Tizen is the embedded linux platform created by Intel and Samsung, combining their separate earlier efforts MeeGo and LiMo.
How can Collabora support you using Tizen?
Collabora knows the Tizen stack very well since we been working on it for a long time, in fact since long before Tizen existed, as the Tizen SDK is mostly based on standard desktop and server linux components which we have been working with for many years. These components has been repackaged for the embedded space by Samsung and Intel for Tizen. Things like the linux kernel, the X Window system, GStreamer, d-bus, WebKit and Telepathy are all things we have either worked with or are the main creators of.
At Collabora we can support you at any level you need for Tizen. Want someone to provide you with a turnkey Tizen system that you can deploy your own applications on? We can do that. Want someone who can work with your chipset provider to enable their hardware with Tizen for you? We can do that. Want someone to write Tizen applications for you, ready to be deployed? We can do that.

One of the main advantages of working with Collabora is the strong domain expertise we bring to major parts of the Tizen platform. We don't think you will be able to find another company which has the same width and depth of core expertise around crucial components in the Tizen stack.

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.
