About the Company:
Bonitasoft is the leading provider of Business Process Management (BPM) solutions, created by the founders of the Bonita open source project. We aim to be the undisputed global leader in open source BPM by providing flexible, powerful solutions for all types of organizations.
The Opportunity For A True Open Source BPM Software Vendor
The Business Process Management Systems (BPMS) market is dominated by commercial vendors who supply their technologies to large accounts via lengthy, complex and expensive business and Information System reengineering projects. This high-end positioning allows commercial vendors to charge a premium price for their products, bundled with high-level consulting that aims to change the customer’s IS organization through a top-down approach.
With more than 20 years of evangelization from vendors and consultants, many companies are now fully aware of the benefits of BPM and of the value of BPMS suites. However, those that want BPM but not complex IT reengineering can’t justify the premium cost of proprietary solutions. They are looking for cost-efficient and flexible alternatives.
Open Source BPMS is the solution for businesses and organizations that want to avoid heavyweight proprietary software solutions and don’t want to re-invent their IT systems.
Bonitasoft has leveraged the success of Bonita to become the premier Open Source vendor in the BPMS Market. Bonitasoft targets customers from medium to large, and addresses the needs of small standalone development projects all the way up to company-wide information system reengineering.
Bonita, An Open Source Technology That Already Holds A Strong Position
The Bonita software project was co-founded in 2001 by Miguel Valdés Faura, a computer science engineer at the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA). It was made available through the OW2 Consortium as an Open Source alternative to existing commercial BPM solutions. Since then, Bonita has been downloaded several hundred thousand times and is used by thousands of companies around the world.
