In KnitbITs, Information Dynamics implements guidelines and specifications from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The most prominent of such 'standards' are:
- eXtended Mark-up Language (XML)
- eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformation (XSLT)
- Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)
- Resource Description Format (RDF)
- web services.

KnitbITs extends the concept of the semantic web (see also W3C) through implementing the metapattern's view of context and time in information models.

An interaction annex state orientation is the software engineering principle for KnitbITs. Generalized as behavior, both traditional data and process emerge - exhibiting aspects of content and form - from patterned interaction/state components.

KnitbITs merges with agent technology.

See for the design perspective underlying KnitbITs as a web services application: The logical model of web services in KnitbITs. Another conceptual perspective determines how relationships are constructively established as a kind of objects, too. See The two-fold variety of nodes in KnitbITs.

KnitbITs is operated from a browser interface.

Server components are developed with .NET C#.
