Intalio Releases Most Standards Compliant BPMS

IntalioBPMS 4.3 Supports BPMN, BPEL, and BPEL4People

Intalio, Inc., announced the release of Intalio|BPMS 4.3, the first Business Process Management System (BPMS) to support the BPMN, BPEL, and BPEL4People industry standards for BPM.

“The development and promotion of industry standards for BPM has always been a priority for our company," said Ismael Ghalimi, founder and CEO of Intalio. "This new release of our Open Source BPMS is the first to provide complete support for standards we co-authored with IBM and Microsoft, namely BPMN and BPEL. We're very proud of this accomplishment."

Intalio|BPMS 4.3 provides support for the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN), which is developed by the Object Management Group (OMG). It enables business analysts and software architects to collaborate on the development of executable processes of arbitrary complexity. For example, the Dutch Government is using Intalio to manage a business process defined by over 250,000 independent steps.

Intalio|BPMS 4.3 supports version 1.1 of the BPMN specification, which was released earlier this year by the OMG. Intalio|BPMS 4.3 also provides support for the Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), which is developed by OASIS and was co-authored by Assaf Arkin, Intalio's chief technology officer.

Through Intalio's Zero Code development approach, BPMN process models are automatically translated into BPEL processes that can orchestrate transactions with existing systems through a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and interactions with end-users through a Web-based workflow interface. For example, the Dutch Government is running over 250 million long-running process instances on Intalio|Server. Intalio|BPMS 4.3 supports both versions 1.1 and 2.0 of the BPEL specification.

"Part of our decision to adopt Intalio|BPMS was its technical architecture and capabilities," said Natalie Watson, chief technology officer, OperMIX. "From modeling to execution, we were pleased to see that Intalio engineers decided to rely on many industry standards and Open Source building blocks. Our main challenge was to integrate the Intalio|Workflow (Project Tempo) with the Open Source LifeRay portal, our preferred portal framework. Tempo uses proven and well-known frameworks and standards, such as Spring, Web Flow, XForms, and AJAX.”

“As a result, our technical team was able to start working quickly on the integration project. Things went even faster once we engaged with Intalio's technical support team. Today, we are proud to offer a powerful duo that combines an enterprise-grade portal with solid foundations for sales process management, tightly integrated with external systems such as Salesforce.com and Oracle E-Business Suite," added Watson.

Alongside BPMN and BPEL, Intalio|BPMS 4.3 now supports most of the workflow patterns defined by the BPEL4People model proposed by IBM Corporation and SAP AG. Support for Eclipse 3.2, Geronimo 1.1, XForms 1.1, XPath 2.0, and XSLT 1.0 are also part of this release, as well as an improved graphical form designer, and a new real-time process monitoring interface.

Support for industry standards, combined with the adoption of an Open Source business model, are the primary reasons why over 4,000 companies have adopted Intalio|BPMS to date. "Intalio|BPMS is the greatest BPM product currently available from the Open Source industry," said Nagaraj P., business analyst at e4e. "Intalio|Designer is now our standard process modeling tool."
