It is important that you are empowered by your software solutions to meet your business needs. Open Source softwares give you the flexibility and control over your computer solutions thus providing a more favourable environment for your business to grow to greater heights.

Our vision is anchored on the four software freedoms as summarised by the Free Software Foundation:-

  • The freedom to run the program, for any purpose.
  • The freedom to study how the program works and adapt it to your needs.
  • The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help others.
  • The freedom to improve the program and release your improvements to the public, so that everyone benefits.

We also actively support the on-going Global Open Hardware, Open Data and Open Document Initiatives.

Join us as we promote these platforms that will enable all nations to participate in the 4th industrial revolution.
