The Collaborative Approach

Core Teams

At our core, we are committed
to delivering service - pure customer value.
To that end, the Collaborative Software Initiative offers a comprehensive set of services to take a project from an idea through the application lifecycle and beyond.

Collaboration &
Community Building

We recruit and establish a core team, including both subject matter experts and software developers, to define the problem and desired solution as well as create a set of activities to accelerate the delivery of that solution.

Project
Management

We map the team resources to project requirements and design communication and commitment plans to ensure milestones are met. We manage the entire process - start to finish - allowing developers to work solely on code and subject matter experts to provide ongoing input and monitor for progress.

OSS Foundation
Development & Management

Once a project is completed, the code can be placed in our nonprofit entity where it can live and be accessed in perpetuity. Best practices for each project are made available to the community.

The Results Customers have described the benefits of working with Collaborative Software Initiative as:

  • Knocking down barriers to success quickly
  • Providing innovative practical approaches to problem solving
  • Enhancing the performance of teams, leaders and individuals alike
  • Empowering teams to find the real solution to the problem at hand
  • Delivering applications at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods
