- What is this wiki about?
+ Agila is centered around Business Process Management, Workflow and Web Service Orchestration.
It's composed of two specialized modules: Agila BPM and Agila BPEL.
  
- Interesting starting points:
-  * RecentChanges: see where people are currently working
-  * WikiSandBox: feel free to change this page and experiment with editing
-  * FindPage: search or browse the database in various ways
-  * SyntaxReference: quick access to wiki syntax
-  * SiteNavigation: get an overview over this site and what it contains
+ '''Agila BPM''' is basically handling tasks and users who have to complete these tasks.
It's a very flexible and lightweight workflow component.
+ 
+ '''Agila BPEL''' is a BPEL-compliant Web Services Orchestration solution. Here is a short
description of what BPEL is good and bad for (from http://wiki.java.net/bin/view/Main/WhatIsBPEL
)
+ 
+  * BPEL is not workflow: there are no explicit abstractions for people, roles, work items,
or inboxes in BPEL (among other things).
+  * BPEL is also not BPM: no specified data model for measurement, reporting, or management.
+  * BPEL is not integration: there is no explicit support for transformation, semantic interpolation,
or specific protocols.
+  * BPEL is not all-encompassing: there are some patterns that are difficult to model with
BPEL. 
+  * BPEL (i.e., an implementation) abstracts the common, non-process-level concerns of business
process execution.
+  * As a service-tier composition language, BPEL is a key ingredient in a service-oriented
architecture.
+  * BPEL provides a deployment-level interface for higher-level tools (e.g., modeling).
+  * "Low-hanging" innovation does not create sustainable competitive advantage.
+  * Complexity will remain an unavoidable part of the enterprise technology landscape. Managing
and minimizing that complexity will create leaders.
+  * Defining the organizational processes around BPEL, i.e., who uses BPEL and how, is of
paramount importance to the role and success of service oriented architecture.
