Windows Interoperability Creates New Markets and Fresh Opportunities for Open Source Company
Founded in 2000, SilverStripe is an open source web development company, delivering Content Management Systems (CMS) and development services to businesses throughout Australasia, Europe and the USA. A growing number of developers were choosing to run its PHP based CMS application in a Microsoft Windows environment, but were confronted by problems installing and running the software. The significant demand for a Windows compatible version of the CMS soon made it clear that greater interoperability with the Microsoft platform would encourage broader adoption of the software. The successful addition of Windows support to SilverStripe CMS has expanded the potential market for the technology, creating additional opportunities for service revenue growth.
