Apart from government, SA businesses and citizens benefitting from the use of Open Source Software, it is also important to have local companies being paid to provide training, support, as well as implementation (and creation) of Open Source Software. For many small businesses and government departments who do not have in-house technology people to perform these functions, such services are essential for the successful adoption of Open Source Software.
Any South African business or organisation can be listed here at no cost if the provision of Open Source Software services are core to their business, so that such resources are available to those who wish to use them.
