About Knowledge Integration
Knowledge Integration was founded in 1999 by Ian Ibbotson. Fellow Director Rob Tice joined the company in 2002 followed by Neil Smith in 2003. All three directors have extensive experience of the software industry in general and the Digital Library, eLearning and eGoverment sectors in particular. Knowledge Integration and its directors are well known and respected both within the UK and worldwide with close links to key initiatives in Europe, USA and Australasia.
From the outset, we have been committed to the concept and principles of open source software, and have been keen advocates for the breaking down of barriers to its widespread acceptance.
The other main pillar upon which we build our software is a commitment to the development and adoption of open standards to facilitate interoperability. Our standards page provides more information on some of the key standards, and standards bodies, that we work with.
Partly because we're a small company, and partly because it's a natural aspect of our 'open' approach to development, K-Int often collaborate with partners to deliver projects for customers. Our partners page lists some of the people and companies we've worked with recently.
Knowledge Integration deliver consultancy and bespoke software development for a range of public and private sector clients. We also provide software under commercial licensing and support agreements to major third party vendors. Our open source products and toolkits are also widely used throughout the world. For details of some of the diverse range of organisations who use K-Int software go to our clients page and for information on the forms of license available visit our licensing page.
