), a provider of network software and services, reportedly
has launched initiatives to deliver customer-centric software solutions.
Enea, a Kista, Sweden-based supplier of real-time operating systems, middleware, development tools and database technology, says it’s expecting to bring stronger focus to key vertical markets that would combine commercial, standards-based and open source software with best-in-class professional services.
“Enea has traditionally relied on its extensive portfolio of commercial software products and industry-specific services expertise in order to help customers solve problems,” said Asa Landen Ericsson (News
), president and chief executive officer at Enea.
Landen said that the company is taking a more solutions-centric approach that uses its software and 40-plus years of telecom and vertical market services expertise, as well as open source software.
He said that this approach will ensure that customers can maximize the benefits of the open source community along with software solutions backed by market expertise.
Enea, as part of the strategy, also has decided to join the OpenSAF Foundation and contributing to the OpenSAF Project.
By joining the project, the company hopes to improve and supplement the company’s portfolio of commercial, high-availability middleware products for telecom equipment manufacturers.
According to Terry Pearson, vice president of marketing for Enea, customers have increasingly unique requirements for solving industry problems.
Although the industries Enea operates in have the same general needs, companies often have specific criteria that makes a one-size-fits-all software solution impractical, Pearson said.
“Our OpenSAF initiative is a good example of our increased focus on delivering standardized software packages drawn from our portfolio of commercial, standards-based offerings, select open source projects, and unique customization services,” Pearson said. “Enea is the one company that can provide custom solutions, standardized solutions, or any combination in between. It’s good for Enea, good for our customers, and will help foster industry growth.”
