 +====== What is the Evolutivo Initiative ======
  
 +Let me try to explain where the **Evolutivo Initiative** fits into the landscape. The Evolutivo Team is born as a joint venture between the companies Studio Synthesis and JPL TSolucio. Each of us on our own were, are and will continue to serve our clients, helping them to cover their business needs using computer software tools to the best of our knowledge. Specifically we will strive to use OpenSource software as much as possible, mainly because we are mostly programmers and analyst who have the know how to adapt the software to fit perfectly to each clients requirements, something that can easily (only?) be done with OpenSource software.
 +
 +Due to the similarity in our business approach, both companies decide to join forces and share knowledge, experience, code, tools and resources in general to solve the business problems of our clients. This takes us to accept bigger projects and create OpenCubed as a company of programming and marketing resources to attend our more demanding needs.
 +
 +As we evolve in this new situation we see that we have created (at least) two new business streams.
 +
 +**One** is totally oriented to the vtiger CRM implementor. Evolutivo is serving TSolucio and Studio Synthesis with experience it has acquired and absorbed from both companies an its clients needs. It has professional programmers in many languages, server specialist capable of installing and optimizing servers for web based applications like websites and vtiger CRM, backup and security professionals to take care of the servers and terminals. It has created tools to optimize the time spent solving problems and reduce to a minimum time spent on repetitive tasks, tools which we now use ourselves. We know how to play with the code and follow the rules so it is feasible to keep your customized vtiger CRM upgradable.
 +
 +So, just as TSolucio and Studio Synthesis benefit from this knowledge and experience we are trying to prepare all this for other vtiger CRM implementers. If we can use it, other companies can also and it should help them just as much as it helps us.
 +
 +This service is really resource oriented, so if you contract some programming hours or hosting space to install your vtiger CRMs for your clients and then decide to do it yourself or move to another company than you will have no problem, you will have full access to the code that was created for you and you will have full access to your installations and database, just like any other hosting, you should have no problem at all. The only difference is that we know how vtiger CRM works, so our server is prepared for it, really it is prepared for web applications (CMS, wordpress, joomla,...). In fact, that is all you can contract from Evolutivo: resources. If you need support or analysis you have to talk with another company, for example Studio Synthesis, TSolucio or any of the many companies out there taht can help you solve your problems.
 +
 +We are currently polishing this option and defining how it will work so there isn't much information available on this yet, specially on the evolutivo.it website, but this is the service I was thinking about when I answered the thread as this is where Evolutivo can help, giving hosting and support through Studio Synthesis.
 +
 +The **second** business stream that we stumbled upon is **vertical solutions**. As we adventured into bigger project where clients asked us to create a lot of code and adapt the system significantly, we found ourselves creating complete solutions for certain market segments. Obviously these customizations are subject to the license imposed by the contractor who, in the majority of cases doesn't want to lose his competitive advantage obtained by the economic and temopral effort invested. So these solutions we have to distribute normally as SAAS. If you decide to use one of these and then leave you are in the same position as if you had bought SalesForce(tm) or a similar service (although we may be easier to talk to). The thing is that this is easy to organize, announce and offer so it is what is currently visible on the Evolutivo website.
 +
 +I hope that with this I have been able to transmit the idea that Studio Synthesis (and TSolucio) is an Open Source (vtiger CRM) implementer with extensive business knowledge and experience to help any company in the world (Italy included ;-) ) get the best out of their software investment. This has nothing to do with Evolutivo which is "simply" backing up with resources and experience to get that work done.
