MM: Our roots are in open source, so we are really big fans and supporters of other open source BPM projects. The big difference is that most of those open source BPM players do not have complete BPM suites. They don’t have robust studio functionality coupled with a user portal, form builder, and execution engine all wrapped up in system that can Read More

Progress Software (NASDAQ: PRGS), a software solutions and platforms provider that enables enterprises to be operationally responsive, is ending 2011 on quite a positive note.
