BPEL Testimonials

This page tracks endorsements of BPEL from organizations around the globe.

Active Endpoints

"The approval of WS-BPEL 2.0 marks a significant milestone in the evolution of service-oriented computing. In much the same way that SQL provides a standard data language for relational databases, BPEL provides a standard language for service orchestration. Active Endpoints has been an enthusiastic contributor to the development of WS-BPEL 2.0, and we look forward to participating in future endeavors related to this critical standard."
--Chris Keller, co-founder and vice president of Product Development


"BPEL is already the industry foundation for orchestrating Web services. The new WS-BPEL v2.0 standard is an important milestone that represents a significant evolution of the original specification. WS-BPEL enables our customers to build and deploy successful Web services and SOA projects that scale with the organization as they add new partners, customers and services to their infrastructure. We were pleased to work alongside other technology vendors to develop WS-BPEL v2.0, and look forward to helping to accelerate its adoption."
--Charlton Barreto, Senior Computer Scientist and Architect

BEA Systems

"BEA sees WS-BPEL 2.0 as a very important milestone in the ongoing effort to align the industry behind a common technology for orchestrating services within an SOA. This supports our efforts to serve our customers through aggressive support of open standards."
--Michael Rowley, BEA Technical director and standards architect


"The concept of BPEL that began in the earliest days of Web services has become a cornerstone, not only for bringing more finely grained business processes closer to the business department, but also for ensuring that common ways can be constructed among technology providers designing frameworks for future Service Oriented Business Processes. The approval of WS-BPEL as an OASIS Standard should be noted as a milestone in the fulfillment of the open Web services vision."
--Charles Abrams, Research Director


"As enterprises work to speed adoption of SOA, they need standards to ensure business process interoperability, especially in multiple vendor environments. HP SOA Systinet, a system-of-record for SOA business services, supports the latest WS-BPEL standard through the Governance Interoperability Framework (GIF), a widely-accepted method for integrating SOA-enabling technologies. This will help our customers optimize the business outcomes of their SOA initiatives by capturing business process related information."
--Avrami Tzur Vice President of SOA Software


"IBM's leadership in SOA has been built upon a foundation of standards and service oriented principles. IBM delivers Business Process Management (BPM) enabled by SOA. Core to the execution of our process portfolio is Business Process Execution Language (BPEL). We recognized the benefits and importance of the BPEL specification at its outset and that's why we have built our process technology based on it.
--Sandy Carter, Vice President, SOA & WebSphere Strategy, Channels and Marketing


"Microsoft is pleased with the OASIS approval of WS-BPEL, having been supportive of and involved in the standardization process. We are further driving interoperability by supporting this approval process as we committed to ensuring customers have great solutions for this type of challenge."
--Chris Kurt, Group Product Manager of Connected Systems Division


"As one of the earliest supporters of BPEL, Oracle has been enabling production BPEL customers for the past several years. The release of BPEL 2.0 is a significant development for the industry and will serve to increase the already strong momentum behind the BPEL standard. In particular, our customers see BPEL 2.0 as enabling a smooth evolution path from BPEL 1.1 and are excited to see several key process orchestration requirements now included in the standard."
--Don Deutsch, vice president Standards Strategy and Architecture

Rogue Wave Software

"Rogue Wave Software supports the OASIS decision to advance WS-BPEL as an e-business industry standard in SOA. In approving the WS-BPEL 2.0 OASIS Standard, not only will the business value of existing processes greatly increase, by extending interoperability between applications using Web services, but also will enable better support of automated process integration within and across organizations. The OASIS announcement will allow Rogue Wave to continue to successfully deliver high performance SOA software products based upon the SCA model."
--Patrick Leonard, Vice President of Product Development


"SAP considers the process definition capabilities of WS-BPEL as one of the key building blocks for enterprise SOA. We plan to enhance the existing SAP NetWeaver support of BPEL4WS 1.1 with a WS-BPEL 2.0 implementation. We are excited about the standardization of WS-BPEL, which will significantly enhance our ability to offer service-based integration processes to our customers."
--Michael Bechauf, Vice President Industry Standards

Sun Microsystems

"We are very happy to see the excellent progress that WS-BPEL 2.0 has made. Sun Microsystems and other partner companies drove the design of the WS-BPEL v2.0 OASIS Standard. We're focused on its use in composite application development to meet our customers' needs for service integration in a pluggable service-oriented infrastructure. You can see today how we have leveraged WS-BPEL v2.0 as a service engine which plugs into the Java Business Integration-based, SOA platform in Open ESB -- our open source development community."
--Dale Ferrario, VP, SOA/Business Integration


"The approval of WS-BPEL 2.0 as an OASIS Standard is an important endorsement for assuring companies globally that they can successfully advance their service-oriented and event-driven architectures with ease. As a key contributor and active participant in the making of the specification, we believe BPEL 2.0 will help to address the growing complexity around orchestration."
--Matt Quinn, senior vice president of Product Strategy


"BPEL's importance is in providing users with a standardized runtime execution language for business processes. This streamlines deployment of new processes, enhances portability and reduces total cost of ownership. The WS-BPEL 2.0 standard extends this value proposition with enriched support for collaborative business processes. Enterprises can now more easily share process models beyond the firewall while preserving the confidence of their corporate data and intellectual property.
--Marc Breissinger, CTO
