The use of open source and free software is becoming more and more common in both public and private sector IT systems. Our experience in this sector ranges from PR for security devices based around a hardened Linux core to open source support services providers, both in the UK and abroad. We have worked with open source collaboration and email systems and free software is a subject we have a strong interest in: we use FOSS products as part of our day-to-day PR work.
In developing our open source pr agency experience, we have worked with both technology and services providers. Having built relationships with both the trade press and online influencers we are able to get the right kind of exposure for our clients.
credativ is the largest independent Open Source consultancy across Europe with a team of over 30 specialist free software engineers.
The adoption of Open Source software by businesses is on the increase. However, one of the major hurdles for companies wanting to use open source, is the perceived lack of good quality open source support and consultancy (according to a 2007 Forrester report).
