Mark writes "Norwegian open source software developer eZ systems has chosen the Distributed Development Network (DDN), a Philippine open source company, as its first official Asian Region partner.

"We are the first official partner of eZ Systems in the Asian Region," said Victor Serafica, Managing Partner for DDN. "With many companies in the region looking for content management solutions according to the Gartner Group, we believe we can use eZ Publish and their superior products to promote open source solutions."

"DDN will be one of our most important partners due to their knowledge and location in the Asian market. Their unique position will enable both our companies to leverage this market." said Paul Egell-Johnsen, Partner Manager at eZ systems. "Their experience and goals are parallel to those of eZ systems and what we are looking for in this region."

eZ Systems develops and distributes eZ Publish, a content-management toolkit for building dynamic internet solutions such as e-commerce websites, news sites, and corporate intranets and extranets. "Our partnership with eZ Systems makes it easy for us to deliver content management solutions to our partners and clients," Serafica noted. "Their eZ Publish is a robust application that meets more than our expectations."

"But what is more important is that eZ Publish is also an open source application that we can freely modify to fit our clients needs and meet their expectations. eZ Systems shall provide additional support and also hosting when needed," Serafica continued.
