On The Radar: Colosa
This On The Radar report looks at Colosa, a US-based provider of an open-source BPM technology platform called ProcessMaker, which is written in PHP. ProcessMaker is also offered as a hosted service, called ProcessMaker Live. You should consider ProcessMaker if you work for a small or medium-sized organisation with a requirement to automate relatively lightweight document review/approval processes that don't have complicated systems integration requirements. ProcessMaker will be a particularly good fit if your organisation has access to PHP development skills but lacks access to more "traditional" enterprise software development resources (based around Java, for example).
