Sirius to sponsor open source project

In a move to promote the open source KDE desktop productivity platform in the enterprise, Sirius Corporation has become a corporate sponsor of the KDE community project.

Sirius and KDE are joint participants in SQO-OSS, an EU-funded project that assesses the quality of open source code.

Mark Taylor, CEO of Sirius, said, “KDE is a high-quality desktop that has always had a strong following in the open source community. By becoming a sponsor of the project, we now want to raise its profile in the enterprise.”

Sirius Corporation is a UK-based open source consulting, support and outsourcing group, and has blue chip multinationals, public sector organisations and the European Commission on it books.
