    17. 20. Ascentn is an emerging leading provider of Model-driven BPMS solutions consist of proven methodology, consulting, technologies and services. “… . Ascentn’s metadata-driven IT asset-abstraction framework is a key concept, found in leading-edge J2EE-based BPMSs (such as Lombardi, Pegasystems, Savvion and Appian). Its model-driven development framework provides the necessary instrumentation to fully experience the value proposition of SOA . ” –Gartner Research
