Odette FTP open sourced in a closed marketBruno Borges | July 6, 2010
Neociclo is proud to announce that it has open sourced its Odette FTP Java API implementation. This is an important achievement inside the B2B and Managed File Transfer market mainly because there are few implementations of this protocol and none are Open Source. Neociclo’s Accord Odette OFTP2 Library implements Odette FTP version 2.0, supporting new features like transport over TCP/IP.
The market that makes use of the Odette FTP technology is mostly composed by automotive industries, governments and financial companies. These companies trust on OFTP’s architecture by all means and require its use from its suppliers. Within this very specific market, few companies have implemented the protocol and all offers are closed source.
Neociclo found a way to join this closed market through an Open Source Business Model, because it believes that trustability, reliability and transparency are everything clients ask for from an Odette FTP implementation. And we believe only Open Source software can offer this.
Please, feel free to contact us for more details on support and training. And last but not least, if you work with Odette FTP and file transfers in general, join our community and help us build more quality software.
