credativ is an independent consulting and services company specializing in the development; implementation; and support and operation of enterprise solutions based on open source software. Established in 1999, the company has operations in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Netherlands and India, in addition to Germany. Initially, the agreement calls for credativ to provide consulting services and some of EDB’s packaged services, such as Architectural Health Check and Database Migration Assessment, in Germany but EDB may also tap credativ to support customers in other markets where credativ maintains a presence.
Throughout each location, credativ operates Open Source Support Centers, which provide comprehensive 24x7 support and operational expertise. credativ is also a specialist in PostgreSQL and its consultants have contributed to the open source PostgreSQL community since the company’s inception.
“credativ has a solid record of delivering excellent support, services and software solutions to enterprises using open source software,” said Marc Linster, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Products and Services, EDB. “This collaboration will benefit EDB customers by expanding access to local Postgres expertise as they transform their data centers into innovation platforms with EDB.”
As the company leading the transformation to open source database management systems, EDB helps organizations respond to the imperative that their data centers contribute to strategic business objectives. Already, 20% of the Fortune 500 has deployed the EDB Postgres™ database management system to redirect budget savings to better support today’s digital business initiatives.
