Salient Process is pleased to announce its continued partnership with IBM on the new IBM Digital Business Assistant product/offering. IBM has been collaborating with Salient Process and a few other select Business Partners over the last few months on its concept, design, and customer targeting. This partnership was hush hush for a while due to the obvious need for IBM to keep this under wraps until they announced the product.
Our Chief Innovator, Eric Ducos, as well as some other members of our team, have had the pleasure of jointly working with IBM through a very unique and intensive partnership that entails joint product design and development, for the last year. We have especially appreciated IBM’s open-mindedness and inclusiveness in approaching problems and finding creative solutions. Salient’s collaboration on Digital Business Assistant has been no different. We feel that IBM’s inclusion of Salient Process and other business partners from its early stages through conceptual refinement, design, and market relevance has been tremendously beneficial for the product and already makes it an excellent fit from the beginning for many of our customers in the various industries we help with Digital Process Automation.
We will continue to partner with IBM either through direct collaborations on innovative products such as Digital Business Assistant and SPARK UI (we have been jointly "blue-washing" in preparation for SPARK UI being built directly into the IBM BPM product in June), or indirect collaborations (we develop but receive feedback from IBM) such as SPARK Ignition. Look for more innovations from Salient Process in the Digital Process Automation area in the future.
