Intalio|BPMS offers a one-click, zero code means of designing and implementing business processes suitable for even the least technical of users. Under the new partnership, Intalio’s Enterprise Edition offers an optional module, called Intalio|Portal, which gives users access to Intalio’s Task Manager as an integrated portlet within a Liferay-powered portal framework. From there, users can make decisions to approve insurance policies, review expense reports, or input data on a loan request.
“The partnership bridges the gap between real business needs and IT,” said Brian Chan, Liferay Portal’s chief software architect. “It provides an extra degree of agility for enterprises that need to react quickly to changes.”
“Intalio|Portal’s use of Liferay Portal also allows users to integrate our process management tools with any number of other applications that may be valuable for an enterprise,” added Ismael Ghalimi, CEO and founder of Intalio. “We think this integration will greatly increase efficiency in the workplace. Users can easily see and act on the information they need to get their job done, all in one central location.”
The integration of Liferay Portal and Intalio is already being leveraged at Lucca Consulting of Sydney. OpenSoft, Intalio’s System Integrator partner helping with the project, assisted in creating a bureau reporting service for credit score carding and recovery agency performance based on Liferay Portal, the Intalio platform and CAS Security server. The integrated offering is sold as a chargeable service to individual financial institutions. “Liferay and Intalio were selected because they provided a cost-effective and flexible solution for adapting the service to specific customer needs,” commented Chris Waldron, CEO of Lucca Consulting. “OpenSoft was selected because of its proven ability to integrate and support commercial open source solutions.” A debt collections software product is also currently being developed.
In its ninth year of development, the award-winning Liferay Portal provides enterprises with shared space for sharing and managing content as well as a full suite of collaboration tools. Its flexible SOA framework allows standards compliant applications and technologies to be easily accessible via the web.
