Digital Creations and Kaivo Expand Partnership

Kaivo Will Develop and Deliver Zope Education and Training

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 19, 2000--Digital Creations, publishers of the Open Source Zope Applications Server, and Kaivo, a leading Open Source solutions provider, announced that Kaivo will be developing and delivering Zope training worldwide.

Zope is a powerful content management system that allows customers to quickly build complex and feature-rich web sites and browser-based applications. Using an Open Source license, Digital Creations has quickly built a loyal group of thousands of developers around the technology.

``Our customers and potential customers are constantly requesting training on the Zope platform,'' said Rob Page, COO of Digital Creations. ``The extremely rapid growth of the Zope community has made it difficult for us to keep up with all the requests for training and education services.''

``We began our business as a UNIX education and training provider in 1984,'' said Brian Cabral, CEO of Kaivo. ``We have been educating customers on the benefits and power of Open Systems and Open Source tools for sixteen years. We know how important technical training can be to the rapid adoption and successful implementation of a powerful platform like Zope.''

Kaivo will be enhancing current Digital Creations courses (Zope 101 and Zope 201) as well as adding advanced technical training and strategic business-focused seminars. Together, this suite of education and training will help customers and Zope Solution Partners to understand the business benefits of the Zope platform and give their technical personnel the ability to build solutions using Zope.

``Sophisticated business customers choose platforms with broad developer support,'' said Gary Graham, Director, Sales and Marketing for Digital Creations. ``Education and training are key components in building our world-wide network of Zope Solution Partners and more successfully meeting our customers' requirements.''
