I'm not going to lie, Bonitasoft's success could probably give a lot of American entrepreneurs a run for their money. Based out of Grenoble, France, the 30-person team that that specializes in open source business process management (BPM) solutions is on its way to becoming France's next "open source star", following in the footsteps of Talend and ExoPlatform. And after 8 years of R&D at INRIA (the French national institute for research in computer science), the company officially founded in June 2009 has announced that it is setting-up shop in the US just a few months after its first birthday - with offices in San Francisco and Boston.According to CEO and co-founder, Miguel Valdès-Faura, the strategy of the company has been to target customers that are after something less expensive and more flexible than the solutions of bigger BMP players, like IBM-Lombardi, Oracle or Pega.
