What We Offer

We deliver advanced software technology to solve real-world problems. Building on the many open-source platforms that we create and support, we develop custom software solutions to enable our customers and collaborators to deploy the latest in computing technologies. We deliver these solutions on the computing platforms of choice, from mobile device to supercomputer, using advanced software and web architectures.

We also participate in research and development initiatives, as our open software processes are tailor-made to transform research into practical applications. We provide support and installation services as well, which include training, books, and personalized courses.

Our value proposition includes many additional benefits that only an open-source approach can provide. Our software platforms are used worldwide by large communities, ensuring that their code bases are of high-quality and perform well. Being open, customers can take ownership of the products we deliver without fear of vendor lock-in, and they can hire staff who have been trained in standard, open platforms. Long-term software maintenance costs are also typically reduced, since active open-source communities constantly improve code quality.

While we prefer to develop open software, we understand the need to create custom, proprietary software for customers who require competitive advantage. We frequently provide cost-effective hybrid solutions, where standard software infrastructure and the corresponding maintenance burden is carried by the community, and the customer focuses resources on developing a proprietary core.

Training

We offer standard and customized training courses for all of our open-source products. Choose to host a course, or come to our offices. All training is interactive, so customers can complete exercises in their own development environments. For questions or quotes, please contact kitware@kitware.com.

Customized Courses

For specific training needs that are not met by our standard courses, consider a customized course. Customized courses target audiences of five or more attendees. Courses can consist of any combination of the following material.

The Visualization Toolkit
Get started using the Visualization Toolkit (VTK), or learn how to extend the software with classes. Training on this topic ranges from one to four days.

ParaView
