Open3.org was founded in 1999 by Alex Lesniak, Duane Stoddard, and Gunnison Carbone. The founders are long-time software developers that were agitated at the high cost of inflexible integration software. They created Open3.org to provide a quality and universal open source alternative to expensive and proprietary systems.
Aided by system architects and software developers from around the globe, Open3.org has reached it's first major milestone and has matured into a software platform that is ready for the enterprise. Together, we are creating a platform that permits the greatest flexibility and feature set possible, a necessary requirement for the myriad of applications and data systems encountered in the typical integration scenario.
We are looking forward to continued growth for Open3.org. As an open source system that is available to all, Open3.org is emerging as the standard platform for e-business integration. Become a part of Open3.org and join in the revolution!
