Telligent, a Texas-based company focused on enterprise collaboration, announced earlier today that they have purchased Zimbra from VMware. This move by VMware follows suit with other moves of de-emphasizing certain products from the VMware solution offering. VMware is focusing on software-defined data center, end-user computing, and hybrid cloud opportunities. VMware states that the primary goal is to make sure that there would be a seamless transition for customers and provide a buyer that is focused on the growth of the product.
How will this impact you as a Zimbra user or potential customer?
The answer is to continue leveraging Shadow-Soft as your valued partner in regards to the Zimbra product. We are equipped to manage your current environment, customization and tuning, and future deployments. VMware has stated that it should appear to be business as usual during the transition period and Shadow-Soft is focused on making sure that your investment in Zimbra is handled with care and ease.
We look forward to the growth of the Zimbra product under the leadership of Telligent and the future opportunity it brings to current and new customers moving forward. Contact Shadow-Soft today for any questions regarding the Zimbra acquisition and future deployment plans.
