Open Source Leaders Join Forces to Support European Users of the OpenGeo Suite
New York, USA, Lausanne, Switerland, August 24, 2011 — Camptocamp, a leading European open source solutions provider and OpenGeo, a global open source geospatial software company today announced a new partnership. Camptocamp will add the OpenGeo Suite Enterprise Edition to its product offerings, and will provide support for the OpenGeo Suite in Western Europe’s trans-alpine region.
OpenGeo and Camptocamp have collaborated for several years in the development of core geospatial technologies. Both companies are active leaders in the OpenLayers project and jointly initiated the GeoExt project. In early 2011 the two companies organized an end-users code sprint to enhance mobile support in the OpenLayers project. When discussing the announcement, Claude Philipona, Camptocamp President said, « We have been working closely with OpenGeo for the last few years. This is a natural progression for us to form an official partnership based on our shared values. Together, our clients and our companies will benefit from our joint efforts. »
Chris Holmes, OpenGeo president, added: « This partnership provides many benefits. Our combined resources during code sprints and projects have been very productive; this formalized agreement will ensure a collaborative approach to our future commitments to the open source community. Our Western European clients also gain local language support and expertise from Camptocamp. »
