Berlin, November 10, 2014 – The Document Foundation (TDF) announces that CIB Software is now a member of its Advisory Board. CIB Software, based in Munich, Germany, is a leading developer of standardized document lifecycle management applications with more than 25 years of experience. In addition, the company has been a reliable partner in IT consulting from planning through to maintenance.
“Documents and their processes are at the heart of CIB’s business. CIB has for nearly a quarter of a century provided enterprise solutions for many of Germany’s leading financial institutions.

“We are happy to see another company capable of adding value to LibreOffice joining our Advisory Board,” says Thorsten Behrens, Chairman of The Document Foundation. “The vision of a growing ecosystem around LibreOffice is becoming a healthy reality.”
TDF Advisory Board has 16 members: AMD, CIB Software, CloudOn, Collabora, FrODeV (Freies Office Deutschland), FSF (Free Software Foundation), Google, Intel, ITOMIG, KACST (King Abdulaziz City of Science and Technology of Saudi Arabia), Lanedo, MIMO (Consortium of French Ministries), RedHat, SPI (Software in the Public Interest), Studio Storti and SUSE.
