New Alliance of two Leading BPM Consulting Companies
Enterprise Integration, Inc, USA, and Leonardo Consulting, Australia, announced today an alliance
which will combine the complementary expertise and methods of two leading boutique consulting
companies in the area of Business Process Management (BPM).
Besides the fact the two companies have been founded in 1999, benefited from strong links to
universities, experienced impressive growth and are similar in size, they are both well-known vendors
of BPM service offerings based on the internationally recognized ARIS methodology.
Tom Gulledge, Managing Director of EII, identifies the common focus on the delivery of customer-
centered and methodological sound BPM solutions as the critical foundation for the strengths of this
alliance. “In addition, I believe that the road-tested experiences of the Leonardo team in all facets of
contemporary BPM and in a diverse set of industries will provide a meaningful extension of EII’s
offerings. As such, we found in Leonardo Consulting the perfect partner to provide even more
comprehensive BPM solutions for our customers.”
In return, Leonardo Consulting will benefit from EII’s proven track record in the public sector and its
unique capabilities in the consistent integration of management, processes and data. “Business
Process Management is now recognized as a fundamental paradigm for the design of organizations
and enterprise architectures. It is our responsibility to provide our customer base with the most
advanced BPM solutions so they can achieve an optimal utilization of current methods and systems.
We see the comprehensive set of EII’s methodologies as a valuable addition to the portfolio of our
consulting products” characterizes Chris Nagel, Managing Director of Leonardo Consulting the
advantages of this alliance for the Australian counterpart.
The near term goal of the alliance will be the consolidation of the synergistic BPM methodologies
and solutions of both organizations. Based on this combined BPM capability, EII and Leonardo
Consulting intend to jointly develop new solutions in areas such as BPM in the context of
heterogeneous landscapes and process performance management. “It is our mid-term goal to resource
projects on the two sides of the Pacific with consultants from both companies. Even further we will
explore new emerging regions as the base for a joint entity.” describes Tom Gulledge the next steps
of this new alliance.
