LibreOffice in business

LibreOffice Community from The Document Foundation is great for home and small office users. TDF does not provide technical support for the software; users can get help from others on our mailing lists and Ask LibreOffice.

LibreOffice is also great for schools, educational and research institutions, and large organisations; in these cases, we strongly recommend using LibreOffice Enterprise versions from one of our ecosystem partners, such as those listed below. In that way, you can get long-term Service Level Agreements (SLA), personalised assistance, technical support, and custom new features. Furthermore, the work done by ecosystem partners flows back into the LibreOffice project, benefiting the larger community of LibreOffice users.

LibreOffice Enterprise doesn't refer to a single product, but a family of products built upon LibreOffice with the additional benefits mentioned above.

Ecosystem partners

The following companies are part of our Advisory Board, and are shown in random order.

  • allotropia - services, consulting and products around LibreOffice
  • Collabora - Collabora Office, Collabora Online

Note that additional professional support options are available.

Migrations and training

The Document Foundation, the non-profit entity behind LibreOffice, offers an extensive certification program. Certified professionals are able to provide value-added professional services to grow the LibreOffice ecosystem, and have the objective of extending the reach of the community to the corporate world, by offering CIOs and IT managers a recognition in line with proprietary offerings. Similarly, LibreOffice Certified Migration Consultants are individuals who have proven their ability in planning and managing a LibreOffice deployment either in a public administration or in an enterprise. They are able to implement the Migration Protocol provided by The Document Foundation (or a similar migration process).

LibreOffice in the cloud

LibreOffice Online is a server service built from the main LibreOffice project code which provides display and collaborative visual editing of a range of document types. See this page for the full details.
