OpSource Connect Named Most Innovative Software in the SoftwareCEO/CompTIA Awards : OpSource Accelerates Software as a Service Application Development and Market Acceptance by Removing SaaS Integration Barriers

Share Article

OpSource™ announced today that OpSource Connect™, the SaaS solution for Web services, has been named the “Most Innovative Software for the Software Industry” in the second annual SoftwareCEO/CompTIA Awards. The awards honor technological and business model breakthroughs that deliver innovations in software and content delivery. This is OpSource’s second SoftwareCEO/CompTIA award; it won the “Most Innovative Service/Business Model” in the inaugural SoftwareCEO/CompTIA Awards last year.

That's testament to the creativity and vibrancy of the software market, which continues to produce products and services that deliver real business value to customers. By winning a SoftwareCEO Software Innovation award, OpSource has demonstrated it is at the forefront of innovation. On behalf of the worldwide membership of CompTIA and SoftwareCEO, I am pleased to recognize their achievement.

OpSource Connect allows SaaS and Web companies to consume and publish multiple Web services across a common, secure platform — the OpSource Services Bus™ (OSB). OpSource Connect also solves the problem of SaaS integration by unifying SaaS applications in the "cloud" and with legacy enterprise applications behind the corporate firewall. SaaS applications will no longer function in silos; instead, they can be leveraged in new and expanded markets. This will change the way companies build and deploy SaaS applications, the way those applications interact, and how these SaaS applications reach new markets.

"This year's SoftwareCEO Software Innovation Awards competition featured more than 90 entries, a record number," said David Sommer, chief operating officer, CompTIA, and publisher of SoftwareCEO. "That's testament to the creativity and vibrancy of the software market, which continues to produce products and services that deliver real business value to customers. By winning a SoftwareCEO Software Innovation award, OpSource has demonstrated it is at the forefront of innovation. On behalf of the worldwide membership of CompTIA and SoftwareCEO, I am pleased to recognize their achievement."

OpSource Chief Technology Officer John Rowell said, "To be recognized by SoftwareCEO/CompTIA for the second year in a row is a great honor and further proof of the innovation that OpSource consistently delivers to the market. We are very proud of our ability to push the boundaries of SaaS application development while removing barriers to SaaS adoption by the enterprise. OpSource Connect accomplishes both of these objectives by allowing web services to be consumed and published as well as integrated in the cloud and behind the corporate firewall. Multi-application integration also allows companies to save time and resources and, more important, to reach new markets. We are very grateful to receive this award and will continue to deliver innovative products and services that accelerate the adoption of SaaS."
