Corporate Objective

Our vision is to deliver Open Systems that provide real competitive advantage to our business partners. Further, we commit to be honourable and ethical in our dealings with all within our business sphere. We define an Open System as a system of interacting components (software, hardware and human) with interface specifications that are fully defined, publicly available and maintained according to group consensus. Such systems are vendor independent, as any vendor can, on their own, create a product that interconnects to an Open System. Open Source technologies are one important component of Open Systems. The Internet relies on Open Systems to function. Some other examples of Open Systems are: most networking infrastructure (firewalls, proxies, routers, switches, wifi, etc), the Apache web server, LDAP directories, the Linux, Android & UNIX operating systems. Where a solution cannot be a 100% Open System we carefully select non Open Systems components with preference for multi-sourced technologies. Some of the competitive advantages of Open Systems include: Lower Costs - Multi-vendor competition means customers can do more with less Robustness - Reduced interruptions to customers with demonstrated high uptime and minimised virus and security risks Control - Customers are empowered as the balance of power shifts away from a single dominant vendor and multiple vendors can flourish
