Our Motivation

Building easy to use software you can trust

Email, calendaring and communication are more than mission critical services for the success of companies. The data that is transferred and stored in these services contain proprietary and private information from all parts of your business as well. We built easy-to-get and easy-to-use open source software that enables you to take control of your data.

People generate data every day. We at Kopano believe that the owners of data should have full control on where the data is stored, how it is secured and who can access the data. This is what we understand as data sovereignty for both individuals and user groups or organizations

Our vision of digital sovereignty in its purest form is to operate a defined service including the management of its data in every step under full control. So data sovereignty is a requirement for any software service. The highest grades of digital sovereignty require lots of technical experience and know-how. If one is able to operate software in full digital sovereignty and it is proved that this software was built by using the same source code, there can be trust in the data sovereignty of this software being operated on an easier to manage platform or in the cloud.

This is why the source code of our software is openly available and our development processes are fully transparent. In our view it is imperative to obtain digital sovereignty that organizations have the option to self-operate all our software. It is the same software which runs in different platforms and hybrid or private clouds. Our goal is to provide easy to get and easy to use communication and collaboration software that can be operated in a digital sovereign way.
