After years of contributing source code to various major open source communities, the Bonita open source project team is convinced that openness, transparency, collaboration and meritocracy are core values for developing and disseminating software. Moreover, we think that those values are fundamental to achieve innovation.
With the creation of BonitaSoft, we reaffirm our commitment to the open source community and intend to advance Bonita project deployment in today's businesses by providing exceptional quality professional services and support. We offer you, our customers, community members and users: our values, our mission and our business model.
BonitaSoft is the continuation of our open source BPM activity started in 2001 with the creation of Bonita. The following points summarize the values that we, at BonitaSoft, believe in:
- Transparency:This value is inherent to open source at both the community and customer level. Source code is out there for the world to see, touch, and judge. We strongly believe that transparency must be applied to the way that we do business as well as to the source code.
- Collaboration: We are open to all collaboration proposals, whether they come from individuals, companies or institutions. Collaboration is the essence of creativity and a way to share, compare and challenge our vision and efforts with others.
- Meritocracy: At BonitaSoft, you are considered in respect of what you achieve. We are happy to have new people come in to help with source code, feedback or documentation. Everyone has access to our open resources on an equal basis and we will accept contributors based on the merit of your work and your skills.
- Excellence: We put maximum effort, dedication and care in everything we do. Excellence at BonitaSoft is more than a value; it's a way of life. Excellence applies not only to source code and documentation, but also to the day to day life of company.
Our mission at BonitaSoft is to democratize BPM in all kinds of organizations by providing an intuitive, powerful, easy-to-use open source Business Process Management solution to our users.
The BPM software market today is dominated by heavyweight proprietary vendors and lacks open source competition. The market is looking for an open source vendor that will approach it with a clear business model, targeting the right users in an organization.
BonitaSoft is the provider of this open source, easy-to-use, plug-and-play Business Process Management Solution.
