Open Source is the Enterprise Solution Winner

At Blue Stingray we specialize in development and customization of open source cloud applications built on platforms such as Odoo ERP and Magento e-commerce. Both of these open source products are enterprise-level platforms loaded with options that make today’s corporations more competitive. Open source software solutions like Odoo and Magento can be customized to fit any client’s specific business needs.

In fact, open source platforms are already preferred solutions at many leading companies. This Wired article explains how companies like ExxonMobil, London Stock Exchange Group, JP Morgan, and Wells Fargo not only use open source technologies, but they develop and distribute their own open source solutions. Brian Rehg, our CEO, has developed software solutions using open source technologies for organizations such as the Department of Defense, the United States Air Force, A.G. Edwards (now Wells Fargo), and MasterCard International before founding Blue Stingray.  

Here are links to a few open source initiatives by large global companies.

Blue Stingray software engineers are equipped to support cloud-based, open source platforms developed in different programming languages. The reason we prefer open source technologies is simple: We love being part of an open source community that develops highly customizable software. Open source is developed by a community of global developers, and the Blue Stingray team is part of that revolution. By combining efforts globally, the open source community can build affordable, enterprise-level software systems ideal for small to mid-sized companies.

Why Do Large Companies Choose Open Source?

We also enjoy frequently contributing to the Odoo platform code and solving problems that don’t come with an out-of-the-box solution. In this way we are not only contributing to our own successes and those of our clients, but to the progress of a global community.

One of our open source initiatives is the development of Odoo apps, which we publish frequently in the Odoo Apps store. Read about the release of our 20th Odoo app here.


I have known Brian now for close to decade.  He is not only a brilliant IT professional and CEO but he is a very caring person as well.  Brian has grown Blue Stingray exponentially since he started the company while doing great things for our community along the way.  He has always been a great encourager to me as a fellow CEO and I am certain that his caring, encouraging nature is one of the secrets to building a strong team and client base for Blue Stingray.
