Guided Solution Design

Solidground consists of a set of design and development tools that allow creators and their clients to collaborate closely on creating solutions that integrate with the Social Web. Following a customizable method of Social experience design, the tools provide guidance through the development process, automate workflows and tasks, and help ensure the needs of all stakeholders are properly addressed. The resulting solution is a hosted social experience, which is tailored to the client environment, highly extensible, and easy to adapt to changing needs.

Groundwork Hosting

Groundwork connects the moving parts of your solution, the tools you use and any external systems. Supporting local-first development and synchronisation to your self-hosted services. Groundwork also hooks you into the evolving Social Web. Any Solidground creator and client can become your partner, as you reap benefits from their solutions or the building blocks they publish to the ever-growing ecosystem. Administer your hosted services from any location.

Taskweave Engine

Taskweave provides an integrated workflow engine, that allows you to adapt your processes to your unique environment and modify them to changing circumstances. Taskweave helps your solution to evolve. Moldable processes under your control can manipulate all artifacts of your solution, as well as those comprising the tool suite itself. Optimize process recipes, automate your tasks, and reach unprecedented levels of productivity.

Floorplanner Designer

Floorplanner is the collaborative design space where client and creator iterate on the solution blueprint. Following best-practices defined in the process recipes stakeholders move through the various tasks and automated steps. The blueprint keeps track of all design artifacts and ensures that docs, specs, configuration, and code are up-to-date and in sync. Floorplanner helps refine needs, plans, use cases, behavior and business rules, and also supports the UX design.

Solidground is a Moldable Operational System

What we offer is a new type of software. We call it a Moldable Operational System, or MOS. A MOS removes the artificial boundary between software creators, their projects and the resulting software deliverables consumed by their clients. A MOS recognizes the entire software lifecycle, where client needs and business domains always evolve. A MOS anticipates this by making IT stakeholders and their needs intrinsic to the operational system, and adjacent to the client's needs. Design, development, operation and use is a collaborative process between client and creator, that is supported by the system while it is in production. Floorplanner Designer can be bundled to become integral part of your evolving solution. Our tools at your fingertips.

Social experience

Reimagine Social. Solidground considers any online interaction between people to be a form of social networking. We go beyond restrictive notions of "apps" that have become so dominant in our thinking. Applications form unnatural siloes of functionality, creating boundaries that hamper efficient collaboration. Solutions created with our tool suite are "social experiences" that are made to fit perfectly into their broader surroundings and are integral parts that are hosted on the Social Web.

Moldable process

Coding is Social. Seamless collaboration requires tools to be tailored to the tasks at hand and familiar practices. Use cases must tightly integrate with existing processes and systems, and tailored to the people that use them. Many development tools are like hammers that make everything look like a nail. Made for specific audiences they are non-inclusive. Solidground offers a moldable inclusive development environment that can be fully customized to preferences and work methods of all stakeholders.

Needs based evolution

Solutions Naturally Evolve. Software isn't delivered in one-off fashion. Good solutions are easily adapted to changing conditions and needs. Many software projects start with a clear focus, but over time diverge from objectives set at the start, and fail to match expectations of the client. Solidground social experience design involves all stakeholders and puts client needs central during the entire solution lifecycle. Our component based development approach assures your long-term flexibility and agility.

Together we innovate. Let's reimagine social!

Social Web is about people. Communication, collaboration and co-creation. We can build a Peopleverse. Solidground is Free Software and you can help make it better.
