Hello,


This week Openbravo announced the winners of its “Partner of the Year 2010” Awards.  As Openbravo’s Vice President of Channels, I will write my first blog post to highlight this occasion, and to congratulate all involved.

This is a very special moment for many of us within the Openbravo Ecosystem.

First, it is a special moment for all the award-winning partners, as it is the recognition for their talent in so many different ways. Although each winner achieved success in his part of the world in different ways, they all share two key characteristics:  passion and dedication to Openbravo.

Second, it is a very special moment also for the rest of the Openbravo partner network. While each of our Partners is a success story in itself, winners are the evidence and the testimonial that we are walking a successful business path.

Finally, it is also a very special moment for all the Channel Team at Openbravo that I am leading. Our mission is to lead all partners to success. Award-winners reminds us we can achieve it with the same keys: passion and dedication.

Our sincere thanks and congratulations to our award-winners, for the vital role they play in Openbravo’s success:

Openbravo would like to congratulate Spain on a great World Cup victory.  It was well-deserved and a testament to the team’s patience, stamina and skill.  They stayed  true to their philosophy, and did not waver from a proven strategy–even after an upset loss in the first match.


As a global company with origins in Spain, Openbravo is proud of this landmark achievement, and also the way it was achieved.  I think there is a lot that companies can learn from the hard work,  perseverance and interdependence of the Spanish players.  I also see many of the same underlying attributes in Openbravo’s team and extended  ecosystem, and I know that similar perseverance, execution, and faithfulness to our open source strategy will ultimately yield great results for Team Openbravo. 


¡Felicidades España!
