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:
