New Linux Foundation Members Leverage Global Linux Growth

BearingPoint, Daynix, Linaro Limited and Systena Expand International Reach of Linux-Based Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 -- The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux and collaborative development, today announced that BearingPoint GmbH, Daynix, Linaro Limited and Systena are joining the organization.

Nearly every industry worldwide leverages Linux for high-performing, mission-critical enterprise computing today. Opportunities with next-generation chips and ARM architectures offer ample expansion for open source as the foundation for Internet of Things connectivity, connected car innovation and hyper-scale computing delivered as cloud services. These developments also offer plentiful development, training and consulting engagements for third-party IT professionals with Linux skills. Based throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East, today's new Linux Foundation members are tapping into these computing trends and newly hatched market opportunities.

More information about today's newest Linux Foundation members:

BearingPoint is a management and technology consulting firm with European roots and a global reach. The company's consulting network of 9,200 people serves clients in more than 70 countries and engages with them for measurable results and long-lasting success.
