The exciting product road ahead for Nintex and K2 Software

This past year has seen a number of significant product developments at Nintex, including continuous innovation with our next generation Nintex Workflow Cloud platform which features the industry’s first integrated workflows and RPA bots, referred to as Nintex Gateway.

Equally as exciting was our company’s acquisition of K2 Software, Inc., in October 2020 which further bolstered our sophisticated workflow and process automation capabilities and brought us additional top engineering talent.

Now that we’re nearly four months past our acquisition, let’s reflect on our product roadmap progress and our commitment to every customer and partner.

Starting with functional integration

To start, we’re spending time integrating highly-valued capabilities to allow our customers that have built application components with Nintex K2 SmartObjects to easily integrate those with solutions built on our flagship Nintex Workflow Cloud platform.

We also are actively leveraging insights, concepts and K2 Software capabilities that have served the K2 Community well and are incorporating them into Nintex Workflow Cloud.

This is no mere lifting and shifting of technology, but a path forward that brings the best of breeds together.

In the future, as an example, it will be possible to extend a Nintex Form with JavaScript or CSS for a greater degree of customization. And we’ll continue to add more features beyond this to support low-code application development requirements.

For organizations with on-premise software needs, Nintex Workflow and Forms for SharePoint has realized broad adoption and has successfully been leveraged by thousands of enterprises to automate hundreds of millions of workflows in SharePoint.

Nintex K2 Five provides rich on-premise automation capabilities outside of SharePoint and will continue to be a principal product of our portfolio.

I encourage you to also read our recent blog post, Nintex on-premises strategy for 2021 and beyond, to learn of our unwavering commitment to our on-premise customers as well as plans for Nintex for SharePoint and Nintex K2 Five.

Nintex and K2 Software Roadmap Priorities in 2021

  • The ability for Nintex Workflow Cloud to call Nintex K2 Cloud workflow
  • The ability for Nintex Workflow Cloud to leverage Nintex K2 SmartObjects
  • The integration of Nintex DocGen® and Nintex RPA with Nintex K2 Five
  • Enabling Nintex Workflow Cloud workflows to access on-premise resources
  • Adding 100+ curated connectors to third-party systems and services

Bringing the best of both cloud worlds together

It starts by actively engaging and listening to our new Nintex K2 Software customers and partners to understand what product features offered within Nintex K2 Cloud are the most critical and highly-valued to your success.

For instance, we’ve learned that customers value the application customization enabled by K2 Software, but desire the ease of use that has been the calling card of the Nintex Process Platform since our company’s inception.

We’re focused on bringing the best of both cloud worlds, from Nintex and K2 Software, together for a best-in-class experience for our thousands of customers and partners worldwide.

Recognizing we don’t do it alone

Nintex is a partner-centric organization and has been since our inception. Our partners, including our newest partners from K2 Software, bring industry and departmental expertise and are critical to the ongoing success of so many of our customers.

In fact, Nintex Partners are the masterminds behind some of the industry’s most successful automation projects and digital transformation initiatives – often serving as the builders of powerful process apps and digital business solutions for an organization. You can get to know our top Nintex Partners from 2020 in this press release.

Together with our global partner network, Nintex is committed to offering you more solutions that you can quickly leverage out of the gate. This will not only allow you to achieve results faster, it will enable our partners to be in an even better position to help organizations solve process pain points and problems, including broken processes.

As a starter, I encourage you to check out our free templates in the Nintex Solution Accelerator Gallery, which includes more than 250 downloadable templates to help you accelerate your process excellence and automation initiatives.

Today the gallery features templates by capability, connector and department and includes eight K2 Cloud solutions, with more on the way.
