REDMOND, Washington, October 28 /PRNewswire/ --

- 25 percent discount offered on pre-orders of the Share Point workflow software

K2(R) today announced the free availability of K2 blackpoint(TM) beta 2 software, featuring a tech preview of the Silverlight-based K2 Web Designer for workflows. Customers will enjoy a 25 percent license fee discount on K2 blackpoint orders placed between now and its official release to market.

K2 blackpoint software eliminates complexity and allows users to quickly build workflow solutions and process-driven applications within Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

Even non-developers can use K2 blackpoint to create new SharePoint workflows that span libraries, sites, InfoPath forms, server farms and organizations; manage approvals; and route documents and list items. With K2 blackpoint everything can be built without code, and users can assemble new applications from information that already exists and workflows that have already been built.

This software is totally focused on enhancing the workflow and workflow-based solution capabilities of SharePoint, said Adriaan van Wyk, K2's CEO. By empowering non-developers to create and consume applications in SharePoint, K2 blackpoint frees IT departments to focus on other mission-critical SharePoint applications.

K2 blackpoint is $5,000 (U.S.) for up to 200 users, installed on a single server; US$10,000 for unlimited users, installed on a single server; or US$15,000 for unlimited users, installed in a distributed environment. Each of the K2 blackpoint SKU packages offers all the same features and capabilities, including templates, process portals, the Worklist Web part and the two designers.

K2 blackpoint beta 2 is feature-complete and offers drag-and-drop tools, a Microsoft Office-style designer (K2 Studio) and a tech preview of the Silverlight-based K2 Web Designer.

Because K2 blackpoint is a subset of K2 blackpearl(R) features and tools, it also offers an upgrade path so organizations can grow their investment and add capabilities over time. K2 blackpearl is the centerpiece of the K2 platform for building enterprise-ready, process-driven applications.
