Annkissam builds software that supports a nonprofit's unique operations, data, reporting and outcome measures. Our technology allows us to build custom systems that are affordable for small and medium sized organizations or workgroups within larger organizations.
Open source software, in which the source code is available to be reviewed by everyone, is often a collaborative effort of volunteers around the world. This transparency means bugs and security issues can be fixed quickly by the community, without the expense of ongoing licensing fees that typically accompany proprietary platforms. We have carefully selected open source platforms that have large community support and which we believe are a good choice for the organizations we serve.
Drupal is one of the largest and fastest growing open-source content management system available today. It boasts a massive development community that continually improves and supports Drupal sites and systems worldwide. Nonprofits may not always have the funding to afford fully customized systems or more expensive off-the-shelf products. Drupal provides a very cost effective solution for nonprofits as it is modular and provides substantial functionality out of the box.
Linux is an open source operating system that is widely used for servers and embedded systems (such as smartphones) around the world. There are a wide variety of software tools available to support our application hosting and system administration. We use linux because it provides a stable operating platforms for our client applications.
