An Australian company has acquired the intellectual property for one of the world’s leading open source software products in the field of network management.
Queensland based Opmantek (ASSOB: OMK) has acquired and launched a new release of one of the first developed open source software programs, Network Management Information System (NMIS), which is used by approximately 10,000 organisations worldwide.
NMIS is a network management software platform that has been developed over the last 12 years and is used to manage IT networks from 1 through to 75,000 devices.
Opmantek’s open source software is free to all users, however Opmantek has developed a unique business model to capitalise on the popularity of NMIS with support packages and add-on software modules allowing the company to provide enhanced service to users at a cost.
CEO Danny Maher says open source programs are extremely popular due to their low upfront and operational costs, however lack of commercial support does cause concern for some organisations.
