CO-LaN approved consultants
Consultancy scheme ended on October 1, 2006

CO-LaN helps independent developers of Process Modelling Components (PMCs) and Process Modelling Environments (PMEs) to reach CAPE-OPEN compliance. For this purpose, CO-LaN had established a programme of CO-LaN Approved Consultancy Services by which organisations and companies with proven record of CAPE-OPEN technical expertise were partly funded by CO-LaN to assist developers achieve compliance. This programme is now terminated. Inquiries about support should be now sent to CO-LaN Chief Technology Officer.

CO-LaN funded up to two person-days of CAPE-OPEN consultancy for each development project of PMC or PME proposed by a Full Member and approved by CO-LaN Management Board.

The typical task for a consultancy was to support a PMC or a PME developer to migrate its software by providing technical advice. The following preconditions applied : (i) the developer showed CO tester results if such tester exists ; (ii) once developed, the to-be-migrated PMC or PME was made accessible to all Full Members of CO-LaN on commercial basis.

The following Consultancy Actions have taken place:
