Our goal is to help charities implement technology solutions to accomplish their missions. We do this by providing a set of open source software tools called CORE (Central, Open, Reusable, Easy).
CORE creates a foundation of base-services that will drive rapid, inexpensive software development that can run on multiple infrastructure abstraction layers: i.e. any hypervisor, any infrastructure, any PaaS platform. Unlike today’s methods that price many necessary projects out of the market, CORE services are meant to open new pathways for low cost and rapid innovation. By providing building blocks into the global community at no cost, students and experienced developers alike can more quickly solve problems and deploy them into the community or commercialize those. Just as the desktop publishing revolution sparked creativity around the world so will CORE services spark technical innovators to try new things at minimal cost.
The CORE architecture is comprised of a set of components designed to be used interchangeably to enable to development of high quality services in a fast and cost effective manner. The architecture leverages a variety of open sources and COTS (“commercial off the shelf”) components to deliver this capability. CORE is free to use by anyone, with or without our help. However, many charities lack specific technology domain expertise. In these cases, we provide world class technology strategy, planning, and development services to our partners.
CoreTech Foundation helps nonprofits use technology for social good. Thanks to the open source movement, we're placing traditionally expensive and sophisticated technology in the hands of the nonprofit world, so they can implement virtually any software-driven solution using our scaling platform and consulting services.
