Intalio, Inc., The Open Source BPMS Company, announced that it has acquired FiveSight Technologies, a privately held company based in Chicago, Illinois. FiveSight is the company that brought to market the first open source implementation of the BPEL 2.0 specification, developed to address the growing need for business process management (BPM) as a core competency for companies large and small."Intalio was started as an open source company and initiated several major open source projects such as OpenEJB, which served as a foundation for Apache Geronimo," said Ismael Ghalimi, founder and CEO of Intalio. "With this acquisition, we are bringing open source to the world of Business Process Management and have what it takes to change the economics of the BPM industry."

Intalio has incorporated the FiveSight technology within Intalio/BPMS 4.0, which is currently available through an Early Adopter Program and will be released to the public in Q1 2006. Intalio is planning to continue the development of the FiveSight BPEL 2.0 engine under the open source Common Public License, and release its BPMN process designer and BPEL4People workflow suite under similar open source licenses later in 2006.
