K2 blackpearl® is built on the Microsoft .NET 3.0 platform to create a comprehensive platform for designing, building and deploying Business Process Applications (BPAs). Both .NET 3.0 and K2 blackpearl support a new approach to application development - simplifying the process of delivering business applications. K2 blackpearl leverages the core technologies of .NET 3.0 - Windows Workflow Foundation, Windows Communications Foundation, and Windows Presentation Foundation - to provide context rich tools bringing together business and technical experts, enabling them to create true business solutions.
