    REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 28 /CNW/ -- K2(R) today announced the free

the Silverlight-based K2 Web Designer for workflows. Customers will enjoy a 25

    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; $10,000 for unlimited users, installed on a single server; or $15,000

    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.
