This paper describes Talea, a software platform developed within a Piedmont Region (North-West of Italy) project and released following the OSS paradigm. Within the regional policy where Open Source is a key lever for the spreading of ICT, open standards and knowledge and for the increase of local innovation and competitiveness, Talea represents a concrete step as free software "building block" on which even smaller companies will have the possibility to customize knowledge-intensive services. Aimed at supporting the customer-supplier interaction in an Enterprise Application Integration perspective, Talea can be viewed as a generic matchmaker for e-business, supporting a flexible matching between services provision and request. Talea architecture has been designed in order to facilitate easy customization and multi-device access.
