Software Technologies

Katalyst software development team is organized into three practices:

Open Source

Open Source Practice

Katalyst’s Open Source Practice has practical experience in delivering solutions using the increasingly available Open Source tools and applications. We believe that many Open Source applications have matured to a point that they are effective in providing reliable, scalable and secure solutions, while lowering the overall implementation costs. Our clients are considerably more open to the idea of development/ migration of applications to the Open Source platform.

The Katalyst Open Source development team focuses on the creation and modification of Open Source software to suit various business needs. Katalyst handles the complete life cycle, which includes requirements gathering, design, development, testing, and integration. The Open Source development team has significant expertise and experience in many areas including web applications, kernel modification, and network protocol development.
