Activiti

Activiti is a new Open Source BPM system from Alfresco made by jBPM developers. I did not test it personally, but screenshots look pretty neat. The modeler interface seems to be very intuitive. The reputation of leading Open Source Document Management system and a team of jBPM developers makes us think that the BPMN 2.0 product is really good.

Jitterbit

This is an excellent peace of software with plenty of useful features. Jitterbit is a relatively easy-to-start tool and has a "no-code" development intuitive interface.

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.

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.
