New Release Focuses on Unleashing New Rates of User Engagement and Agility by Removing Unnecessary “Friction” Prevalent in Most Complex Global Companies
MINNEAPOLIS and LONDON—November 3, 2016—Sopheon, the international provider of software, expertise, and best practices for Enterprise Innovation Management, today announced the latest version of its Accolade® Enterprise Innovation Management (EIM) solution.
Working hand-in-hand with some of the world’s largest and most innovative companies has allowed Sopheon to deeply understand the value that software can play in enterprise strategy realization. The importance and role of enterprise-grade software was recently validated by Gartner in its 2016 Market Guide for Strategy Execution Software. It is this learning that has driven much of the new capabilities in Accolade 11.0 with its ambition to favorably impact the realization of corporate initiatives.
Andy Michuda, CEO, stated: “The constant pull between ‘responsible, safe, secure’ and ‘speed, ease of use, smart’ is evident in every client who is evolving new operating models to compete in today’s digital market. We feel good about the user community excitement in support of our vision and Accolade roadmap in addressing these evolving challenges.”
Accolade 11.0 introduces:
- Dramatic new capabilities enabling quick and easy dynamic information management. Sopheon is empowering customers to quickly and easily self-configure their users’ work environment, dramatically increasing their ability to dynamically manage the information they need for faster and better work process and decision-making.
- New support for transformational change. New capabilities introduce new levels of agility and velocity by expanding the power of the Accolade software to map to both enterprise process change and operational changes.
- Advancements in security making it easier and safer to embed intellectual property-intensive activity with suppliers and partners within the same enterprise system, without compromise. Additionally, Accolade’s security has been further expanded to assign the most qualified knowledge workers to initiatives without risking compliance with data restrictions or regulations based on role or location.
Accolade 11.0 is available immediately for upgrade, purchase and implementation. All Sopheon Accolade customers who are current on Maintenance and Support program fees are entitled to receive updates to their currently licensed products for this and future release upgrades at no additional cost.
