This partnership will deliver a complimentary service model and will mutually reinforce their Open Source on Azure technology offering while expanding the geographical scope of both companies.


OpenSistemas, the company specialised in Big Data and Data Science, and CAPSiDE, the leading provider of design, automation and 24/7 management of critical IT systems, have signed today a cooperation agreement for joint business development within Microsoft Azure’s ecosystem. This agreement complements each company‘s service model, brings specialisation to the technology offering on cloud platforms and expands the geographical reach of the partnership.

OpenSistemas, that develops Open Source applications focused on data capturing, processing and visualisation, is looking to be complemented by the strong specialisation of CAPSiDE in the areas of architecture design, automation and 24/7 management of critical systems.

“This enables us to provide a global services portfolio in which our clients are supported through the whole journey;  from the stages of capture, analysis and visualization of  data all the way through to the continuous operation of systems with the best SLAs in the market, through the software design, the systems architecture and cloud migration.

Josep Ruano, CEO at CAPSiDE.

So, as OpenSistemas focuses its specialisation to workloads related with Data & Machine Learning Solutions, CAPSiDE has been known for its expertise in the design of advanced Cloud architectures for critical environments, the system automation and the 24/7 operation of these environments.

In these crucial new areas for businesses, OpenSistemas is an expert in Hadoop/Spark Cloud distributions, like HortonWorks or Cloudera, with broad experience in the deployment of Linux technologies, especially RedHat.

Likewise, CAPSiDE is an expert in technologies like Docker, Mesos & Jenkins, and also contributes with its own technology on OpenSource and SaaS for critical processes automation in DevOps workflows, an area where it is one of the best experts in the market.

This combination allows us to add knowledge about Azure capabilities, from core systems and infrastructure to the closes to product and data, where Machine Learning has become the solution of choice and one of the Azure diferential value with regard to other Cloud platforms in the market. 

Luís Flores, CEO de Open Sistemas.

From a standpoint of both technology and business, “this agreement allows both companies to provide a greater joint offer, adding capabilities without losing the long specialisation that characterises and differentiates us, and that has allowed us to maximise the value provided to our clients”, states Josep Ruano.

From a geographical point of view, the larger presence of OpenSistemas in Madrid complements CAPSiDE’s capacity in Barcelona and Madrid to tackle new projects in the Spanish capital. The new presence of CAPSiDE outside Spain, who just opened new offices in London (UK), allows OpenSistemas to count with a referral partner to come up with new international opportunities.

CAPSiDE & OpenSistemas identify themselves as the two strongest companies in Spain working on Open Source technologies for Azure, both have reference customers in both public and private environments, both posses a broad experience in the market and have received Microsoft’s recognition with national and international awards. For all of this, both companies understand this is an strategical agreement that will help the Azure positioning in large accounts, providing better and larger use of all the capabilities that this Cloud offers.

Luís Flores, CEO at Open Sistemas.

Also, both CAPSiDE and OpenSistemas will integrate this agreement within the initiatives driven by Microsoft to create synergies and collaboration between their partners. In fact, both companies agree that this Azure alliance will improve its positioning as an open Cloud platform that resolves and answers clients’ requirements. “This agreement is an example of the Microsoft relational commercialisation and business-friendly model. Both partners have identified our capabilities and strengths that, united, strengthen our positioning at Microsoft and in the market”, concludes de CEO at OpenSistemas.
