Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 11 marzo 2012

This report has highlighted AuraPortal amongst the most prestigious BPM vendors in the global market, including such vendors as IBM, Oracle, Appian and Pegasystems.AuraPortal surpasses its competitors in all categories but one, “Vertical Specialization”, and in the two most important aspects: “Product Quality” and “Value for Money”, AuraPortal has obtained the highest score (9 points), situating itself clearly above the next best vendor on a scale of 1 to 10.From a global perspective, AuraPortal is clearly the leader, with a score of 58.5 points in a competition where four of the nine candidates have scored less than 8 points, and the candidate following behind AuraPortal (Appian) has achieved only 35.5 points in total. According to OVUM, “AuraPortal’s performance has been strong: its scores are consistently high for the User Sentiment dimension”. The report also says that: “Even more interesting is AuraPortal’s presence among enterprises with fewer than 5000 employees, traditionally a BPM blind spot for the larger vendors. This enterprise segment accounts for over 30% of AuraPortal’s business, a higher percentage than that reported by any other vendor featured in this report”.

Transfer of students

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 22 novembre 2010

The Community of Protestant Churches in Europe CPCE aims to reach a comprehensive agreement on common principles for the training of ministers on the 105 member churches of the CPCE. Representatives of 23 Protestant churches from 16 European countries participated in a consultation in Vienna from 18-21 November 2010. The consultation elaborated a draft paper and agreed on the following final communiqué: It is important to work towards common standards in theological education which facilitate the transfer of students from one educational establishment to another within Europe, mutual recognition of educational achievements, compatibility of different educational paths, as well as the exchange and acceptance of ministers from other CPCE churches.  It needs to be said more strongly than before theological graduates should be able to integrate the various disciplines of theology. The perspectives of biblical studies, church history, systematic theology and practical theology should be more clearly related to each other. There should be a stronger interdisciplinary component in all areas of education. The draft emphasizes the relevance importance of continuing professional development of ministers. In a contemporary context, there needs to be a clear educational goal and church support. To achieve this, the CPCE has the potential to offer suitable opportunities: pan-European exchange programmes for continuing education, an international institute for continuing ministerial education, and the development of multilateral partnerships for programmes for continuing education. Furthermore, suitable instruments of coordination need to be established. Studies abroad as part of academic education are already a matter of course in many churches of the CPCE, but this opportunity should be more extensively promoted and taken up. Ministers in training should also be given the opportunity to complete part of their church based training in another member church of the CPCE. Another goal is the temporary exchange of ministers. Long term transfer of ministers from one member church to another will be facilitated, if there are programmes that help them to become familiar with their new context. It is intended that, by January 2011, the paper will have reached a state in which it can be sent to the member churches of the CPCE and their institutions of theological training for their responses. The paper will be given its final form on the basis of these responses to be presented to the General Assembly in Florence in 2012.
