At the beginning of this year, we announced that Cerner became a bronze-level sponsor of the non-profit Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Many of the open source projects we use and contribute to are under the ASF umbrella, so supporting the mission and work of the ASF is important to us.
We’re happy to announce that Cerner has now increased our sponsorship of the ASF to become a silver-level sponsor. Open source continues to play an integral role in both our architecture and engineering culture. We’ve blogged and spoken at conferences about how several ASF projects are core foundational components in our architecture and several of our tech talks have focused on ASF projects.
Further increasing our sponsorship of the ASF reaffirms our continued support for an organization that provides homes for numerous open source projects that are important not only to us, but the larger development community.
