Intalio Inc. is bringing together BPM and CRM into an integrated cloud computing solution for the enterprise, thanks to two recent acquisitions. Intalio, a venture-backed firm, is also shipping an appliance based on HP technologies to support on-premise secure private clouds.

Intalio|Cloud is aimed at Global 2,000 companies and government users looking to tap into SaaS (software as a service) PaaS (platform as a service) or IaaS (infrastructure as a service) options to exert better cost controls over their software and compute power needs, Intalio officials said.

Intalio's combined hardware-software cloud platform is designed to offer choice of cloud deployments - either on-demand remote services or on-premise secure and private clouds, the company said.

In specific, Intalio|Cloud can be deployed in an enterprise's data-center, behind its firewall, using its own hardware, while being fully managed by its own existing IT staff, or enterprises can run Intalio|Cloud from Intalio's servers for a monthly fee per user, according to Intalio.

Inside Integrated, Enterprise-Class Intalio|Cloud
Powering Intalio's integrated enterprise cloud are two (2) recent acquisitions:

  • CodeGlide, a CRM platform vendor based in Argentina, which offers a web based CRM suite platform that includes Sales Force Automation, Marketing Automation, Customer Helpdesk, Analytics, Enterprise Mashups, and Office Productivity; and
  • ProcessSquare, a German-based BPM firm, offering Web-based BPM services ABB, Allianz, Henkel and other enterprise customers.

    "These two acquisitions and the massive product development efforts that followed are taking Intalio to a whole new level," said Ismael Chang Ghalimi, Founder and CEO of Intalio, in a statement. "We're now bringing BPM and CRM together into an integrated cloud computing platform that is unlike anything currently available on the market. Intalio|BPM is now available as a 100% multi-tenant, Web-based application, while Intalio|CRM is at feature parity with Salesforce.com, costs 60% less, and is available both on-demand and on-premise, while providing a much better user interface, similar to Microsoft Dynamics CRMs."

    Intalio's launch meets enterprise-class criteria, according to Burton Group analyst Richard Watson. In a statement, Watson said "A cloud application platform needs multi-tenancy, location-independence, metadata-driven application engines, and easy composition of loosely-coupled resources at its heart."

    Intalio is also offering the Intalio|Cloud Appliance to make it easier to deploy Intalio|Cloud within large organizations

    Intalio's appliance, based on the HP BladeSystem architecture, puts all the hardware and software needed to build an enterprise-class cloud computing platform in one rack. The hardware is made of HP BladeSystem blade servers and enclosures, Solid State Drives (SSD) for all database storage, and the InfiniBand interconnect technology. The Intalio|Cloud Appliance powers Intalio|Cloud on-demand, and is also available for on-premise deployment.

    Use of the HP BladeSystem will allow Intalio's customers to dynamically gain efficiencies through their advanced power and cooling optimization techniques, while providing the very best hardware/software solution, officials said.
