I have mentioned before that Microsoft is setting itself up as a platform company – Dynamics for business, Office for individuals, etc – to encourage companies to build industry-specific applications on its technology. Now I see that business process management (BPM) is another target – Microsoft Business Process Alliance. One of the companies mentioned, Sourcecode, is South African and better known for its product K2.net.
I do wonder though how long it will be before Microsoft comes up with its own BPM solution, and its partners become its competitors?
