Berlin, August 6, 2014 – The Document Foundation (TDF) announces that ITOMIG is now a member of its Advisory Board. ITOMIG, based in Böblingen, Germany, is a spin off of the University of Tübingen focusing on open source solutions for the enterprise.

Since 2004, ITOMIG is at the crossroad of German and French cultures, offering value added services for the introduction of OSS software such as LibreOffice in enterprises, the selection and use of open source tools for the optimization of IT processes, and the management of migration and sourcing projects”, says David Gümbel, founder and CEO of ITOMIG. During the last couple of years, we have seen a growing demand for LibreOffice related value added services, and we have invested to grow our specific competences in this area”.

ITOMIG will bring diversity to TDF Advisory Board, adding the perspective of German value added software consultants, says Thorsten Behrens, Chairman of The Document Foundation. “The announcement strengthens the entire ecosystem, because it shows that TDF vision of an independent project can foster the growth of third parties investing in LibreOffice”.

TDF Advisory Board has 15 members: AMD, CloudOn, Collabora, FrODeV (Freies Office Deutschland e.V.), FSF (Free Software Foundation), Google, Intel, KACST (King Abdulaziz City of Science and Technology), Lanedo, MIMO (French Ministries), RedHat, SPI (Software in the Public Interest), Studio Storti and SUSE.
