Intalio|Cloud and Intalio|Cloud Appliance available On-Demand and On-Premises
Palo Alto, CA, May 19, 2009 – Intalio, the Private Cloud Company, today announced the acquisition of CodeGlide, a software company based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and ProcessSquare, a software company based in Munich, Germany. Prior to the acquisitions, CodeGlide had developed a powerful platform for Customer Relationship Management (CRM), including Sales Force Automation, Marketing Automation, Customer Helpdesk, Analytics, Enterprise Mashups, and Office Productivity, while ProcessSquare had developed a Web-based Business Process Management (BPM) application used by customers such as ABB, Allianz, and Henkel. Both product lines have been fully integrated within Intalio’s product stack over the past six months.
Following these acquisitions, Intalio developed the first integrated cloud computing platform designed for the Enterprise. Intalio|Cloud leverages a unique combination of hardware and software to deliver an enterprise-grade cloud computing experience, with true multi-tenancy, dynamic provisioning, elastic scalability, and deployment both on-demand and on-premises. While alternative offerings focus on the Infrastructure as a Service layer, Intalio|Cloud goes all the way up to the application layer, providing best-in-class solutions for BPM and CRM.
“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, Inc. “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-premises, while providing a much better user interface, similar to Microsoft Dynamics CRM’s.“
“Intalio is integral to the operation of the Bank’s back office processes,” said a Vice President at one of the World’s largest banks. “The current platform has allowed us to implement our processes and drive improvements in ways that have up until this point not been feasible with the current crop of BPM vendors. The introduction of Intalio’s Enterprise Cloud Platform provides us with the platform for the next stage in our evolution, creating a comprehensive process operating system that will allow increasing agility of our core processes, and the extension of them beyond the boundaries of our business.“
“Post-modern application architecture demands a deconstructed meta-platform, in which cooperation and composition outweigh cohesion,” said Richard Watson, Analyst for Burton Group. “A cloud application platform needs multi-tenancy, location-independence, metadata-driven application engines, and easy composition of loosely-coupled resources at its heart.“
In order to facilitate the deployment of Intalio|Cloud within large organizations, Intalio also developed the Intalio|Cloud Appliance, which puts in a single rack all the hardware and software required for building a true enterprise-class cloud computing platform. 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 is used for powering Intalio|Cloud On-Demand, and is available for deployment on-premises as well. Intalio also provides a Managed-On-Premises deployment option, whereby all hardware and systems administration services are provided on-premises by Intalio, while customers only pay for a monthly user fee.
“Intalio, utilizing HP BladeSystem technology as its backbone, has built a groundbreaking cloud appliance on the world’s most advanced, sophisticatedly sound and manageable platform,” said Al Chien, Vice President, Client Solutions of Dasher Technologies, and a 20-year veteran of HP. “HP BladeSystems will also allow Intalio’s customers to dynamically gain efficiencies through their advanced power and cooling optimization techniques, while providing the very best hardware/software solution.“
