Alexandre Zapolsky, CEO of LINAGORA: "Our value proposition for OpenPaaS is to have designed our platform around the core values of openness, privacy and security. From the beginning we have been driven by strong ethical beliefs, such as the notion sovereignty. Those are synthesize into three pillars: Open by design, Private by design, Ethical by design. OpenPaaS is a change of model, a real disruption: we have built a platform with strong requirements for data control and security. This is why OpenPaaS is so different!"

Deployable on any infrastructure, everywhere, interoperable with everything thanks to its open API, OpenPaaS allows organizations to accelerate their digital transformation and implement their platform.

Michael Bailly, OpenPaaS’ Product Owner, reminds us that OpenPaaS comes from the Investments for the Future Program: "The industrialized version of OpenPaaS is the culmination of several years of research and two major research projects representing a public-private investment of more than 31 million euros, bringing together numerous first-class academic partners (Ecole Polytechnique, Telecom Sud Paris, Telecom Nancy, Ecole des Mines d'Albi, etc.) and industrial partners (Nexedi, Xwiki, Brake France ...) A major innovation for digital sovereignty, OpenPaaS has been the subject of 31 presentations and scientific publications, so it is a great honor to introduce the first public release of OpenPaaS!"

Alexandre Zapolsky, concluding: "We deliver OpenPaaS a few weeks after the publication of the yearly report of the Court of Auditors, which estimates that the French government is saving 100 million euros due to free software. Public administrations need to continue their digital transformation, and good management come with our open source platform! "
