"The OpenNMS team has been working since last year to perfect an open-source, Web-based network management system that will compete with closed-source versions from IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Computer Associates."

"As a subsidiary of Atipa, OpenNMS will continue to operate in Cary. Giles, president of the division, said he expects to add 20 employees in the next year and forecasts a staff of 105, mostly support technicians, by 2003."

"OpenNMS' network management software, currently called Bluebird, will start being tested by customers next month and will be ready for a commercial release next spring. Like all open-source software, the OpenNMS version will be free -- a stark contrast to expensive network management software from established vendors. Atipa's plan is to make money through service and support contracts."
