Strategic or Technical Intelligence Studies

Whether it is for selecting the best technology for a given project or defining your global Open Source strategy, we provide in-depth analysis based on renowned methodologies and processes.

Technical Intelligence

This type of study acts as a guideline for selecting the best technical approach to implement any project. LINAGORA follows a precise process divided in four steps: "define", "evaluate", "qualify" and "select" to deliver a functional matrix of surveyed technologies.

Such an analysis provides both quick and in-depth analysis across qualitatives aspects (sustainability, maturity, community, usability, adaptability,industrialization) as well as fit for clients specific needs.

Each software is evaluated on the following aspects:

  • interoperability (API interfaces, activity streams , etc. . );

  • sotware usability;

  • security and reliability;

  • industrialization support.

Our reports also include a recommended course of action with identified risks and benefits for each solution.

Strategic Report

The purpose of this study is to provide a global and current evaluation of the free software offerings of a given technology or functional area, following these steps:

  • introduction of the functional scope: role within the information system and architecture concepts;

  • up-to-date analysis of market solutions;

  • risk assessment (integration, industrialization and sustainability);

  • summarized review of market maturity and potential risks/benefits of such solutions in the client context.

Many renowed administration and private actors rely on our complete and pragmatic reports to define their strategic orientations.

Consulting

We build upon on our previous experiences with large-scale integration and deployment to help you identify the areas in your information system where Open Source solutions would bring technical or financial benefits, and determine how to plan for integration into your system.

Integration

Thanks to our own experience as a developer and publisher of end-user or low-level Open Source solutions, we can directly take on the integration effort to smoothly bring Open Source software into your infrastructure.

In-House Expertise

We are all passionnate. We all love helping people build their Open Source project. Sometimes the best way to help is to work hand-in-hand with our clients.
