Open source software have much greater value than simply getting something for free.
If open source software is primarily a vehicle for philosophical and ethical values, we believe it is the model that best promotes innovation and flexibility.
The open source model allows you to dedicate greater portions of your budgets to developments and innovations that will meet the strategic needs of your business and that will give you competitive advantages.
Open source software has been proven to provide better value, lower costs, improved security, and greater flexibility addressing the most important enterprise considerations today.
Giants such as Google, Apple (avec par exemple Webkit qui est le cœur des navigateurs tel que Safari, Google Chrome, Nokia QT, Blackberry, etc.), Sun (e.g. openoffice), IBM, ... have already understood this.
Since 2004, Nectil publishes open source softwares. These softwares were compiled in a web platform designed to create business applications: Officity.
Officity - web applications platform
Officity is designed for both users and developers:
For users, Officity is like Access or Filemaker on the web. You can create, expand, and share web applications directly from your Excel files and manage your data right away.
