Sun Microsystems has appointed Horizons Computer Learning Centres and Cybersite consulting as authorised Australian trainers for the vendor’s alternative to Microsoft’s office productivity software, StarOffice.
Horizons Computing Learning Centres is a NASDAQ-listed global IT education company; Cybersite is an Australian systems integrator that specialises in open source software.
Sun claims it authorised new education partners to cope with the demand it anticipates for StarOffice training once trials that are underway with potential corporate and Government customers are complete.
“We need to put our training partners in place because more and more of our customers are responding to StarOffice,” Sun’s general manager of education service, John Roker, said.
Between the two companies, Sun can offer StarOffice training onsite or at learning centres in Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
