Kettle Pentaho data integration

Kettle is a data integration module from the Pentaho BI commercial Open Source product. It has an pretty good Eclipse-based intuitive interface. I think it's a very good choice for your ETL tasks unless you need third party system integration. Kettle has just a few plugins for this. The community version documentation is not as good as with competitors, but it's a common policy of Pentaho. The definite plus of the product is a tight integration with the other Pentaho packages.

Apatar

This product the most easy to start ETL Open Source product. It has a good intuitive interface. One should also mention its advanced automated business software connectors. Apatar is written in Java by a young company from Belarus. At the time of product evaluation (a year ago) I found Apatar to be really slow on relatively big data volumes (>100 000 records) when then SugarCRM connector was involved.

Talend

In my opinion, it is the best Open Source ETL package available. Based on Eclipse, it generates both Java and Perl ETL scripts, which can be used as Web services as well as run from a command line. The product has a really comprehensive set of components including popular business software connectors. Unfortunately, a community version is missing some of very attractive features like business rules components and check points, which have been newly introduced in a last version of the commercial Talend Integration Suite. But as a whole this is a very solid and useful package even in a free version. However, the Talend is not as easy to start with due to non-intuitive interface. But a lot of examples and tutorials solves this problem.

Orchestra

Orchestra is another BPEL-based BPMS. It looks like a Bonita's less successive sister. This is the kind of product you have to make an effort to give a try.

jBPM

jBPM from JBoss by RedHat is a powerful BPMN 2.0 Open Source BMP system. It is good for Java/JBoss programmers. I'm not sure if it is good for end users by itself. Though, end users will probably meet jBPM within other OSS like Alfresco.

Bonita

"An intuitive and powerful solution to build process based applications for optimum cost." This is a truly neat BPMS with AJAX interface, XPDL-based (which is BPEL alternative). Being an already ready-to-use product, it is currently in a very active development phase. It does not include BAM or BRE at the moment, but has a lot of connectors to other software.
