Nuxeo, an Open Source Enterprise Content Management (ECM) vendor, launched a UK subsidiary based in London. Nuxeo plans to offer its award-winning Nuxeo 5 platform and related support services to large enterprises in the energy and financial services sectors.
Nuxeo announced its entry into the UK at a customer conference entitled ‘Transforming Content into a Valuable and Reliable Business Asset – The Vision for Open Source ECM,’ co-hosted with partner JBoss at BSG House, near Old Street in London. This event is also an occasion to showcase Nuxeo’s technology partnership with JBoss, a division of Red Hat and the leader of Open Source middleware.
According to Nuxeo’s CEO, Stéfane Fermigier, “The UK market is the first major step forward in taking Nuxeo onto the global stage. We are offering something completely unique in the ECM market: a full-featured ECM platform based on modern Java EE standards, royalty free software, a transparent development model with an active community, combined with the accountability and professional support services that ensure enterprise-strength reliability.”
Éric Baroca, VP of Operations for Nuxeo, will step in as the company’s UK managing director. “Thanks to its thriving financial services and energy sectors, the UK holds significant opportunity for Nuxeo. These document-intensive industries, which are comprised of large enterprises that need to comply with industry regulations, are ideal ‘sweet spots’ for Nuxeo.”
Nuxeo says it enables customers to build and run a large range of traditional ECM applications from the server to the desktop. Nuxeo 5 addresses the full range of ECM functionality, specifically:
The company is currently recruiting sales consultants and support engineers to work in central London, and is also working to build up a network of certified partner VARs and systems integrators for the Nuxeo Partner Programme.
