eZ Systems, an Open Source Web CMS vendor, joined forces with its Gold Partner Mitsue-Links Co., Ltd. to open an eZ Systems office in Tokyo, Japan, this November.
Although eZ is not new to the Japanese market, the new initiative will further promote eZ Systems’ Open Source Content Management System (CMS) eZ Publish in Japan.
According to eZ CEO Aleksander Farstad, the company has been active in the Japanese market for the last two years, building a partner network and working with “significant” customers. With an accelerated growth in the market, the next step is, obviously, to get direct representation in Japan to support further growth.
eZ Systems Japan will focus on the following:
* Serve as the base for eZ Publish marketing activities in Japan
* Provide specialized for the Japanese market development and support
* Provide consulting services
* Train Japanese eZ Partners
The grand opening of eZ Systems Japan is scheduled for November 5, 2008.
