SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ — The Open Solutions Alliance (OSA), a nonprofit, vendor-neutral consortium dedicated to driving the interoperability and mainstream adoption of comprehensive open solutions, today announced Bluenog is the latest company to be added to a growing membership roster. Bluenog, an enterprise software and solutions company, joins the organization with a commitment to advance interoperability between commercial open-source applications by providing thought leadership and best practices.
OSA's focus on open source application interoperability is a vision that resonates deeply with Bluenog's vision and go-to-market strategy. Bluenog, already an active participant in the Common Customer View (CCV) and marketing committees, plans to work closely with OSA to achieve application interoperability through enhanced community collaboration. This is also a theme reflected in Bluenog's mission to tightly integrate content management, portal and business intelligence — three applications required by nearly every enterprise.
"Integration of open source software has the power to drive real change and business benefit in enterprise IT. Our two-part integration strategy, in which we tightly integrate open source CMS, portal, and BI in our Bluenog ICE product and also provide 'ready integration' with third-party products, reflects our belief in that proposition," said Sastry Taruvai, co-founder and chief information officer, Bluenog. "In our experience, this kind of integration can eliminate cost, delay, and risk, creating valuable business benefits. We're eager to work with OSA to promote these benefits industry-wide."
"OSA is very excited to welcome Bluenog to the organization. The group's collaboration efforts are enhanced and strategic initiatives advanced with every new member that joins," said Dominic Sartorio, OSA president. "For OSA, interoperability is paramount, and we are pleased Bluenog has joined to help optimize our integration work."
Bluenog is similar to a growing number of OSA members who have customers looking for scalable solutions that support both open source and commercial technologies. Vendors such as Bluenog that address these dual needs will lead the way in the next generation of enterprise IT. Bluenog is looking forward to sharing some of its high-profile customer stories, which will serve as standard-bearers for the proposition that integrated open source offerings can successfully address real-world business challenges.
In July of this year, OSA conducted an online survey to determine trends in the commercial open source space. To view results of this survey, visit the OSA home page at http://www.opensolutionsalliance.org/, and download "Open Source Trends 2008" from the Docs section.
