The importance of business environmental sustainability and social responsibility is growing and we at Payara Services are doing our best to make sure our impact on the environment and our local community is as positive as possible. In the recent months, we’ve been implementing some changes to further improve in those areas. In addition to some environmentally friendly day-to-day behaviours that we take for granted (such as switching the lights off when we leave the office!) we are now taking some proactive steps to improve and make a more positive impact.
Payara is incredibly excited to announce our CEO, Steve Millidge, has been nominated for the Business Leader of the year & Open Source Leader of the Year at the Tech Leaders Awards 2019.

A lot of things were completely new for me last week: my first time in Japan, first time on a JUG tour, first time within the Japan Java community. And, it was my first time giving a talk which was translated by an interpreter. I also did live coding during my talk for the first time. It was even the first time I went to a Buddhist temple and a Sumo tournament. And all of it was a blast!
Breaking Agile Rules at Payara 03 Jun 2019
I'm a Project Manager at Payara and I love Agile.
“Payarans”. That’s the name we have for all team-members, regardless of whether they work in Payara’s brick-and-mortar offices or whether they’re remote, working from their own home-offices that are spread around the world in diverse places that include Japan, the US, Sweden, Colombia, the Netherlands, Portugal – the list goes on. Ensuring that these remote Payarans feel as much part of the team as those sitting in HQ is a fun challenge for Human Resources, and it’s an important one to get right. After all, without proactively promoting engagement, it’s easy for teams and individuals, particularly those who are remote, to become isolated and for a job to become – well, just a job.
Companies worldwide from multinationals to SMES, are investing heavily on Payara Enterprise. As the support service has a long list of benefits, we decided to analyse our customer survey, testimonials, and case studies to create a list of the top three benefits our customers enjoy with a Payara Enterprise Support contract.
