Forget TARP, Take COVER

Here at OpenNMS World Headquarters we like to keep up with all that there business stuff. We use terms like “paradigm shift” and “synergy” like we actually know what they mean – things like that. Heck, I even had a suit and tie on yesterday. Seriously.

With the US officially in a recession and the rest of the world in a similar situation, we’ve been trying to do our part to make things better. For a start, OpenNMS provides a viable alternative to many OpenView and Tivoli products, resulting in a lower cost of ownership.

Education is the core to any successful economy, and while we can’t do any “quantitative easing” when it comes to the money supply at large, we can help out in the “learnin'” department.

From now until the end of the year, any new support customer is eligible for COVER. Like the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP) we’ve created COVER: the Christmastime OpenNMS Valuable Education Rebate.

For every Basic Support Subscription purchased, we’ll provide a voucher good for a seat in any of our Basic Training Classes over the next year. For every Enterprise Support Subscription purchased, or upgrade from Basic to Enterprise, we’ll include a free seat in the combined Basic and Advanced course.

This reflects a savings of at least US$1500 to almost twice that amount, depending on where you take the training.

It’s a stimulus package you can believe in – just in time to use up any of that last minute budget money or as a gift for that special someone to show them that you really care.

Drop a note if you are interested.
