bluenogAlso, while at Enterprise 2.0 I had a chance to meet up with the CEO of Bluenog, Suresh Kuppusamy. The Piscataway NJ company, formed by several formerly BEA executives in 2006, is a systems integration / open source collaboration software company that concentrates on the glue that binds typical enterprise content management system implementations with business intelligence and enterprise wiki and calendaring services more commonly associated with portals.

Customers, including Columbia University, NYU and Wellesley College are using the Integrated Collaboration Environment ICE 4.5 to enable students to have a personal portal where their calendars are managed so professors can update deadlines and deliverables, students can access important college business processes such as news, policies, wikis, and administrators can manage important business processes.

The Bluenog ICE includes:

  • pre-integrated software
  • integrations to leading commercial products including Oracle Fusion, Sungard Banner and Documentum
  • Eclipse-based IDE
  • sample code

Suresh pointed out that it is the integration between the silos of information typical of most businesses that define their company’s basic implementation contracts. Because of that, the business intelligence gap – the pain of seeing so much information potential on different sytems – is the starting point for a discussion with customers. It’s not about rip and replace, but about integrate and present. The predictable flat fee for server support and licensing is very attractive as well. Customers pay an annual license and support fee of $25,000 which funds the latest releases and software support. No per user, no per CPU.

The company also offers systems integration services for tune open source, commercial or custom software to address the business goals.
