integrate applications with any line-of-business system via Web Services, WCF Endpoints and .NET assemblies. The broker allows for complex type support using serialization objects, and it ensures a customer can integrate with more line-of-business systems than ever before.

-- SmartWizard framework: Utilizing K2's SmartObject framework, customers can create declarative K2 wizards against SmartObject methods, providing a quick, no-code way to extend K2 workflow functionality.
