Why KnitbITs? The versatility of KnitbITs precludes an easy answer. Or it should be that it is an amazingly versatile tool-set. You'll especially discover a need for it when information requires structuring along manageable dimensions of context and time. Now, in our information age that's fast changing from an exception to the rule. KnitbITs also adds structure to information management. Already reaching beyond the next main trend on the Internet, the semantic network, KnitbITs has been specifically designed for integrated operation of distributed information resources.
Strategically, there are three modes of deployment to profit from KnitbITs:
- Here you start from scratch. This is when you don't want to compromise on innovation and its rewards. KnitbITs helps you set a new level in flexibility, speed-to-market, auditability, distribution, interface, etcetera.
- You still value your legacy systems, but now require their tight integration. From this legacy perspective, KnitbITs exclusively operates on the metalevel controlling integrity. This is advised as an integration strategy's first step.
- With a mixed strategy you sensibly recognize the opportunities of both innovation and continuity. KnitbITs lets you migrate, step by careful step, from an information infrastructure dominated — and held back — by legacy systems toward pervasive information services.
