Software innovator first to deliver enterprise services for leading open source content repository


Basel, Switzerland and Newport Beach, California– January 26, 2007 - Day Software (SWX: DAYN, OTC:DYIHY), a leading provider of global content management and content infrastructure software, today announced availability of a comprehensive range of services supporting Apache Jackrabbit including training, support, consulting and development services. Since its launch in 2005 Apache Jackrabbit has quickly become the leading Java Content Repository (JCR) for the open source industry. Day Software is the initiator of the underlying industry standard JSR 170 and is leading an industry expert group with members such as IBM, Oracle, Sun, HP and many others who all support the standard.

“Apache Jackrabbit is an attractive option for companies who want to move away from expensive, proprietary legacy repositories and are looking for a cost efficient, standards-based alternative,” said David Nüscheler, CTO of Day Software and SpecLead of the JSR170 expert group. “The Apache Software Foundation is the industry’s most trusted provider of reliable open source technology. So far however the lack of enterprise class support and services prevented companies to make full use of Apache Jackrabbit. We are now filling this gap.”

Day Software has initiated the development of Java Content Repositories (JCR) such as Apache Jackrabbit and is the industry’s leading expert for this new technology. Day’s service and support offerings for Apache Jackrabbit will enable enterprises as well as other technology vendors to accelerate the development and deployment of applications that leverage the full power of JCR technology. Java Content Repositories allow companies to build cost-efficient, standards-based content solutions to access their most valuable assets – information about their specific business, its processes, products, customers and documents that previously resided in expensive, proprietary legacy repositories.

“Enterprise-level demand for robust services and support around Apache open source solutions is greater than ever before,” says Piotr Zabiello, SVP Global Services of Day Software. “We are pleased to offer commercial support and services for Apache Jackrabbit, providing customers with an open source alternative to proprietary legacy repositories.”
