Company name: OW2 Consortium
OW2 is an independent, global, open-source software community. OW2 developments follow a flexible, component-based approach. These components range from specific software frameworks, protocols and applications through to integrated, service-oriented platforms for enterprise computing. The consortium is an independent non-profit organization open to companies, public organizations, academia and individuals. OW2 is committed to growing a community of open source code developers. The organization is dedicated to the creation of new technology: original code development is one of its fundamental characteristics. OW2 champions the tenets of quality and usability of its software in the open source enterprise marketplace. It fosters a common technical architecture to be shared by its members and to facilitate the implementation of its technology by systems integrators and end-users. The OW2 projects aim at facilitating the development, deployment and management of distributed applications with a focus on open source middleware and related development and management tools. OW2's global community membership includes over 60 organizations, commercial, public and academic, and over 1100 individual members. With half the OW2 membership, Europe is leading the community, followed by Asia (30%), Latin America (10%) and North America (10%).
