The following press release was sent out yesterday:
PROMIS Solutions AG (PROMIS) announces today an agreement on cooperation with Business Process Transformations Group (BPTG).
PROMIS and the BPTG have signed today a memorandum of understanding about future joint operations to create a higher demand for their services and products around the world. Through this alliance PROMIS will become with their Enterprise Value Architect (EVA) Netmodeler an official Custodian of the 8 Omega Framework.
The intention of the cooperation is to establish a strategic alliance leveraging PROMIS strong expertise in this area with the right suite of products and BPTG skills in the area of methodology and implementation. BPTG’s existing Network of experienced Consultants coupled with a large Customer portfolio and PROMIS EVA product suite will generate a successful mix for both parties.

What does this mean?
Well PROMIS are currently developing a tool that is set to become the market leader in Enterprise Architecture - EVA Netmodeler (which I am currently evaluating). With the incorporation of the BPTG 8 Omega framework into that tool it will increase the footprint of organisations into which the tool can go. The BPTG will benefit from having their framework supported in an industry leading tool. One item of note is that all BPTG members will get instant access to this through the EVA Netmodeler server which will be hosted by BPTG. This will increase collaboration and, presumably, decrease timelines
From a process point of view this now gives a 'Software as a Service' implementation of a change model applicable across all industries using an acknowledged industry-wide standard.
That has to be good, right?
