Sixtree Partners with Docker

At Sixtree we specialise in building distributed systems. Solutions that, by their nature, bridge information assets across boundaries to support end to end business processes. Today, the majority of information solutions are distributed and heterogeneous, and are shifting between on-premise and the cloud. This requires a standardized runtime platform that is independent of any particular technology, language or runtime environment.

Alfresco Partnership for Activiti BPM

Business process management (BPM) is one of the key capabilities in our layered architecture. When you're building out services—liberating the data and functions from your back-end systems—you're only doing that for one purpose; to operate on those systems through external channels. You want these capabilities to be available to your customers, your business partners and your internal business processes. A stand-alone business process engine enables you to manage and orchestrate processes that cut across system and organizational boundaries. These processes consist of automated tasks as well as human tasks.

Sixtree Partners With Red Hat

We recently talked about how open source software is at the core of our philosophy. Sixtree operates mostly in the enterprise domain and we still run into many different attitudes and preconceptions about open source software. But the industry is clearly past the tipping point and there are many enterprises and governments adopting an open source first purchasing policy. Twenty years of outsourcing responsibility and perceived risk has proved unsuccessful. Organizations are seeing more success, better value and higher quality in open source offerings. Not to mention a more sustainable licensing model that doesn't require high up-front costs before anything has been built yet.

Warp Speed on the Composable Enterprise

Deeply ingrained in our philosophy at Sixtree is the idea of building solutions by composing services to fit a unique business need. Nothing really new here, people have been talking about "mashups" about "service composition" and "composite applications" for a while and we've seen our customers derive great benefit from this approach. But what is really exciting is the way that cloud and software as a service (SaaS) really kicks this philosophy into high gear. The majority of our projects in the last two years have involved SaaS integration and that demand is accelerating.
