Starting a New Gig at Intalio

I posted earlier this month (wait gosh it’s Feb. already, alright make it last month) that I was looking for a job. Well the search is over. Yesterday I signed on with Intalio, the leader in Open Source Business Process Management. The CEO, Ismael Ghalimi, was an advisor to my previous company, ThinkFree. Getting to know him there I grew to respect his wisdom and knowledge of the industry (geez, I haven’t even officially started yet and I am already kissing up, but it is true too so…). When he asked me if I was interested I jumped at the chance.

I’ll be directing the marketing activities there. So as far as the job function it will be pretty much the same. But, it will certainly be challenging going from what was primarily addressing the consumer to medium business range into a company that is firmly entrenched in the enterprise market.

It will be somewhat like old times when I worked at HP in the Nonstop Division. We had a number of BPM-like initiatives. Although much has changed since then with the advent of a number of standards and a huge jump in the technology. So, I have some homework to do. If anyone has some resources I should take a look at, please feel free to let me know.

And thanks to everyone who gave me so much help during the transition. I felt very supported in my community. The whole thing couldn’t have worked out better, and I am really excited about moving forward.
