PORTLAND, Ore., June 25 /PRNewswire/ — TechTracker Media(TM), the leading IT vertical ad network, today announced the launch of their new "Enterprise Open Source Channel" – the industry's first vertical marketing channel devoted entirely to open source. In response to the accelerating market growth of open source in the enterprise, TechTracker Media (TTM) leveraged their expertise and contacts in information technology (IT) to offer marketers a unique opportunity to reach key enterprise open source IT decision-makers and the open source community across a set of leading, trusted open source sites including the O'Reilly Network, OSNews, Koders and LinuxQuestions. Currently, no other media company offers TTM's influential tech audience and targeted content.
The introduction of the Enterprise Open Source Channel fills a distinct void in the vertical marketing channel. According to IDC, Linux servers now represent 12.7 percent of the overall server market, or $1.6 billion for the first quarter of 2007, and the worldwide revenue from standalone open source software reached $1.8 billion in 2006. Realizing this accelerating expansion and the limited marketing opportunities currently available, TTM is leading the way in offering and supporting a strong network of sites focused on open source. Sites within the TTM network already draw more than 20 million users per month.
"TechTracker Media has been a great partner in our marketing campaigns," says Andrew Odewahn of the O'Reilly Network. "We provide cutting-edge information to the open source community, and the Enterprise Open Source Channel will give companies the opportunity to more easily connect with the high-quality, high-value audiences sites like ours attract. Access to this targeted channel is a welcome addition to the market."
The Enterprise Open Source Channel furthers the company's reputation as a leading source for information technology content, specializing in enterprise open source, application development, system administration, and IT management.
