Who Is This Cloud For?

Tuesday, June 9th 2009 | Ismael Ghalimi

Following Intalio’s presentation in London yesterday, Aditya Tuli wrote a critical yet constructive post commenting on the announcements we made recently. I have to agree with most of Aditya’s points, and would like to take advantage of this opportunity to clarify a couple of items. First, Intalio|Cloud is indeed targetted at larger organizations, especially the Managed On-Premises option, mainly because this product was designed in partnership with our larger customers. That being said, Intalio|Cloud is also available to much smaller teams, with the On Demand option. Second, we said very little about Intalio|BPM Community Edition indeed, and I will make sure to cover it in more details today in Helsinki, tomorrow in Brussels, and later this week in Paris and Frankfurt. Furthermore, we remain fully committed to our community, and have just put the final touches on Intalio|BPM Developer Edition, which will be formally released on June 16. Aditya, many thanks for your feedback and support! I very much look forward to your comments on Intalio|BPM and Intalio|CRM once you find some time to play with them.

Thank you very much for clarifying regarding the Community edition. It was pointed out to me, and I very much appreciate, that due to the unfortunate last minute moving around of presentations, a couple of things may not have come out as intended. I look forward to hearing more about the Developer Edition when it is finally released.

I am a fairly new user to Intalio and what attracted me first to Intalio was its open source “ness” more than anything else. I suspect this is the case for many. So perhaps not having heard much about it on the day was a bit disappointing. At first.

One of the things that you have written about in your other posts is this vision of a Business Operating Platform. That I find bold and exciting. And Intalio|Cloud (on-demand or with the appliance), is in a way a medium of delivering that platform. Perhaps you can include a little more about Intalio’s vision in future events?

My other interest is in seeing some examples of innovation using open source. Either through D3 (or in time through this Cloud), Intalio could hold a fair to showcase some example projects, extension apps and customizations? This would showcase product extensibility, ease of use and innovative adoption. I am sorry if this was already covered in a past event. But please keep us updated if you are planning for one in the future. Many thanks.

Aditya,

Thanks for the kind words.

We organized a user conference last year and will have another one next year.

Best regards
