Philosophy / Goals

OpenTech uses and propagates free/libre open-source software, not due to potential cost savings, but due to a technical superiority.

We at OpenTech are convinced that this technical superiority can be used to build safe industrial applications that fulfill the high standards of modern industrial applications.

The Goal of every OpenTech project is to transfer the OpenTech knowledge to the customer to assure control over long-term maintainability to the customer and thus mitigate a vendor lock-in. Therefore we offer customers to schedule workshops and trainings were the customers engineers are not only handed a resulting piece of work but also the tools to achieve the result on their own.

OpenTech has many years of experience in managing and mitigating the risks of using open-source software. Helping you to gain this experience yourself will help your company to estimate and mitigate those risks -- be they related to licensing, technical or management issues.

OpenTech strives to know as many open-source tools as possible this not only gives us the possibility to select the best tool for the job, but if exact match is available adapt an existing tool or design a new one.
