Another SUSECON has come and gone, and what an event it was! If you follow us on social media, you’ve seen the amazing, informative and inspiring keynote speakers, pictures of the great parties and videos of people from all over the globe who share our enthusiasm for open source.
My Kind of Open
This year’s theme, “My Kind Of Open,” encompassed everything we love about open source – collaboration, community, flexibility and access to solutions that fit your needs. And best of all no vendor lock-in. To quote SUSE’s President of Strategy, Alliances and Marketing, Michael Miller, “Why should anyone have to be locked in to a one size fits all solution? On the contrary…we want to unlock the inherent power of your uniqueness and enable transformation on your terms. We call it Open-Open.”
SUSE extends that open-open philosophy to our support teams as well. If you are looking for support that is everything you want from open source look no further than SUSE Support. Support the way you want it, when you want it. On your terms.
Don’t Take Our Word for It
SUSECON gave us the opportunity to survey our customer base and find out how they feel about open source in general and in particular SUSE Support. At the end of the survey, we found that 84% of the customers surveyed indicated that dependable support was key when implementing open source for the enterprise.
And when it comes to SUSE Support specifically, the results were overwhelmingly positive. Of those surveyed:
- 67% said that SUSE Support was the reason they chose to buy a SUSE open source solution.
- 80% said that having SUSE Support had increased their confidence in using open source solutions.
- 56% said that SUSE Support exceeds their expectations.
