op5 and Transitiv Technologies join forces to deliver open source it-monitoring to UK

London –  June 9, 2011 – op5 AB and Transitiv Technologies Ltd. today announced a collaboration to deliver modern, open source based, unified it-monitoring solutions for Government and Enterprise customers in the United Kingdom.

More than half of all software purchases made over the next five years will be open source according to 56% of respondents in the Fifth-Annual Future of Open Source Survey* released in May, 2011. Open source based solutions are superior to their proprietary counterparts in terms of vendor independence, speed of innovation, flexibility and last but not least cost effectiveness.

Cloud computing, virtualization and outsourcing bring significant cost savings both from a opex and capex perspective, with that comes an exponentially increasing level of complexity as organizations have to rely on virtual machines and service providers for enablement of their business functions.

“It is very obvious that increased efficiency through cost  savings regardless of whether it is the customers, shareholders or taxpayers that pay the bill is a must for all modern organizations. It is however crystal clear that organizational control and accountability for critical business functions cannot be outsourced.” said Ralf Labeda, head of international business development at op5 AB.

“The collaboration between op5 and Transitiv Technologies will enable UK Government and Enterprise customers to maximize benefits from the latest cost saving technologies while staying in control through unified monitoring of internal IT functions, service providers and business processes that depend on them.” said Simon Bowring, sales manager at Transitiv Technologies.

Transitiv Technologies and op5 will showcase the op5 Monitor, a unified open source it monitoring platform at SmartGov Live in the ExCel exhibition hall on 14th to 15th of June.
