Four universities have joined Unicon's Cooperative Support Program for the open source Sakai collaboration and course management platform, the uPortal enterprise portal framework, and Centralized Authentication Service (CAS) single-sign-on platform. These include California State University, Sacramento; the University of Rhode Island in Kingston; the University of Wisconsin-Madison; and Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. The Cooperative Support Program provides member institutions with a predictable cost support structure for their open source applications along with a team of development and technical specialists who deliver direct support and assistance. The program includes scalable support options and discounts when multiple platforms are selected. All development work and fixes performed by the team for individual institutions are contributed back and shared with the respective open source communities.
Unicon currently has 30 colleges and universities enrolled in its Cooperative Support Program.
