The clients I talk to are realizing now that not only can they reduce their IT budgets by implementing open source solutions, but that the results of doing so are more impressive than they had previously imagined

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 20, 2008

Intelestream today announced the consulting company is witnessing a surge in customers requesting open source business process automation solutions.

The clients I talk to are realizing now that not only can they reduce their IT budgets by implementing open source solutions, but that the results of doing so are more impressive than they had previously imagined," states Ray Stoeckicht, Intelestream's Director of Sales and Business Development.
