Sourcesense is a market leader for the system integration of enterprise-grade solutions based on key Open Source technologies. We design, build and operate end-to-end services for your clients on premise or on the Cloud infrastructure of your choice.
Sourcesense has a unique mix of knowledge and experience to offer a real balance between Open Source and traditional, proprietary solutions, taking the concept of Open Source to a new level of pragmatic and quantifiable advantages for the enterprise.
Sourcesense provides full coverage of Open Source needs for enterprise-class customers: we help corporations understand and adopt Open Source using a comprehensive strategic consultancy approach, and we are continuously selecting proven Open Source technologies that we directly support and integrate.
The Sourcesense team is value-led. We have a strong team with hundreds of combined years of experience in Open Source technologies, and we add that value as an immediate, measurable advantage to our clients.
The Open Source is based on two pillars: people and collaboration. Valuable people who create value, collaboration matures communities and creates additional value. Sourcesense respects these principles. We strongly believe that the collaborative methods typical of communities are changing production processes even within companies.
For a developer, there is no better place than Sourcesense to grow and to shine. Our approach to Open Source is pragmatic: we use proprietary components when the solution to the problems of our customers requires it, but it is the attention to the fundamental pillars of Open Source to guide us. For this reason, we encourage our developers to participate in and contribute to organisations such as the Apache Software Foundation.
