"This phase of our planned integration is significant because it allows workflow users to review information stored and managed by Lotus Notes," said Jay Hilnbrand, president of Universal Document Management Systems. "Ultimately, we plan to extend the integration so Notes users will be able to create and participate in Step2000 work processes through their traditional Notes environment."
According to Delphi Consulting Group, Inc., a Boston consultancy specializing in the workflow market, Step2000 is a "best-of-breed" client/server workflow product. "The Step 2000 architecture provides the ability to work with a virtually unlimited variety of DBMS products or multiple DBMS products concurrently," said Tom Koulopoulos, Delphi's president. "This is especially helpful in integrating legacy DBMS repositories with newer client/server applications."
