ownCloud expands partner network with OpenTalk and mspaces collaborations

The collaborations with OpenTalk, a provider of secure video conferencing, and mspaces, a company specializing in collaborative workspaces, are important steps toward ownCloud's goal of offering users a broad portfolio of stable and secure open source solutions made in Germany.

OpenTalk specializes in providing confidential video conferencing solutions that meet the highest security and privacy requirements, including GDPR compliance. As part of the partnership, ownCloud’s content collaboration solution will be integrated with OpenTalk’s secure video conferencing platform. As a result, users will be able to seamlessly share and collaborate on files and work results while benefiting from the digital sovereignty and highest security standards of OpenTalk and ownCloud. The new features resulting from the integration, such as the secure storage of meeting minutes or whiteboards in ownCloud’s highly scalable collaboration solution, will be available by the end of the first quarter of 2024.

ownCloud has formed another key partnership with mspaces. The company develops transparent and confidential workspaces for digital collaboration across organizations. mspaces is a complete solution delivered as SaaS, providing organizations with a holistic set of tools including content collaboration, chat and videoconferencing. By integrating the ownCloud Infinite Scale data platform, mspaces expands its digital workspace offering. The partnership is expected to help revolutionize the way organizations collaborate across boundaries.

Both partnerships were signed at this year’s it-sa, the IT security and privacy trade fair, which was a huge success for ownCloud. Both OpenTalk and mspaces exhibited at the ownCloud booth.

“The partnership with ownCloud is part of our strategy to integrate OpenTalk with proven open source solutions,” said Markus Michels, CEO of OpenTalk. “The ultimate goal is to ensure that our open source-based solution is easy, convenient and secure to use. With ownCloud, we have an established and powerful partner at our side to achieve this.”

“Two Bavarian companies are combining their expertise and innovative strength to create a new dimension of cooperation,” emphasizes Bernhard Theuer, one of the managing directors of mspaces. “The close cooperation between ownCloud and mspaces includes not only software integration, but also a joint Press release sales partnership and an exchange for the further development of both solutions.”
