Intalio Donates Process Modeler to Eclipse Foundation


Intalio, Inc., The Open Source BPMS Company today announced the donation of its BPMN process modeler to the Eclipse Foundation. The technology is now available under the Eclipse Public License (EPL) and is part of the SOA Tools Platform (STP) project.

ebizQ received the following details:

"Thanks to a truly open development process and a relentless quest toward technical excellence, the Eclipse Foundation has established its platform as the standard development tool for any IT shop today," said Ismael Ghalimi, founder and CEO of Intalio. "The donation of our BPMN process modeler to the STP project will make this fantastic tool a viable option to a growing community of business analysts, thereby contributing to bridge the gap that still exists between business and IT."

This contribution follows Intalio's donation of its EMF model comparator to the Eclipse Foundation earlier this year. "I'm excited to get such a large contribution from Intalio in an area that's likely to be of significant interest to the Eclipse community at large," said Ed Merks, co-architect of the EMF tools project.

"BPMN has become an important factor driving business-IT alignment," said Bruce Silver of BPMS Watch, "since it is intuitive enough to be used by business analysts, yet rich enough to generate powerful service-oriented implementations. By contributing a BPMN tool to Eclipse, Intalio will further encourage that collaboration."

The STP BPMN Modeler is one of three contributions made by Intalio to build the first Open Source Business Process Management System (BPMS). It complements the BPEL Engine donated to the Apache Software Foundation and the Tempo BPEL4People workflow framework hosted on Intalio.org. All three components form the foundation for Intalio|BPMS, the first BPM solution to support a Zero-Code development model.

"Intalio|BPMS perfectly completes Thaler's SOA. It makes service orchestration and composite applications a reality, without having to write a single line of code. Application development enters a new era where business takes control back from IT," said Pierre-Philippe Bastin, Head of Research at Callataÿ & Wouters.

"While some BPM vendors give their proprietary process modeling tool away, but charge for the necessary runtime components, we make our entire product available for free and give away the source code under Open Source licenses for its most critical components," added Ghalimi. "Furthermore, the building blocks for Intalio|BPMS provide the most faithful implementations of relevant industry standards for BPM, namely BPMN, BPEL and BPEL4People. This is part of our mission to make BPM available to a mainstream audience, and today's donation is yet another step toward this goal."

Still others say that Enterprise 2.0 is all of these things. Learn More
