The newly independent, standalone Suse is proving to the market it can now better than ever focus on customer needs. It can also deliver the right technology, support and services to help customers navigate digital transformations.
Suse is showing customers how to create solutions that make sense for their businesses as they tap into an extensive open source-based ecosystem that gives them greater freedom and flexibility to enable their digital transformation.
“Suse’s growth and innovation has been exciting over the past several years. But we are just getting started,” said Nils Brauckmann, CEO of Suse. “Suse positioned itself better to bring more innovation to customers and partners faster through both organic growth and acquisitions, keeping us on track to provide them with the open solutions that keep them ahead with their own customers in their own markets. We continue to adapt so our customers and partners can succeed.”
Business momentum leads to Suse expansion
Revenue grew approximately 15 percent in fiscal year 2018. The business is about to surpass the $400 million revenue mark for the first time. All regions of the world saw revenue growth in the past year.
Jay Lyman, 451 Research principal analyst, said, “Suse’s independence should allow the company to maintain its strength in the operating system market (where its Linux is a leading option). It will also allow it to keep investing dynamically in additional, emerging markets such as cloud native and DevOps. Suse benefited from its previous parent companies’ investments; however, it will move beyond past successes and markets to capitalize on new opportunities.”
Enterprises today continue to drive demand for cloud and data center solutions along with their growing need for hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, application delivery, containerization and microservices. Suse’s open approach enables digital transformation on a customer’s own terms.
