Collabora's project managers and technical leads work with your existing team to keep development on schedule and keep people focused.

Our lightweight processes can integrate with your traditional, Agile, Scrum, or open source methodologies. Whether managing Collabora's developers or yours, project management often takes care of these tasks

  • Facilitate answers to technical and logistical questions
  • Set up code review, integration, QA, and communication processes
  • Give detailed feedback
  • Triage bugs
  • Write specifications, use cases, and sprint plans
  • Make and disseminate clear project roadmaps and status reports

Project managers at Collabora also understand the unusual constraints and opportunities that come with open source work. When we customise open source software for our clients, we aren't just satisfying their business needs. We're negotiating with a developer community, a devoted user base, a project release schedule, and integration into major desktops and distributions.

Strong, consistent project management can save a deadline, a release, and an entire product. And it'll reassure core, occasional and future developers and testers -- not to mention marketing, systems administration and operations, and the other parts of your enterprise.

Other products and services from Collabora


Collabora | Services | Infrastructure

Well-run social and technical infrastructure facilitates a good relationship with the community, making it easier to get patches upstream and integrate nicely with complementary tools, platforms, services, and applications. You can use that time to code, to make strategic decisions, and to find and mentor contributors (who will turn into reliable maintainers of your project, making it self-sustaining).


Collabora | Services | Architecture

Collabora's experienced engineers assess your situation, review existing open source solutions, and design a recommended architecture. Which tradeoffs suit the needs of your product and schedule. Which Linux distribution is the best fit for your project.


Collabora | Services | Consultancy

Collabora was founded by establised members of the open source community which has provided the organisation with the knowledge and ability to work with the upstream open source projects in a succesful and productive manner. Collabora employ experienced open source developers from a wide range of important open source projects, going from the kernel and all the way up to the user interface.


Collabora | Services | Training

GStreamer maintainer and Collabora engineer Wim Taymans performed training sessions for one client, and worked with them to design and expand the RTSP serving capabilities of GStreamer, which in turn they added to their devices. If your staff doesn't know how to integrate open source software and practices into their workflow, or just needs help understanding a specific framework, we'll train them.
