Information on how, and in which situations to use acronyms for products at SUSE

linkSUSE corporate product acronyms

Product names should always be spelled out completely as it helps to build and reinforce the SUSE brand.

There are a few instances where acronyms may be used but they are limited to following places:

  • Social media including hashtags (not blogs)
  • Tables with limited real estate
  • Vanity URLs
  • Event descriptions with limited word counts
* Note for social media hashtags an underscore should be used instead of a dash. For example SUSE_CAP, SUMA_Retail, etc.
