BPEL is your next step up for creating partner services hierarchies; a more visible and open technology that reverses the proprietary trend of dealing with pending processes deep in applcaition code.

Virtuoso native BPEL creates composite process layers using the OpenLink Process manager, your BPEL window on the SOA world with all the functions needed to integrate and manage BPEL processes.
