Liferay Recognizes B2B 2000 in Spain as a Platinum Partner
Partner award comes with portal provider's growth in Europe
Los Angeles, CA -- Liferay, Inc., provider of the world's leading enterprise-class open source portal, announced today that B2B 2000, an IT consulting firm specializing in management system integrations in Spain, has become a Liferay Platinum Partner.
B2B 2000 is Liferay's first Platinum Partner in Spain. The recognition is indicative of Liferay's overall growth in Spain and Portugal, which saw revenue double between 2009 and 2010, with a continued increase expected this year. The growth has come as open-source technologies adoption, initially strong in Spain's government sector, has accelerated into private industries.
Also, more of the region's top companies are recognizing the business benefits of the high-quality support provided through the Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition and Liferay's strengthening partner network. Over the past three years, Liferay has built its partner network to cover the entire national territory, leading to 16 partners in Spain and one partner in Portugal thus far.
"B2B 2000 has been a valuable Liferay partner for the past five years, facilitating high quality Liferay implementations and demonstrating a deep understanding of today's enterprise environment," said Bryan Cheung, Liferay's CEO. "We look forward to seeing more great things from B2B 2000 and all of our partners in Spain and Portugal as Liferay devotes itself to meeting the region's enterprise portal platform needs."
"B2B 2000, as a company specializing in knowledge management solutions and the integration of management systems, has found in Liferay the perfect platform to help our customers to obtain the best option into the open source world," said José Manuel Alvariño, CEO of B2B 2000. "In this way, B2B 2000 has developed a lot of great projects, getting excellent results and customer satisfaction, thanks to Liferay's strong platform and its provided features, as well as its ability to adapt to customer needs. B2B 2000 is pleased to be a Liferay Platinum partner offering certified training and development and maintenance services. This has strengthened B2B 2000's bet on this product and has helped us grow in the market and actively collaborate in the Liferay community."
