Jumping Bean history, philosophy and vision

Jumping Bean started in June 2001 with the firm belief that the open source integration and Java development market in South Africa was being under-serviced by existing software development houses and system integrators. Existing service and product providers focused solely on implementing solutions on proprietary platforms and technologies with the concomitant increased total cost of ownership and vendor lock-in for customers. With this understanding Jumping Bean aims to provide high quality, cost effective open source solutions to the South African market by using:

  • our strong technical and business skills,
  • open source software, which results in significant cost savings with increases in security, reliability and performance, and by
  • writing software that is standards compliant and uses standard compliant technologies, allowing our customer freedom of platform/vendor choice.
