K2 is the most popular workflow  solution
to use with SPS/WSS because of its seamless integration with the WSS
platform. K2 is also one of the most expensive options. I have not
actually worked with Skelta but they have recently come out with some
updates to their workflow product  which have kept them up in the
rankings. Bob Mixon wrote up a nice evaluation of some of the major
players in the BPM world you can take a look here:

This article is a bit dated but it drives home some of the things you
should be thinking about when purchasing a BPM solution which couples
tightly with SPS/WSS.
