I'm looking for a list of software products or services, which provide
Web enabled interactive environment for the business activity
monitoring and/or business process management. The products must be
able to receive data from multiple sources, perform the on-line

data contains certain critical conditions.

Hello knowser-ga:

It was a real pleasure to answer such an interesting inquiry. After
taking into consideration the requirements for your desired software,
I browsed the internet for such companies that provide such a
solution. In selecting the companies, I consulted many news resources
to evaluate the reputation of a company and than evaluated their
business monitoring tools to see if they could be included in my final
list. Doing so, I came out with thirteen different web based business
monitoring tools that are considered to be one of the most advanced in
this category.

I am also including the web links to ten other companies that
specifically provide business intelligence tools to the ?HEALTHCARE?
industry. In selecting these companies, I consulted the list of ?DM
100 Best Business Intelligence Providers? and than
sorted out the firms that provided tools for the healthcare. It should
be noticed here that I didn?t review their process thoroughly but
hand-picked them on the basis of their reputation. The result of this
search might or might not reveal what you are looking for. The only
purpose of including this list is to provide you with additional
information where you might find very useful tool. I found some of
them very interesting.

It should also be mentioned here that five of the companies that were
included in my original list are in the ?DM 100? list. The reason
behind other companies not making the list is that the list contains
the names of companies that deal with business intelligence
applications while most companies that I picked are those that only
specialize in business monitoring tools and may not compete with the
business intelligence software developers.
