BonitaSoft Reports Record Growth in 2012

BonitaSoft, the leader in open source business process management (BPM), today announced that it continues to experience significant growth and acceptance of its solutions worldwide, more than doubling its annual revenues, customers, partnerships and employment in 2012.

The company signed 260 new customers in 2012, bringing the total to 525. Growth was particularly strong in software subscription packs, with 156 new subscription customers added in 2012, a 134 percent increase over 2011. With commercial customers in 61 countries and open source deployments in 193 countries, Bonita Open Solution surpassed 2 million downloads by the end of 2012.

The company added more than 40 employees in 2012, increasing global staffing to more than 100. The company more than doubled the size of its R&D team, continuing its commitment to customers and innovation. It also made significant investments in Europe, Latin America and North America sales, marketing and customer care teams.

Launched in June 2009, BonitaSoft has continued to experience strong growth across a wide array of industries and geographies. Growth was especially robust in North America, which experienced an almost 400 percent revenue increase year over year, and in the financial services and public sectors.

Recent customers include MathCraft, a provider of security software and services for corporate, government and military organizations; Teach for America, an organization that works in partnership with communities to expand educational opportunity for children facing the challenges of poverty; United Property & Casualty Insurance Company (UPC), a writer and servicer of property and casualty insurance; Credit Agricole, the world’s sixth-largest bank by total assets; and Michelin, a designer, developer and marketer of Michelin tourism products and digital services.

BonitaSoft also generated significant momentum in its partner channel. It now has 90 technology and systems integration partners, more than double the total at the end of 2011. New partners added in 2012 include CGI, Ippon Technologies, Interact SPA, MI Technologies, SOA Software Factory, Insight Consulting, Cognus and Konosys.

BonitaSoft officials cited the increasing importance of BPM in today’s enterprise environments as the major driver of the company’s continued growth.

“Businesses are looking for ways to improve operational efficiency at an affordable price. BonitaSoft products and services allow them to do that,” said Miguel Valdés Faura, BonitaSoft CEO and co-founder. “Our mission has been to stay laser focused on democratizing the BPM market – and our efforts are paying off. Companies are starting with small department-level projects, proving success, and moving to make BPM ubiquitous in their organization. We are excited to help more companies realize their BPM journey in 2013.”

Acceptance of BonitaSoft’s solutions also was reflected in its receipt of industry awards in 2012. The Bonita Open Solution won the Market Award, given out by OW2, the open source community for infrastructure software. BonitaSoft also received the “Next Generation” award from Syntec Numerique and Ernst & Young, and was honored by InfoWorld with a second consecutive “Bossie Award,” signifying excellence in business-oriented open source software.

Bonita Open Solution is a comprehensive business process management suite that enables organizations of any size to model, automate and improve processes quickly and easily.

“A business process management suite must be elegantly designed to benefit both process developers and users,” said Research Manager Carl Lehmann of 451 Research. “BonitaSoft has done well in this regard and is a good fit for many organizations seeking a quick and powerful way to get started with BPM.”

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
"This all sounds great. But it's just not realistic." This is what a group of five senior IT executives told me during a workshop I held not long ago. We were working through an exercise on the organizational characteristics necessary to successfully execute a digital transformation, and the group was doing their ‘readout.' The executives loved everything we discussed and agreed that if such an environment existed, it would make transformation much easier. They just didn't believe it was reali...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...

We all know that end users experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices - not doing so will be a path to eventual ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Archi...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...

The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures.

This is where continuous testing comes in. D
