Open Source Support Center Launches U.S. Headquarters

credativ, Europe's largest independent open source service and support company, announced today that it has expanded operations to the U.S., where it will offer comprehensive services provided by its Open Source Support Center to enterprise, small and medium business (SMB), and government sectors.

The company named Joseph E. Conway as President/CEO of credativ LLC. Mr. Conway will use his 20+ years of experience managing and delivering successful projects, many based on open source technologies, to quickly build up robust U.S. operations.
The credativ, LLC Open Source Support Center provides expert/developer level service and support for all major open source distributions and applications. Examples of supported distributions and software include: Red Hat, Debian, and Ubuntu Linux distributions; PostgreSQL and MySQL databases; Nagios and OpenERP applications. credativ also supports numerous other distributions and applications built on open source technologies.

Mr. Conway said of the move to the U.S: "Open source adoption is accelerating in the U.S., and credativ LLC is introducing an important new concept to satisfy the resulting support void. We are one of the first companies to provide a critical piece of the infrastructure for mixed open source technology stacks - comprehensive, developer-level service and support for all major distributions and applications under one roof. We are an independent one-stop shop, and our aim is to help customers to save time and resources by focusing on solving their problems regardless of which open source technology best meets their requirements."

Michael Meskes, founder and CEO of parent credativ GmbH remarked: "Businesses and government agencies in the U.S. face the same open source challenges as their European counterparts in terms of selecting and implementing multiple open source technologies and finding high quality service and support from one provider.

"We are already enabling customers across Europe to gain significant benefit from open source. Now U.S organizations can rely on us as well," he continued.
