Groupe Hybride

Collections management and publication full-web software



Open source solutions and collection management

Everything is moving very fast and many spectacular projects are emerging: projects dealing with new technologies, virtualization, interface, web 2.0. ….

We are talking about social networks, mediation, immersion. For museums, as places of knowledge, everything they know is being turned upside down. Visits are becoming virtual, the imagination takes form in 3D, localization loses its meaning, culture has to be available everywhere...

In this multitude of offers, surrounded by passing phenomena, we have to find our bearings, make the right choices.

This is the everyday life of a cultural center manager or a museum curator in his choice of guided tours, of equipment, of events, of communication. Business service providers find themselves in the same situation, trying to find a balance between innovation and stability, short-term and long-term decisions.

Responding to the needs of the cultural sector, software developers are looking for innovations, inventors and system integrators of new business solutions.

Since the beginning of SKINsoft's adventure, the free software sector caught our eye; we desire to contribute to this community momentum, this collective project.

We are working today to develop and increase the reliability of tools that we and others are using daily to build software solutions that are more reliable, flexible, accessible and cost-effective.

The question raised at the beginning of the project was: Does SKINsoft have to be a free product?

The business model for free software is very real. In the U.S.A. for instance, it primarily concerns universal software tools which are free from the business sector; the development community is therefore dynamic, and the durability of the product is guaranteed.

For business applications, the context is usually different: the software lifetime is uncertain, and so is the maintenance. Everything has to do with the persistence of the development community.

SKINsoft is an open product, an assembly of open-source programs, but the core of its business application is proprietary software. For our customers, this means a long-term quality of service guarantee.

More than the software, free or proprietary, it's the technology we use that makes our programs accessible to every kind of company, small collection or great museum. Thus, the full web software, accessible from any computer equipped with a web browser and connected to a network, is without a doubt within everyone's reach.
