How TSANet Started
During 1993, several major technology leaders sought the need for a vendor neutral support alliance to help solve rising interoperability challenges technology companies were facing. These original companies had the foresight to see where technology and support strategy was headed. We were moving into a new era, one where the customer became the focal point requiring many technology competitors to cooperate.
