This year, Intalio will turn ten. In order to celebrate in style, we just released a brand new website. It outlines the progress we’ve made during this first decade, and the vision we have for the next. It’s a major milestone for us, in two ways: First, it’s the first website we built that actually tells a clear story on what Intalio is all about. Second, it’s the first Intalio website that I did not design myself. I’m a bit of a control freak, especially when it comes to content and design, and extracting myself from the process was definitely not easy, but it worked out in the end, and we gained a lot more scalability along the way.

In developing this new website, we tried to better understand who we are, and what we stand for. Out of this little corporate introspection work emerged the four nucleotides of Intalio’s DNA:

  • We are an engineering-driven organization
  • We think process
  • We believe in the virtues of a sustainable commercial open source model
  • We are a truly global organization

We tried to reflect these aspects of our business throughout the website, by disclosing as much technical information about our products as possible, describing many of our internal pr

  • We are a truly global organization

We tried to reflect these aspects of our business throughout the website, by disclosing as much technical information about our products as possible, describing many of our internal processes, explaining the benefits of the COSMO model, and showing how global our customer base really is.

The past 12 months have been especially interesting for Intalio. We doubled the size of our team, crossed the mark of 500 customers (based in 52 countries), signed 36 implementation partners, made our second acquisition (Process Square, Germany), raised a new round of funding lead by Partech International, and closed our first break-even quarter.

The next 12 months should be even more exciting. Most analysts agree that both BPM and Open Source are counter-cyclical. Being the leading Open Source BPM vendor, we expect our growth to further accelerate. In order to best capture this opportunity, we will make quite a few more acquisitions in the Open Source space. If you have ideas for good acquisition targets, please drop me a line. In the meantime, I wish you a very happy new year.
