Several resources, with years of international experience in open source project development and coordination, work at the competence center that provides a complete, integrated offer of services, projects and certified professional skills.

Open source products developed by Engineering
The distinguishing feature of Engineering is to release software that maintains a balance between the integrator’s vision, that designs and realizes solutions that are innovative and competitive on the market, that can satisfy their clients’ needs with a high level of flexibility and integrability, and the vision of the producer who releases mature, reliable solutions that have a full set of support services.
Open source products guarantee all the users for independence of solutions, quality of development and their availability over time.
To accompany their own clients in the adoption of their most successful product Knowage, Engineering has created a specific organizational unit with the aim of providing assistance during all phases of use. Services foresee technical support, special consultancy packages, training, support for independent producers and customized solution development assistance.
