Grenoble, November 16th, 2009 – eXo Platform, a major provider of open source collaborative software, has just reached an OEM partnership agreement with BonitaSoft, the first provider of open source Business Process Management (BPM) solutions.
With the signing of this agreement, eXo Platform and BonitaSoft strengthen their technological collaboration. BonitaSoft’s business process management solution will be integrated into eXo DMS’s document management module.
Based on Bonita, BonitaSoft’s open source BPM software, the new version of eXo DMS incorporates advanced features for document collaboration and validation. The addition of Bonita’s BPM capabilities provides eXo Platform customers a powerful and intuitive solution for automating their records management.
The result of four years of successful technical collaboration, the eXo DMS version integrating Bonita was made available to the open source community in 2009. Through this enhanced partnership, eXo Platform and BonitaSoft now offer their customers dedicated support and services for this integrated solution.
“We see a demand for more and more BPM features from the open source community and from our customers. The incorporation of Bonita in our product range allows us to automate and standardize an approach that was previously customized for each project,” said Benjamin Mestrallet, CEO of eXo Platform. “Also, through the certification of several eXo Platform modules on the GateIn platform, users are able to extend their portal capabilities with BonitaSoft’s BPM”, said Benjamin.
“We’ve found in eXo Platform a level of expertise in collaborative applications that is capable of addressing the problems of managing the most highly advanced document processes. This partnership really helps to give our customers a head start in mastering their document processes,” said Miguel Valdes Faura, CEO of BonitaSoft.
