Column2: Bonita 2021.1 opens up open source development

Miguel Valdés Faura
February 18, 2021

BPM expert Sandy Kemsley talked to me at length about the new Bonita 2021.1 release, and wrote about it in her Column 2 blog.

Highlights of Bonita 2021.1

The most important part of this release, in my opinion, is [Bonitasoft's] shift in what’s open source versus commercial. Like most open source vendors, Bonitasoft is built on an open source core engine and has a number of other open source capabilities, but creates proprietary commercial components that they license to paying customers in a commercial version of the system...Bonitasoft is shaking up this concept by taking everything to do with development — page/form/layout UI design, data object models, application descriptors, process diagrams, organization models, system connectors, and Git integration — and adding it to the open source version.

- Sandy Kemsley, Column2

She also points out that having a unified development environment also makes it easy to move a Bonitasoft application from the open source to the commercial version (and the reverse) without project redevelopment, allowing customers to start with one version and shift to the other as project requirements change.

I was happy to have this opportunity to talk with Sandy, and as usual her writeup is detailed and informative.

What does Sandy have to say after her demo of Bonita 2021.1?
