K2 can help building assistive process applications that provides entire life cycle management capabilities for your domain. Entire Employee management solutions can be built on K2 providing end-to-end management and integration of employee related business processes with back end data and LOB systems. You can have 360 degree view of your employee data by using K2 Smart Objects.

K2 have made investments in integration to Active Directory, Exchange and Microsoft CRM from within the K2 process designers. This allows for simple drag and drop integration essential to building tightly integrated applications in the microsoft environment. Employee on-boarding and off-boarding applications are a sample for how this technology can be put to good use. The real leverage comes in the use of K2 in building Case Management applications leveraging the rich set of K2’s APIs and the framework.

1230 rocks

I finished a complete install of a K2 load balanced distributed production clusters integrated with SharePoint farm, a staging and a dev environment update this week. The 1230 installer was awesome.

While everyone is excited about the cool new viewflow (which is really cool) I think the installer team should be congratulated for making my life easier – cheers!! :)

K2 update KB1230 is here

This is an exciting update for me as this provides some new features I wanted:
1. Create Folders inside document libraries.
2. Process Scheduler from within SharePoint Process Portals
3. Reuse of inline functions and RegEx
4. AD wizards
5. SmartObject Services

There is more to this update including bug fixes. But, I am quite happy with these feature sets as this will reduce the amount of code I will have to write and maintain. It also saves me time during design time. good one! get it here
