Josh Long talks to Activiti cofounder Joram Barrez about the wide world of (open source) workflow engines, the Activiti BPMN2 engine, and what workflow implies when you’re building process-driven applications and services. Joram was originally a contributor to the jBPM project with jBPM founder Tom Baeyens at Red Hat. He cofounded Activiti in 2010 at Alfresco. In this interview, Joram talks about the state of workflow systems and the disruption of open source. He looks at use cases that are well served by Activiti. Moving to a process-centric approach has its challenges, and Joram talks about application integration strategies for workflow.
