For the past 15 years VDEL have continually promoted and implemented the most up to date achievements in Information Technology.
The age of Open Source has arrived. Linux and Open Source applications are now a part of almost every IT system.

Over the past few years we have striven to ensure that we take advantage of this maturing market, offering a range of Open Source and best of breed IBM applications.

On the 5th of November 2008 VDEL announced the integration of these elements together into a single comprehensive program:



This VDEL program backed by IBM will strive to unite Independent Software Vendors and integrators world-wide.

On joining the software united program, customers will receive full development kits from VDEL which will enable developments based on Lotus, Tivoli, Informix, DB2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux .

VDEL will certify these applications in association with IBM and promote them throughout the world using well known, established channels. Full 1st and 2nd level support will be assured through the certified support centers in the regions.

The VDEL Conference presented this attractive program and discussed the various options for its implementation.

The Conference covered these software united programs:

desktop united All required licenses and subscriptions are included - guaranteed. Users also receive world-wide 
Support for any purchased desktop applications based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and IBM software
serve united This platform for servers running Red Hat Enterprise Linux and IBM software includes all required licenses and
