Why Sponsoring?

At EclipseSource, we understand the importance of open source software and the impact it has on software development. That’s why we offer sponsored open source development services that enables you to support the development of open source projects so they align with your strategic goals and meet your specific requirements.

As part of our service, we provide ongoing support to the open source projects, including bug fixes, feature enhancements, and security updates. We also support you in extending the customizability of the open source projects to enable your unique use cases.

This saves maintenance cost of your software product in the future, as you reduce complexity in your proprietary code by avoiding ugly workarounds, generic code or complex patches and forks you’d need to maintain yourself otherwise. Moreover, you strengthen the open source project with your contribution, which facilitates long term availability and a sustainable community.

We work closely with you to understand your specific objectives and identify the best open source strategy to support your software product. Get in touch with us to learn more about how our sponsored open source development service can help you achieve your goals while making a positive impact on the community.
