The third quarter of 2016 brings further enhancements to the platform, new key accounts and partnerships, and the largest contributor conference since the open source project started
COLORADO SPRING, CO – October 20, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — ownCloud continues down the road to success in the third quarter of 2016. Following the departure of the co-founder and CTO, and the establishment of an ownCloud fork, the management team, led by CEO Tobias Gerlinger, and COO and founder Holger Dyroff, have succeeded in retaining the confidence of the clients while simultaneously expanding the operative business.
In the third quarter, 40 organizations renewed their contracts with ownCloud or chose ownCloud Enterprise for the first time, which means that over 350 clients now use the ownCloud Enterprise Edition. The final list includes household names like Deichmann, Human Rights Watch, the German soccer league (DFL), Lufthansa Technik and the City of Cologne. Success has also been achieved in expanding the partner network: currently, more than 50 contract partners have made a commitment to ownCloud, including Red Hat, DELL, and Comparex. The most recent additions include partnerships with Computacenter, Fujitsu, GRAU Data and Collabora. A partnership agreement for the North American market has also been signed with XTIVIA, Inc., whose workforce has now been trained so that they can serve customers and prospective buyers on-site. The world’s largest ownCloud installation, Project “DigiLocker” from the Indian Government, has meanwhile grown to more than two million registered users.
“We don’t want to gloss over anything, because, temporarily, the spin-off of Nextcloud as a fork certainly kept ownCloud on its toes. We had to dismiss nine employees in the US, which was a step that hurt,” comments Tobias Gerlinger. “Which is all the more reason why we are pleased with the success in reorganizing everything quickly, with our time-tested team as well as managing to attract new employees. This allowed significant innovations to be included in the launch ofRelease 9.1, such as 2-factor authentication and Windows Network Drive notifications. A positive side effect has also been the dismantling of old structures from the past, allowing us to align ownCloud better to the needs of our clients. Today, ownCloud is in better shape than ever before, and with a bulging development pipeline, we have great aims for future growth and further internationalization!”
