In 2011, eZ extended the eZ brand and the eZ Systems company into the eZ Systems Group. The eZ Systems Group was created in order to develop new, innovative solutions that can be combined with eZ software to maximize its effectiveness, and can also serve as stand-alone services. Yoochoose, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of content personalization and recommendation technology, is the first company to become part of the eZ Systems Group.
