Bossie 2010 winner: Intalio BPM

Intalio leads in open source BPM (business process management) with an uncomplicated BPMN designer, a solid BPEL engine, and services for human workflow, though enterprise-grade security, activity monitoring, and business rule management will require a commercial license (you'll also get full access to the source). Version 6 adds important components to business rules, process templates, an easy-to-customize widget-driven AJAX UI, and enriched workflow options. Intalio also has its head in the clouds with a new vertically integrated private cloud offering, now in private beta. Intalio Cloud builds on the BPM foundation with Web-based process modeling, a collaboration portal, and even CRM functionality that takes aim at Salesforce.com.
