Houston, Texas based OpenTeams is nearing the release of its collaborative innovation software-as-a-service. We have been working closely with OpenTeams since June ’05 in brainstorming, designing and implementing a Web 2.0 application that will revolutionize the way organizations innovate.
“OpenTeams is specifically engineered to incubate ideas in an internal free market with self-organized virtual teams. These teams evolve raw initiatives into mature business plans ready for management sponsorship and implementation. By catalyzing organizational innovation, OpenTeams inspires a company culture of employee engagement and entrepreneurialism.”
– Tory Gattis, President
OpenTeams is built around wikis, tags and blogs for users to collaborate, organize and retrieve information. In addition to these, however, OpenTeams will introduce a number of other interfaces never before seen in browser-based or other group-based software applications. Readability, collaboration and presentation are at the heart of these interfaces.
- PHP running on Linux Apache
- MySQL Database
- Subversion Repository for Content
- Client-Server AJAX
While it remains to be seen, we are confident that OpenTeams adopters will enable internal innovation and more efficiently allocate organizational talent. Simply said, OpenTeams will help companies identify opportunities, build up creative momentum and implement ideas.
While the release date is not yet firm, we are anticipating BETA testing through December and initial releases in early 2007.
