At a time when the Portuguese government plans to save 100 million Euros / Year through the migration to Open Source technologies, Xpand IT launches a campaign aimed at Portuguese organisations launched a campaign aimed at Portuguese organisations. Starting in March 2013, a team of experts from this consultancy will dedicate time to conducting free analysis and definition of a strategic plan of migration and adoption and Open Source technologies, aiming at reducing costs, increasing performance and business competitiveness. This initiative covers the areas of Business Intelligence (SOA), Service Oriented Architecture (EAP) and Enterprise Application Platforms (EAP). To benefit from this campaign, the assessment request must be made through the Xpand IT website, which is subject to its validation.
“At the moment we have verified that Portuguese companies are betting on these technologies in specific migrations, but few are those that really have an Open Source strategy well defined and integrated with existing technologies. With this initiative we believe it is possible to achieve cost reductions in the order of 80% in some areas, without giving up the quality and safety to which managers are accustomed to the proprietary software”.
Paulo Lopes, CEO at Xpand IT
