I liked the potential of the collaboration environment to bridge the gaps when rules and process are both being used in a solution and I also liked the potential of applying content management to business rules. Interesting ideas both of them and I look forward to learning more.
- Sandy Kemsley, renowned BPM analyst, wrotea an objective analysis of the Activiti platform. She is eager to see how Activiti will evolve. And we won’t dissapoint her.
- BPM expert Scott Francis of BP3 wrote a very motivating blogpost. He actually downloaded the distribution and played with it. Let me quote him a few times here
- “Did I mention that the whole stack ran just fine, natively, on my Mac as well as a Windows VM?”
- “The documentation is already pretty comprehensive, and gets down to no-nonsense details (not true for many commercial products).”
- “I think the market is ripe for an open source BPM platform that leverages standard underlying technologies and is built from the beginning to allow for cloud-based deployment”
- “We may end up investing some time in the project ourselves.”
- The 451 Group posted a spot-on business analysis of the announcement, and let me quote them:
Activiti is likely to shake-up the BPM market with a ubiquitous project that supports the BPMN 2.0 standard from the Object Management Group.
- Peter Hilton from Lunatech Research, hits the nail on the head:
business processes and work-flow are aspects of most business software and integratingembeddable BPM will be a key element in reducing the cost of business software development.
- Theo Priestly asks the question everybody wanted to ask: “has the fight for open-source dominance begun?”
