Recife, Brazil (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Liferay, Inc., provider of the world’s leading enterprise-class, open source portal, announced today that SEA Tecnologia, a Brazilian software company specializing in open source, has been elevated to Platinum Partner. SEA Tecnologia is Liferay’s first partner in South America to become a Platinum Partner.
Interest in open source solutions has been building in South America, and developers in countries such as Brazil are large contributors to open source communities. Liferay has been pursuing business opportunities and expanding its operations in the region, adding to its South American headquarters in Recife this year with the launch of another Brazil office in São Paulo. Sectors such as government are showing especially strong potential for growth in South America.

We see exciting possibilities for Liferay in Latin America and we are happy to move forward with SEA Tecnologia as our newest Platinum Partner.”
SEA Tecnologia was first introduced to Liferay Portal when the software company began using the open source platform for its intranet. Going into its 10th year in business next year, SEA Tecnologia specializes in free and open source software (FOSS) and delivers high quality enterprise solutions through highly trained professionals with the use of agile methodologies.
“Becoming a Liferay Platinum Partner is the coronation of seven years of hard work, overcoming huge challenges, winning many battles, seeking quality and continuous improvement, and the high quality of the Liferay platform,” said Leonardo Antonialli, General Director at SEA Tecnologia. “Our customers are very satisfied with Liferay Portal for its versatility, ease of use, security and robust features set.
