Montclair, NJ (PRWEB) November 20, 2008
CorraTech, the leading global open source software services firm, today announced the launch of two new outsourcing solutions for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) interested in open source. CorraTech also announced it has expanded its Open Source Center of Excellence (OSCOE) and open source development and support operations in India.
With the economic downturn and tighter controls on spending more companies are focusing on open source projects, including ISVs that are embracing open source development and distribution models. Enterprise customers that need to squeeze every dollar out of their software investments are driving more ISVs to look at open source models to increase value for customers. To help ISVs quickly establish the infrastructure needed to launch and maintain open source software initiatives, CorraTech has launched a new ISV outsourcing solution, named OpenISV.
To support the OpenISV launch, CorraTech is re-focusing its offshore operations in Kochi, India, which is ranked as a top market for IT talent and is the existing home of many Fortune 1000 India operations. By expanding OSCOE, CorraTech will be able to increase the depth of open source knowledge across the company's employees and together with new, strategic partnerships in the U.S. and Europe will help ISV's execute their open source strategies.
"New and established ISVs are recognizing how valuable the open source distribution model can be," said Ron Bongo, Chief Executive Officer of CorraTech. "However, ISVs are finding that executing an open source plan can be counterintuitive, requiring knowledge and resources they don't have in house. CorraTech's OpenISV outsourcing solutions capitalize on our expertise and allow ISVs to quickly and successfully launch and manage open source projects and products, speeding lifecycles and lowering costs."
CorraTech's initial OpenISV solutions will include OpenISV OPD - outsourced product development, and OpenISV TCE - total customer experience. Both solutions will be customizable to meet the needs of customers. OpenISV OPD will include outsourced services to manage the entire open source product development lifecycle from design through support, including prototype design, prototype development, feature definition, product development and maintenance, unit/interface testing, validation and acceptance, technical support, customer support, professional services, document services and performance benchmarking. OpenISV TCE will include outsourced services to maintain systems that support the total customer experience, including open source project administration, community forum and project forge support, web content management and CRM support, campaign management, analytics and search engine marketing maintenance.
CorraTech is the leading open source software services firm, providing open source system integration, support and outsourcing to software companies and mid market and enterprise level customers since 2002. CorraTech optimizes software costs, improves user productivity, frees business processes and reduces redundancies using open source software. Please visit our Website at http://www.corratech.com.
