Committed to Open

SUSE's engineering approach is based on open source, which is therefore a core part of our business model and value proposition to our customers.

We aim to increase open source community engagement and open source adoption. This work is central to our mission of enabling better futures and delivering measurable value for our customers, employees, partners, communities and investors. 

Digital Inclusion

  • We believe SUSE can play a role in addressing the industry-wide talent shortage in the critical area of cloud-native application delivery, partnering to introduce the Cloud Native Application Architecture Nanodegree program.
