At nCube Development, we want to provide you the best solutions for your technical needs. That is why we are able to offer not only custom developed software and websites but off-the-shelf (OTS) products and solutions too. Why reinvent wheel if you do not need to? Many OTS systems are free to use, community developed and have a lot of support. Most of them also have a professional upgrade component too that allows for additional features and customer support.
Here at nCube, one of our goals is to match the right technology solution with your needs and not suggest something just because it is a more expensive option. We want to win your business and loyalty for life and not worry about making a quick buck.
If you think you might benefit from or are interested in learning more about an OTS solution, just give us a quick call or email and we will be glad to discuss the pros and cons of whatever OTS product you are interested in finding out more about. Since there are literally hundreds of OTS products, if you are interested in one that we are not familiar with, we will gladly research it from a technical perspective and share our findings with you so that you can decide if it is right for you and worth investing in.
Below are a few of the more popular OTS systems that we have installed, configured, customized and supported. Feel free to contact us for any additional information on any of these products.

MediaWiki is a free web-based wiki software application. Developed by the Wikimedia Foundation, it is used to run all of its projects, including Wikipedia, Wiktionary and Wikinews. Numerous other wikis around the world also use it to power their websites. It is written in the PHP programming language and uses a backend database. The software is optimized to correctly and efficiently handle projects of all sizes, including the largest wikis, which can have terabytes of content and hundreds of thousands of hits per second. Because Wikipedia is one of the world’s largest websites, achieving scalability through multiple layers of caching and database replication has also been a major concern for developers. Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects continue to define a large part of the requirement set for MediaWiki. The software is highly customizable, with more than 700 configuration settings and more than 1,800 extensions available for enabling various features to be added or changed. More than 600 automated and semi-automated bots and other tools have been developed to assist in editing MediaWiki sites. MediaWiki is free and open source software and is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2 or any later version while its documentation is released under the Creative Commons BY-SA 3.0 license and partly in the public domain. MediaWiki development has generally favored the use of open-source media formats.
