Privacy-friendly open source software solutions

Konnektiv´s Tech Team provides Open-Source Software solutions, alongside respective advisory services and capacity building formats.

Our services centrally revolve around four service areas. We develop our own open-source solutions, integrate WordPress-based software solutions, and embed our clients’ in-house systems into open software solutions. We provide hosting, maintenance, and capacity building support. This framework allows us to provide tailor made complete service packages for each client.

Building on and with the WordPress software ecosystem

Our tech team works with WordPress as root software system and builds with, and on, the massive ecosystem of plugins and integration of external services. This ecosystem allows for a wide range of opportunities, that range from building social network environments to learning management platforms, or job creation platforms. Through the integration of features such as collaborative working tools or video conferencing tools, our modular open-source service environment provides us with the technological solutions to realise a wide range of services required in international cooperation workflows, and beyond.

Building Open-Source software solutions

We also develop new open-source software solutions where specific needs cannot be supported by existing software. In line with the open-source software culture we do avoid developing from scratch but seek to build on existing features. This contributes to the community and saves costs for the client. In this line we also integrate various existing open-software solutions, such as WordPress features and the online conferencing and webinar tool Big Blue Button.

Embedding clients’ in-house systems into Open-Source ecosystems

Our clients also bring their own in-house software systems to us, which we integrate into open-source ecosystems where it is not possible to entirely migrate to open-source system.

In line with this ethos, we do also migrate entire systems from proprietary to open-source and we offer the service to migrate from proprietary to open-source systems in order to make it easier for our clients to expand their software ecosystem with further features as they evolve.

Hosting, maintenance and capacity building support

We offer an in-house hosting service for our clients. As a small team, hosting with us means less bureaucracy, faster response times, and personal client support. Responsible data principles form the foundation of the services we offer. We adhere to these standards through the provision of local data storage, frequent backups and constant monitoring preventing outages. Our clients can also decide to host their data in-house and we take care of server set-up, hosting and maintenance.

We train all our clients on the systems we build for them in order to facilitate understanding and easy in-house use.
