    Hello Mike,

    I came across your interview on BPM suites and wanted to find out if you can do a short engagement with us to help us select a pure play BPM vendor for our company. We have so far seen demos from Pega, Appian, BizAgi and Mendix and are confused.

    Please see http://www.avinetworks.com. The first ADC designed as a cloud delivery platform for the new software defined data center. As customers move to hybrid models and orchestration tools like Openstack start to become standards a load balancer designed to work with those new paradigms is essential. AVI works thru the channel so targeting organizations like yours is our focus. Adding a revenue stream to your offerings is great but also providing a cost effective and high visibility tool that will make their life easier is also great.
    We would welcome the opportunity to learn more on how we might be able to partner moving forward.
