Company philosophy


During the 90s, open source and Linux began to gain a significant advantage over proprietary systems, such as those from Microsoft. Businesses have recognized and appreciated the economic benefits offered by open source, along with the flexibility this approach offers to customize software to meet particular needs. Furthermore, over time, Linux and other open source operating systems have evolved, becoming more intuitive and easier to manage.

At the same time, world-class companies such as Google, Facebook and Amazon have developed high-quality Open Source software solutions, capable of effectively competing with Microsoft products. This has helped further increase the adoption of Linux and other open source operating systems for enterprise applications, challenging Microsoft's dominant position.

Aligning ourselves with this trend, our philosophy has consolidated in embracing the Open Source movement, making use of software and open source code coming from research centers, universities, or technological giants such as Google, Facebook, Netflix and Spotify. We firmly believe that the use of open source technologies represents an advantageous strategic choice, both for us and for the customers we serve. Open Source Logo Why opt for Open Source? The answer is rooted both in our academic training and in the potential that this technological offer entails. Open source has been the focus of the university studies in computer science that our employees and collaborators have undertaken. Beyond training, open source code is an invaluable resource that gives anyone the ability to use, modify, and distribute software.

This collaborative environment allows developers to work together to continuously improve the software, fixing bugs and expanding its functionality. Furthermore, open source is cost-effective. Often, there are no user licenses to purchase, thus reducing the costs associated with managing and installing the software.

Today Open Source, and Linux in particular, occupies a position of great importance in the global technological panorama. It has now spread to many of the digital tools we use every day. A practical example is the Android operating system, present on over two billion devices worldwide. Based on Linux, Android represents a clear testimony of how open source has become an integral part of our daily lives.

We strongly believe that open source represents an inexhaustible source of innovation and a means to provide our customers with efficient, reliable and customized solutions.
The adoption of open source immerses us in an ongoing process of research and development, both inside and outside our organization. The right to freely access and use the source code of other developers and companies allows us to integrate highly valuable functionality into our services, which benefits our customers.

Open source also gives us the opportunity to collaborate closely with the vast community of developers globally. This allows us to help improve the open source software we use in our services and, at the same time, benefit from innovations made by others.

In summary, open source offers us the possibility of offering a wider range of services and features to our customers, keeping costs low and guaranteeing greater flexibility. This translates into the ability to provide more efficient and customizable solutions, capable of meeting the specific needs of our customers, for an overall higher quality experience.
