When adopting new technologies having the right expertise available is crucial for success. Collabora has been helping our clients for many years by providing key linux and open source skills to their product teams.
Collabora was founded by establised members of the open source community which has provided the organisation with the knowledge and ability to work with the upstream open source projects in a succesful and productive manner. This saves our clients a lot of time and money as it allows them to focus on pushing their products forward knowing that the improvements we develop together for the open source tools they are using will be merged into the upstream projects, and through that be available and working for their next product cycle.

As software becomes more complex, it's much faster to use existing open source technologies than to start from scratch. You'll benefit from collaboration between different developers on the same project. There's less duplication of effort and staffers waste less time. In fact, in the long run, it's difficult for closed source projects to compete with established open source projects.
